Default Building a snowboard jump?

so tomorrow here on long island were getting 8-12 inches of snow, and i was jw if this would be enough snow to build a jump to do front flips off of because i won't be able to see a mountain for awhile and last time i left one i was so close to landing it, any opinions are welcome

Definitely enough snow to make a jump, just need a good hill. Build it up, pour some water on it if needed, shape it, and try your tricks. I suggest making a big pile of snow for the landing if you're doing inverts. This is exactly how I learned to do backflips.

right now, go 'find' 3 pallets and some other scrappy lumber....2 will be the skeleton of the jump, one is the landing. build a thing (rickety is fine), let it get snowed on overnight. pile some more snow all around it. get a friend to hit it first....shoot video
