You huck it and hope for the best. See what happens and adjust what you do. If you're lucky you have a friend watching that can give some advice. That variable is what gives us our style and keeps us from looking like gymnasts on a trampoline. Unlike a trampoline the conditions are never the same. Relying on muscle memory is never going to be enough.

Did it for the first time today.
To start let me say it was BEYOND fun!
I did not hurt at all too land even if you landed perfect. I did some laid out backflips and landed perfect and rode off the back of the bag.

On a slightly different note, how are the conditions up there at Camelback this weekend? Thinking of heading up early in the week. Thanks!

First try at Backside Double Rodeo 900 (snowboarding) - YouTube bit more footy.
Conditions have varied. Yesterday was beyond icy but today was loose granular and packed pow in some places.

Haha! Another nice vid!

Thanks for the conditions report. Hopefully they'll be able to have the guns on tonight..

Just as an opinion I would wait until next weekend to go out. Sunday is usually pretty calm and has the best conditions of the weekend.

Thanks, Cheo. I prefer to go weekdays (less crowded). If I go up on a weekend day (like I did last weekend), it's for the evening anyway.

Mid week it's forcast to be warmer, so I was thinking of getting up there before that happens.
