Default Learning cork 540, rodeo 540?

Ok so this season I really want to progress. Right now I can do 360 (any kind of grab) off about 30fters, backflips, etc and I feel that the next thing to learn would be cork 540 and rodeo 540. I have a good idea on how to throw them since I can do them on my trampoline, but where's the best place to try them. I live in the city (Toronto) and there is no places like Woodward near me with foam pits and stuff. I learned my backflips on the golf course next to my house but I don't think it would be good for any bigger tricks. Would my best/only option be an air bag then? Or if you know of any places close to Toronto?

Yeah, best place apart from airbags and foam pits is to just do it on snow on a powder day.

Build a mini powder jump and try some corks into soft powder landings.

Where I ride there are not many airbags or stuff like that around so the only option is to build a jump somewhere, gather some snow in one spot and just try... if you know you won't fall straight on your head it's safe. And from the list of tricks you told, looks like you know what you are doing.
