Big Air jump... ;)

We have a festival at my local slope that is normally a ski event, i know, skiing is for wimps...!!!

However this year they are running a 2 part festival, and one part of it is called INCITY

For this, the event is Ski and Snowboard, and they have built a jump in the town... On a bridge... Across a river...

Obviously, this is not jumping across a river, but on a bridge on the river, but it is really cool... And i thought pretty unique...

So i have a couple of pics and a video to see what people think, the event goes down tomorrow, so will post other videos as they become available...

It is pretty crazy, the town has a population of 25,000 and that is actually a main road...! As in from one side of the town to the other across the bridge...!!!

There is of course another bridge, but all buses etc diverted for the week while they built this... And funded by the town as well...!!!

It is pretty awesome i think...

So the only way to get milk and eggs is to nut up and hit the jump?

If only... They have another bridge for traffic, and you can actually walk under the jump on the footpaths still... Very well organised that is for sure...

It's in Kongsberg, a small town in Norway...

I have a family season pass for the slope there, not a huge place, small is how i would describe it personally, but very park orientated, and they have awesome teaching facilities by way of clubs...

Not sure so much about the ski side of it, but the snowboard club had 2 at the Sochi Olympics...!!! An injury for the girl in Slopestyle, and a 5th in SBX for the guy...
