Jumps

Full review

Probably the best place you'll find in Ohio to ski/ board. That said, for boasting the "Best Park in the Midwest" I think their jump line is awful. Not the kickers, but the knuckles. Knuckles should be rounded and the pitch of the landing should match the whip of the jump. These are foreign concepts for the Mad River crew. They build massively over whipped kickers and long, sharp knuckles without much runup. Their landings are shaped more like quarter pipes than a rolling knuckle. Overshoot by a marginal speed and you will land flat. Catch knuckle and you will bounce one time and then land on the flat. Rails are good though (probably because they don't require shaped landings). I've gone to Mad River for years and the only hittable jump they ever make is for their Big Air Contests. Also expensive on weekends.
