cabdriverthey don't have to be perfect landings though. I've never seen the landing of a hip so beat up I was uncomfortable hitting it.
I mean, landings have to be pretty decent if you aren't trying to get sued. IF you aren't maintaining it and their are bomb holes and ruts everywhere and no records of maintenance that doesn't look so hot.
And the angle of them is wrong for a pipe cutter, at least if you want it to be super proper. Also you can groom them to an extent with a cat but it's risky. Depends on the height and the type of snow. It's not hard to spin out and fuck things up. Also in the spring or warm winter like we had this year good luck.
Parks need to be maintained, if you can't maintain a feature you can't build it. Even if you can, it might not be worth the time and resources to do so.
I love hips, I love 1/4s but they are a pain in the balls.
