Jump

Jump, named after first A-Basin President Larry Jump, is a great trail out in West Zuma. It has the steepest pitch in Montezuma Bowl. To access the area, ski out the Zuma Cornice. After making the small uphill climb, slide Southwest a few hundred more feet. When the cornice drops super steeply to your left you have arrived. This trail faces Southeast and can be a temperamental with the sun so choose your timing wisely. It is one of my go to runs on a powder day.

Notice how he says to make the small uphill climb. Please don't drop in before it and traverse the face of the slope.

It does get cranky.

Speaking of jumps, what's the deal with the terrain parks? Is tree line ever going to be set up? Lots of people would come in the spring of you set up something that's somewhat legit
