First park jump I ever hit:
I was probably like 11 or 12 at the time, I had been skiing for like 6 years already at that point so I could ski most runs without too much trouble. But the park was just this massive intimidating place where snowboarders would hang out so I never went there.
I had a friend who skied park, so I decided I'd go into the park with him. I wanted to hit a jump so he told me to go for the small one and not go too fast. Having no idea what I was doing, I pointed it and hauled ass into this tiny kiddy killer, flew off it riding the back of my skis, sent it to the gucci plateau and landed flat on my ass. My friend came down laughing, told me it was awesome, helped me get my gear back together and after that it took me a while before I was willing to hit another jump haha.
