Im going out to snowbird and alta the second week of march and I was looking for some tips on were the best place to build a bc jump at snowbird is. I have already been to alta so I know that place pretty well but any extra help will be apreciated.
yeah at snowbird there really arent that many great places to build a jump out of bounds...if you go up the road to alta mountain across form alta(flagstaff) has some good stuff along with grizzly gulch...which the road just dead ends into. park is cool somedays
There are some cat tracks across minear basin, we were just launching off those, you could definetly build a kicker and then gap it. I'll be at the bird in a week and a half, it will sure beat midterms.
If you want to go inbounds at Alta ride supreme all the way up and take the traverse out to Catherine's area go all the way out till you see a wide open field that is steep and has tons of snow great spot hit it myself also if you ride up the chair that goes off the side of the mineral basin and stay to the left tons of spots with little trafic
IM there now!.. Its AWSOME!
Just came back from a hike, fresh powder!!
But.. the snow is out to much, and the snow is getting heavyer :( thats shit!
Oooowh well, If u whanna build a bc jump, why go to snowbird? just hike to grizly gulch
1. Its free 2. Its a famous place for jumps ITS AWSOME! 3. well, if u r lucky u might bump in to some pros that can teach u some.. Tanner was there 2 days ago.
ArmadaBC gave some good advice where to build an inbounds kicker. I usually build a kicker at the spot he described in Mineral Basin. There are a bunch of little roll overs there that make for good kickering and no one seems to go there to ruin your work.
Yes that guy was rigth about ArmadaBC being right.... Catherines area is pretty sweet if you hike far enough...... i have bad memory so i dont know names of runs and stuff.... but just go to where u have to hike up a lot....lollol... less people
I think there may be a shuttle that runs from little to big cottonwood. Either that or you'll have to take a transfer somewhere. I've seen the shuttles running but have only ridden on one from bird to alta.
Another good place to build a kicker is at Brighton. You can buy a 'one-ride' ticket for about $10 and head up the Millicent lift. Take one of the gates out of bounds and do your BC jibbin' there. Be careful because it is out of bounds and not patrolled.
the snowbird park was sick.....the flat down box was awesome...in my profile i have a vid of a friend and i skiin in hte snowbird park...u cna see whats in it
