I still snowboard (49 years old), but absolutley no jumps or any park. I'd give up jumping or anything that jars your body. A lot of the type of damage you want to avoid is cumulative from all the small jolts you take. An acute impact of course could do the same thing, but just avoiding the acute impact won't protect your spine.

Below is my spine. It is held together with a plate and 4 screws after I had anterior diskectomy/cervical fusion several years ago. The disc underneath it is about shot, and it gives me more pain than the repaired disc does. Good luck!
