Amen to that, Meckel. Coming from the east coast (Ontario), I can totally relate. There are a lot of bad attitudes in the park and dudes just trying to show each other up instead of focusing on their own riding. I find that out west though, there is much less of this attitude. It also seems like people out west don't jib quite as much, and are more air-dogs. But yeah nothing worse than bailing and hurting yourself, only to hear some jackass laughing out loud at you.

meh If I'm rolling with my buddies in the park and we crash we don't see it as a jackass thing to laugh, Shit happens. You gotta just blow it off and laugh about it. Infact most of the time when I f up a trick I laugh at myself.

yea but your buddies dont do it to be condescending, its one thing for it to be playful laughter but its different when some spoiled little rich kid on skis laughs at you for trying something new. Not that it hurts my feelings if I ever biff and get laughed at by some snotty little kids it frustrates me a little, even if I'm laughing at myslef at the same time.

oh MAN!!! That is a great example of how to get your ass kicked in the park. If that happened to me, and I got injured as a result of someone fucking me over and chilling out in the landings, it would be the worst way to go out. Its one thing to smash yourself up, but when its the fault of someone else it really grinds my gears.

just look out for those annoying skiiers. they love to go side to side the whole width of the trail. and if u have 50 of them at the same time, then things get physical haha
dont go down black diamonds if ur too slow and look before you turn. dont bite off more than u can chew pretty much. stick to ur own level and dont ruin the fun for others

another rule is that jumps infront of rails and boxes are to get onto boxes and rails!!!! not to hit the side and do your gay little tricks. i see the sides of jumps get wrecked all the time due to this. If you want to get air hit the jumps, kickers and table tops made for that.

Yeah this is the thing that annoys me the most. these little skiers think they can ride these very advanced hills and then all they do is pizza or w/e all the way down the hill from side to side.

Please, if you aren't at an advanced level do not try to go down these runs! leave them for people that are at that level.

Hey,

First season actually trying to do some stuff in the park, normally just tried to avoid it.

Been good learning on the rails and boxes and getting used to a few of the jumps,
Quick question which I was unsure about, the size of jumps? how are they measured? like when someone says its a 30ft jump does that mean the whole jump including ramps is 30ft or the jap jumped is 30ft?

Thanks,

Im pretty sure its measured from the lip to the end of the knuckle where it is ideal to land.
