Mary Jane Bump Jamborees - Page 2

Speaking of the trees, how is coverage in there right now? My understanding is that it was thin a couple of weeks ago, and not much new snow has fallen lately.

Eagle wind is a little boney in spots, but seeing how windy that spot is, that may almost be a given. Lower elevation eagle wind is a little better.

For competition bump skiing, and lines/technique of the variety tball uses, I completely agree.

For what you'll be doing in camp - bring your 96's.

Edit - don't ask us, email bob what models/lengths you have and let him tell you.
