It is no fun if your dummy can’t make it over the jump. Here are some suggestions from the experts:
- Heavy – the weight limit is 300lbs (including water or other weight for fun).
- Low – the weight needs to be low so it doesn't tip over as it nears the jump
- Base – have a sturdy and stable base. It should be at least 4’ square (but not more than 8’ wide). The base should provide about 6” clearance so it can go over snow. Screw into base of skis/snowboards up into the base. Don’t try ski boots, just screw the skis to a base.
- Forward – just like ski instructors say, pressure forward. For your dummy, make sure the weight is towards the front so he does not spin down the in run and crash before hitting the jump.
- Aerodynamic – to keep some speed into the jump.
