I wish I could, although I can't find one anywhere on the hill's flicker. Here is the photosteam if you want to look for it, it's a "XL" jump in the line of two. Flickr: ski.wentworth's Photostream

I meant to take a picture today, but I forgot.

Well, if I were you I'd hit the jump if you see others hitting the jump. As others have advised watch the speed other people are hitting the jump and where they're dropping, how many speedchecks etc. Wear a helmet

Did I say that was the jump I said THAT jump was pathetic and then went on to describe what you're hitting. Reading comprehension 101 look into!

Then you should of used a paragraph break, or said "The jump in the picture you posted." "THAT" can refer to anything, no way for me to know what the hell you're talking about unless you tell me in some description. Besides the first sentence of your post, it was all about the one I wanted to hit, so I figured that "that" was also referring to the one I wanted to hit. No way for me to know otherwise. Writing descriptively 101 look into!

Aww is someone upset their mental prowess has been challenged after admitting that your testicles are the size of a gnats because you can't hit a fucking 5 foot jump. Maybe you shouldn't be in the park if you're scared of something 5 years out here would hit. Didn't realize I would have to go into such great detail to someone that can't even describe what the actual feature looks like or even post a picture of. Maybe you shouldn't be in the park there might be a ride on box that freaks you out.

Not that I'm trying to stir the pot, but I think you meant to say Should've or Should Have. Sorry, "should of" is just my pet peeve!

here are some pictures of the upper part of Golden Peak, one of the parks on Vail mtn. There are two other beginner parks on the other side of the mountain by lionshead village. They have 2-3 park crew that are in the parks on lionshead side all day long constantly raking features and riding the park to make sure it is ridable. Golden peak has cats on standby and 3 guys there all day long.....
