Download-My-Appswould you have a way of measuring your speed even if you calculated it?
yungsteezeI actually have a friend with a radar gun. But I guess I'm probably being too technical about it because it wouldn't be an easy thing to figure out with maths lol
Northvansebdistance x gnar + trick = steeze
just go for it, you've probably hit 30 footers before, now it's just not in the park.
NinetyFourThis is the part in films where the rider gives a snowball a good toss from the lip, subtracts a few fucks so he doesn't have anymore fucks to give, then mans up and sends it. It's really a simple calculation if you ask me.
Skibumsmithsome equations you can use
to find the distance in the vertical direction you’ll fall:
y = y0 + V0 sin(θ)t - 1/2gt^2
Solve for time.
Plug ‘t’ into: x = V0cos(θ)t
to find the horizontal distance you’ll travel.
Make adjustments to your initial velocity and ramp angle using:
x = (V02/g)sin(2θ)
Calculate the length of your inrun.
mgh + ∫μkmgcos(θ)dx = 1/2mv^2
dx is how the angle of your inrun is changing with respect to x (so good luck calculating that)
you’ll also need to figure out the coefficient of friction between your skis and the snow
but you'd do better to just ask yourself where "would big air dave drop?" and then side step up 50 more feet from there.
TWoodsIt's just something you have to get a feel for. The hardest part when you build your first jumps isn't figuring out how fast you need to go, but how to build a wedge that isn't super awkward and terrible to hit.
