only warm day i see in the forecast is Tuesday going in to the mid-30s but then dropping back to the teens next weekend looks cold and there's a chance for some more snow Monday & Tuesday... I'm thinking even if we get a little sleet/wintry mix on Tuesday that by next weekend the slopes will be OK again

Do it! And then let us know when we can come rife it!!! You're gonna need a drop-in maybe 6 to 8 ft tall I'd guess.

rode it today sounds ghetto but i have a trampoline i lifted my pinic table up to the trampoline you get a few good GOOD bounces on the trampoline then kinda transfer( hop)towards the table drop in and hit the box/
the box is only bout a foot tall and 8 ft long rode it all day but got bored after a while ( no one there)
i think u get more of a rush bouncing on the trampoline then hucking it for the drop in

yeah it does sound ghetto but I can totally picture what you're saying and it kinda makes sense. You could use the trampoline to practice airs I'd love to do that a few times!
