Thanks, Cheo. I prefer to go weekdays (less crowded). If I go up on a weekend day (like I did last weekend), it's for the evening anyway.

Mid week it's forcast to be warmer, so I was thinking of getting up there before that happens.

Conditions have varied. Yesterday was beyond icy but today was loose granular and packed pow in some places.

On a slightly different note, how are the conditions up there at Camelback this weekend? Thinking of heading up early in the week. Thanks!

I did not hurt at all too land even if you landed perfect. I did some laid out backflips and landed perfect and rode off the back of the bag.

john doe You huck it and hope for the best. See what happens and adjust what you do. If you're lucky you have a friend watching that can give some advice. That variable is what gives us our style and keeps us from looking like gymnasts on a trampoline. Unlike a trampoline the conditions are never the same. Relying on muscle memory is never going to be enough.

How do you guy actually learn any new skills, are you just seeing and doing without really understanding the mechanics of it all?

eddiethebus airbags do seem to be more common in the euro zone, we have them indoors in the UK and at my local hill here in france. There good fun, the only time i've ever seem anyone really get hurt is when they didnt carry enough speed off the kicker to actually make the bag. They just fell of the backside of the kicker

My biggest problem with them is they tend the make the kicers narrow which makes spinning more difficult and they are artificially steep compared to 90% of park kickers as they dont want you travelling a distance. They just dont mimic most real life kickers very well.

I've never really learned very much off them
