    Yep behind Cruiser, skidoos take the competitors up to the top of Waimea (skiers left end) then down they come.
    Saw someone jump it last year after the official comp, BIG air

    Saw a boarder testing it maybe ten days ago from the cruiser lift. Massive jump, no tricks, but so very impressive to see in real life as opposed to on a DVD. Didn't see the landing as as trees got in the way. but when we went past the guy was calmly unstrapping and not a smudge of red on the snow. Must have been too tame because they made it bigger after that.
