One night 3 of of us decided to just do it, go full tilt off the ramp. The first two chickened out and ditched, my turn came and I just held it steady, I couldn't see anything about halfway down due to snow blowback so I just closed my eyes, relaxed and all of a sudden, whoosh, total silence, in the air. We landed nicely and I still couldn't see anything so I ditched it. But yeah, some of those rides are unforgettable.
