    that second jump at antons is pretty shakey...speed has to be perfect for it which means you have do completely stomp the first

    Re: terrain parks

    yeah i was down at high noon park last weekend.

    snapped myself on the first jump, took off all wrong and landed soft but at a funny angle on my ass. i think i fractured my tail bone, going in for xrays tomorro lol. (im never going to a terrain park again without impact shorts) well at least until im real real good lol.

    but that didnt stop me, heaps of fun. they had the table open few c bars etc. but after cracking my ass i spent more time down at the merittes jumps i think it is and back country natural made jumps =D (softer snow to land on if you fell haha)

    oh, and I got a little creative with that shot and gave him his own cover! (you'll probably notice that the text is mostly ripped from previous year ASM's)
