they're planning to build the biggest ramp/kicker of all times, using 50.000 cubic meters of snow.
location: ski jumping stadium of garmisch-partenkirchen, germany. they hope to achieve a world-record of airtime (about 4 secs or something)
they'll also use air cushions, so no one gets hurt...
this is snowboarding's attempt to make up for the fact that skiers have been going WAY bigger than them for years now. i'm not hating on snowboarders (some of my favorite riders are snowboarders), but we've been going much bigger than them since Candide stomped Chad's. if Candide could hit that fucker, he'd show everyone what's up.
if its really 240 feet and like a steep up i kinda have a feeling its gunna end up being like when david benidict tried to do that step up in 91 words for snow in whistler and it just wasnt possible to clear like a table, it is made to be like a hip too but idk
would be sick to see candide hit that. and about mads jonson in hemsedal norway. that was last years world record table jump. he did a 57!metre long frontside 360 over the 40m long table. broke his wrist on second attempt. thats like 170 feet long and no "airbags" beneath. respect. Gonna be cool to see the jump in germany though, even though it doesnt look like 240 feet.
