Being a dad of similar situation, this was a HUGE help for me to ride safer and better in the park.
You may want to check them out if you haven't already.
Not saying I haven't slammed by any means, just a lot less had I not known what to do....
Thanks, I definitely want to check those out, I just haven't gotten around to it (other than their free ones). If this weather keeps up though, I should have plenty of time to watch videos

Glad to see you are doing ok though.

concussions can be really bad and the more you get them the worse they can get..

i don't ride rails and benches for this exact reason.
Thanks guys! I'm definitely going to go back to avoiding the park when conditions are hard/icy. I'll be taking a couple weeks off anyway the way the weather is here. I'm waiting for my home mountain to open (the way it's looking that could be even longer).
