It's completely different than the ones shown in the video on Katal Innovations Inc | The Landing Pad.

The ones in the video look awesome, even if you wipe out you slide out & away.
The one Cypress purchased is this one.
I foresee this one causing big wait times in between jumps. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I can picture people, whether landing their jump or not, riding up the other end of the landing area like a quarter pipe then back up the landing area.

I posted on their Facebook page that it's not too late to trade & get the other kind. Their reply was too bad this is the one we purchased.

I'll be all over it either way, unless they do some sort of cheesy fucking pay per jump or separate pass system. Cause as much as I like Cypress for their terrain, they are definitely the biggest greedy shysters out of the 3 Van hills!!

I wouldn't put it past them to try something like that.
I'll be front & center, starting the protest if they do.
You can count on that!!!!!


Well just as I predicted, Cypress is charging a fee to use the Air-bag.
I think that's pretty fuckin' cheesy.

Airbag Rates: Opening Special
Give it a try -
1 Jump* $2
5 Jumps* $8
*All participants must do a straight air test jump. (this is not included in the numbers above)

Helmets are mandatory.

All participants must sign a waiver to use the Airbag. Tickets can be purchased in Guest Relations.


Does anyone know if other mtn's charging per jump like this?
I searched a little bit, but could only find snowboard camps that had it & they were charging $40 a day unlimited use.

Time to stir the pot on Facebook, see if we can get this bullshit overturned

TT
