    For the Torstein Horgmos and Mark McMorris’ of the snowboarding world to be able to do what they do, they need to trust the terrain. When they go flying two stories into the sky, they need to know that they have the speed and lift to cover as much as a quarter of a football field on some of these Big Air jumps.
