anything goes! spine tranfer would be too fun, and something one can rarely do in 'nature'

john doe They work best at the start of a park where there is a left side run and right side run. And if you shape the uphill part right it can also be a hip transfer.

Our local place did something like that, on a much larger scale, last year. The only difference is there was about 3 foot of flat at the top. It was so much fun. Sucks they didn't build the same this year.

Exactly, I have been suggesting that. The idea emerged when we were at a nearby place where the groomer left a little spine on each side of the piste where one could jump/spin/make lots of fun stuff on and off the piste.

We do not have a ton of room either. There were three total and only like 15 feet tall.

The first hit also had a jump carved into the backside of the berm for gaining speed for subsequent hits since our park does not have a ton of pitch.
