Do jumps at breck or keystone get icy
everyone on the east coast knows what an icy jump is like. its shitty. to anyone who's jumped at breck or keystone, or anywhere out west, compared to east coast ice, does a west coast park ever really get icy?

not really man. the park crews at both mountains do one hell of a job keeping them in tip top shape. if the weather is nice out, the jumps are perfect and they're pretty dam good the rest of the time too. that's 2 years of riding at both places, so i think i can speak pretty confidently on it
thats so sick. i just watched alex schlopy's edit and every jump looked damn near perfect. i'm lucky if i get one good jump with a decent landing in a full year, and i got to a pretty solid east coast mountain (sunday river).

^can u not have a confederate flag icon, america is not the confederate south
i think the only time when they get icy is in the early spring when it is warm enough outside to start melting the snow and get it watery but then it gets below freezing at night and then freezes it into ice, but i think their park crews do a pretty bang up job of salting the jumps, and just keeping the park in good shape
yea your icon is really annoying. Pretty much everytime I got skiing there is ice on teh landings of rails and boxes mostly boxes just from people hitting them and stopping right after.
yea ur icon's kinda low
but yea im on the east and its no fun landin on ice, but whenevs the conditions are nice and the landings are good, i can hold a bad landing really well, probably cause im used to having to adjust on ice, kinda like the fact that a lot of racers that are sick are from the east cause they have to practice on ice rinks half the time, so they get really good on their feet.
rail's at keystone tend to get beat to fuck over by the medium jumpline, but jumps are always good.
Son of a bitch, I'm sick of these dolphins.

not usually, but sometimes. not often i guess.
ice does not exist out west. their definition of ice is our definition of machine groomed packed powder.
if i was santa claus, theyd call me michael ranaclaus.

yeah emo fuck your icon...
but yeah im so used to shredding ice that it doesnt even bother me anymore... i kinda it enjoy it actually...makes things more gnar. especially when you have no edges... its a fun little challenge...
if only your veins were filled with oil, the world would rush to your rescue...
ice definitely exists out west, just isn't as common. I've only skiied keystone one day but the snow was real nice, although the landings of a couple boxes did get prettty icy.
clownschool, get learned.
eheathmt (3:22:19 PM): why would you get up at 5am to ski 12 inches?
bobaburg (3:22:45 PM): umm
