Yeah! Here's a pic of that run/chute in the back last may. I think it's about 45 degrees at the steepest part, and probably a good 400m long or so.



And here's a view the other day looking back up...



If you make it up here let me know and I'll give you the grand tour! lol

Do it, its a great learning tool, my 3's are noticably better now that I'm staying compact and holding my grab thx to video, and I'm way over rotating without effort so 5's are coming as soon as I nut up.
Sucks about the shoulder, hopefully it's better soon! I've had my share of shoulder injuries and it wasn't fun. Yeah I've got a new riding buddy out here who's a bit of a park rat, so he's forcing me to spend more time in the air. It's exactly what I need to sack up and start hitting the kickers again! This year I insist on spinning more.
