The Ramp and Airbag
The Obstacle Course
Athletes ski down the ramp, launch off the jump and land on the airbag. Athletes must qualify inversion tricks on the trampoline, then practice them 50 times on the airbag before their 5 qualifying jumps. Once the inversion is qualified by the coach then the athlete would then be permitted to take the trick to snow.
Athletes develop skills on the 2 trampolines. They develop body awareness in the air and must perform tricks safely and accurately before taking the tricks to the ramp and airbag.
The obstacle course is set up to develop athlete endurance, strength and agility.
