Stupid to try jumps? Any old folks out there?
Just started boarding recently, on my 10th time out I finally got the hang of turns decently comfortably. I can line up, follow narrow tracks and have been hitting very small jumps...
I still have alot of work to do to look like I'm comfortably doing this I think, and I'm sure my first few runs Thursday are going to be ugly looking until I get it back in my head how to do this, but I really want to traverse into hitting jumps.
I see these big jumps with landing hills below them, and REALLY want to go for it, but as I get older, I'm rather afraid that I'm going to snap my neck, back, leg , arm, wrist , etc.
Im just ok at crash landings, but at my size and height and age it's kinda hard...
Anyone just say screw it and go for it? What was the result?
The problem with our resorts:
TINY TINY jumps in between trees/snowmaking equipment, or BIG jumps with BIG gaps in between takeoff and landing. Nothing in between.
Should I abandon these thoughts?!?!?
