you don't have to live in a backcountry area to build a jump into pow.
i've built street set ups with a foot of fresh for the landings.
quebec received 3-4ft. of snow in one storm last year. find a grassy hill and build a wedge above it.
my first pow jump was in 1988 built with lunch trays and the top of a garbage can at my old school. we were landing in snow drifts almost 3ft. deep.
opportunity is everywhere.
