Hahahha, this site does make me feel old. I wouldn't say I am "kicking it" just wanna improve, like you said. I am mostly a big mountain skier and do a couple of heli trips a year (in fact I am off to greenland in a week) but I like to fool around in the park on the off days. All I can do are 1's, crappy 3's, and grabs. As for the skis on a tramp, this photo was taken in a tramp centre here in Japan http://www.x-tech.co.jp/images/index01L.jpg
. I would go there to practice but it is a long drive.
