Hey i am just looking for ideas and picks of things to put into my miniature slopestyle course. the area i have has a slight hill and is fairly open.

Cereal bowl
wallride
dirt jumps
hitching post
Probably just should watch some Crankworx videos on Vital and make some things that look like the stunts at the events and just scale them for your riding ability and space

any on-off features that can have multiple entrance/exit options.

that thing at the end of crankworx colorado 2 years ago was cool. where you jump on, do a quarter and then jump off. a mini version of that would be cool.

figure out what you want to learn or practice and build something to get you going. like hand plant post between a double. pick soemting you can visualize.

yeah, that's a cool mini on-off set up!

Having a bit of a curved landing for the step up makes it run a little bit smoother, mine will hopefully have a flat drop at the end to learn stuff like 3's off drops and then a lip as well to allow you to pop off the drop a bit more

also, what about a trannied "deck" instead of just the plain old flat one? harder to make, but probably more fun...like a non-angled satellite dish, i guess.

The trannied deck really makes it flow much better. Having both would be ideal so you can train for both applications. Crankworx, Crankworx CO, Teva, and Quashqui all have had both types of step up, tranied and flat, being able to trick off of both is an important thing if you are into competing at slopestyle

Whatever you do, make it flow!

i've always wanted to see a drop wallride, it would be very tech, but that would make mini, better

if you have access to plenty of wood and a digger.....

- huge berms that lead straight into a features
- whale's tail
- wallride that splits in two...
a. the lower line that has a curve so it can lead into other features (another line)
b. the higher line is straight and includes a larger gap and a larger landing, which also leads into another line of features
(C. this would be one of the first features inorder to split the course up into different options)
- if you go with the wall ride separation, make a feature(s) that would link the two seperate lines back together
- plenty of hip jumps
- your run-of-the-mill dirt jumps
- have a hip log stand thing like in qashqui and bearclaw invitational
- MAKE IT UNIQUE!!!


i have a head full of ideas if you want some....
