Mr.BishopYou'll be way short on speed. To really have a decent jump you need a ton of speed.
SirBucklesI think I could set up something with bungee cords to sling myself out and onto the stairwell. Do you think it could at least work on a rail?
dangler2470Yes OP you'll probably too much speed to be prepared for a couple speed checks
Mr.BishopI always wanted to up the ante on my backyard setup and build a jump. My dad suggested investing a few bucks and actually buying scaffolding.
If you got a couple of sections of that you could build a wicked drop tower. THen make your jump a super kicky BMX style jump and bam you're gold.
Mr.BishopOh yeah you'd be fine for a rail for sure.
I mean you'll have to try it and see what happens. Bungee could work, but you'd have the problem of airing over the stairset if you got too much speed.
SirBucklesWell what I think I would do is build a ramp off the stairs that leads down onto the jump. It would basically be one continuous pile of snow until the jump. Down the stairs, merging with the patio then the jump would probably be at the edge of the patio leading into the yard.
SirBucklesThis isn't my picture but I think it could look a bit like this
