A new jump line! - Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums
I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

A new jump line!

Posted 02-03-2013 at 08:10 PM by Donutz

Yeah, that's right. That's what I'm saying! I got up to Seymour this morning and after the standard two runs down from Mystery, I decided to check if there's anything new to be seen. I did a run first through Mushroom, and discovered that they've build up the rollers and added a hip jump. OK, but not riveting. They've built up the rollers in the beginner park line as well, and cleaned up the table-top/hip-jump track. No change on the two boxes and the rail, though.

On my second run, I went to check out the small jump that I was hitting last weekend. It's still there, but I discovered below it a whole new line of jumps. Awesome. There's a roller, then a couple of small (10-15 ft) jumps, then a table-top. It took a few tries to get through the whole line at one time, but I eventually got it, also adding the quarter-pipe wall after the first jump.

On that subject, I tried the advice that I got from Snowolf on the quarter pipe, and abracadabra, turns out it works there too. First time I tried it I did an almost completely effortless ally-oop. Of course I cratered a whole bunch of attempts after that, but that's pretty typical.

Anyway, important thing is the jump line. Undoubtedly the park crew will change it up a few times (they seem kind of easily bored that way) so it's going to be a major part of my snowboarding day for the next while.
