Lol, im from ontario, lol small place in toronto where the "mountains: have about 700 feet of vertical and the parks are nicer than that. Then again, with 700 or less vertical what other reason is there to drive for 3 hours.
I basically grew up riding Blue Mountain. First hill I boarded at was snow valley back in 1992. Ontario has a lot of people relatively close to the hills, so they have lots and lots of money for good parks. I remember hitting the 1/4 pipe and superpipe at Blue Mountain in the mid-90's and launching off some of the great jumps back then. Saw a guy break his board in half landing one. Plus there's a park chair which is great.
They honestly put the parks of the Canadian rockies to shame, but then again the entire mountain is a park in the rockies!
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.
Hey I resemble those remarks! I just conquered those last weekend
No idea why, the fucking box scares me. I should have hit them instead of reading about them (don't edge, watch your elbows, etc. etc.). But rode it and said, wtf, these are easy. Just don't fucking turn!
Im not sure how to measure jumps though. Is it how high, or how long? I think they were taller than 5 feet though. It seemed that way when I was in the air!
Reading this post angered me. Seriously why have you got people coming here to comment and slag this guy off because he doesnt hit these huge booters.
WTF is snowboarding about? to me its geting out there and having fun, this goes alongside pushing yourself and YOUR ability. He wants some advice on hitting a larger kicker than he has done before. What is this 'my jump is bigger than yours?'.
As for my advice i hit the largest kicker i've ever done for the first time in tignes 3 weeks ago. Was on the red run, about 7 ft high and 15ish ft flat-top. Much bigger than anything i've hit before. Scared me poopless but you just gotta overcome that fear, have confidence in your ability and hit it.
Sounds like you did it so props to you, progress at a rate you're confortable with and have fun
