About Water Ramps

Ramps are used as an acrobatic training tool for athletes to practice their spins and flips into a pool inside of having to land on a harder snowy surface for the first time. Our facility is located at Base 2 on Blackcomb Mountain. There are 3 jumps to choose from: Jump 4 is the beginner jump, Jump 1 is the “singles” jump (for single inverts) and Jump 2 is the “doubles” jump (for athletes going around twice in the air).
