Description

Ride down China Bowl on your way to Coyote, not long after passing the fumeral (you’ll know this by the smoke and smell of eggs in the air) there’s a large ridge where a nice hip forms right below a small tree island. Usually best as a hip this feature can also be great fun as a straight jump slightly further down the ridge. Very user friendly. Hittable in a number of different ways and snow conditions this is a killer feature that you can hit days and sometimes weeks after a storm.
