    Paging Ian and Patrick

    what say If I come to the next meeting we bring up the idea of building several little booters on the less-travled trails? I was thinking Shanes and Goat or whatever that connector is and maybe some on Hard Guy?

    we can build them to the side or something so anybody can go around them if they want?

    Just a thought, not trying to cause any trouble here but some flowing jumps on the fast maybe wider sections would add a lot of fun................. you guys is the experts

    How big are you thinking? Something like a 2 foot tall kicker maybe 12-15 feet back from the start of a downhill seems like it'd be optimum for on trail jumping...

    Sounds like a good idea to me...

    Yeah like that, 2 or 3 or 4 feet or bigger with the right takeoff and landing. I was watching The Collective and Moreland was hitting these sweet jumps on a high speed trail, they weren't even that big, and was just sailing

    I like that idea. If you've been on super g at tamarack, you would see something similiar to what you are proposing. The alternate routes with small doubles or gaps would be sweet on a trail like hard-guy, which doesn't see much beginner traffic anyway. I'd be willing to put in some labor if something like that got through Swimba.

    Jah....Good luck with that....

    And the reason Morland was going so far, is because he is about Canada's best Dh'r riding on Crab Apple Hits at Whistler in that shot. Good luck trying to get that type of speed for any type of jump anywhere off of the side of a trail in the foothills. And the jumps are bigger than you think. They're just not 6' tall and kickers- just 3' tall and senders. Once you know the difference you might have a better chance at building them.

    yeah I really like that footage - so much flow. I do think I know the difference even though I have not built them. Kickers are for arc landings on the backside of another jump whereas senders are getting lots of distance and landing either on somewhat flat or slightly downhill landings. Is that corrrect?

    I think we could build something really cool in the foothills, and with all the speed you get on the foothills singletracks or doubletracks you don't think you could sail?

    I didn't mean illegally! let's ask RtoR to start talks about a new trail. That's what I am suggesting.
