If someone can point me in the direction of a crail-grab trick tip vid for tomorrow please do!

I guess it's easy enough, pop and grab the nose with both hands while boning out the tail?

Crail isn't a double handed nose grab or a cross rocket. Back hand to the nose.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Like this guy says.

Here is an appropriate graphic



Any updates from on the hill? I was hoping tomorrow or Thursday was going to be the best day, but it looks like the storm might be petering out?
