I was thinking that a session or two in the foam pit or on the tramp, might just help me with my fear of getting any real air on the slopes. (I biffed hard a few times & found myself avoiding the rollers or checking my speed to keep from doin' it again. ...Yeah I know,.. I'm a Wuss!) ;-)

but I was thinking that I might be able to dial in some form or technique in a safe environment before taking it to the bunny hill opening day?

Do they let you strap into your board going off the tramp? Are the "Tweens" everywhere and r they as obnoxious as they usually seem to be?

What's the best time to go?
Any feedback would be appreciated! Thnx!
When I went it was a rail jam and yeah, mostly teens.

Dave can explain the jump more but for me it was basically useless for people like you and me wanting to work on straight airs and simple grabs. It's more for people working on getting inverted.
