Yeah I know. A few times I wanted to hit the kickers at both parks and I chose not to b/c the landings were ice.
I have a feeling this season is going to be radical...

Good investment. I definitely feel for ya, Thats something I hope I never have to experience. A friend of mine hit a patch of ice 2 seasons ago and fell on his wrist... its still messed up to this day.
