Default Hiking a Jump

I was considering hiking the kicker at Snow summit the next time i go up and i was wondering if anyone has hiked a jump before, and if so are there any "rules" to hiking a feature since i have never done it before. I know that hiking a jump is much more work than a jib, but i'm prepared for that and i'm in pretty good shape, so i don't think i will get too tired.

I have been riding at night, and so i hate the lift rides cause it is freezing so i figure if i am hiking i won't get cold at all.

Thanks in advance
Too Fast!

Just get off the to the side of the trail as fast as you can to avoid having to walk more, then unstrap and just walk up the hill along the treeline so you aren't in the way of anyone. Just stay out of the way and people won't complain. It does get tiring though, mroe so than you think.

You could try it but I'll bet it will only be once. Just stay out of the normal path of travel and make sure you are as visible as you can be at all times.

PS don't try jumps when you have jelly legs.
