Jim Schneider, vice president of skier services at Steamboat Ski Area, shows the audience at Friday's Steamboat Bike Summit just how much air he got on one of his first rides down a jumps trail at the bike park in Whistler, British Columbia. Schneider spoke about Steamboat Ski Area's efforts to build a downhill bike park on the slopes of Mount Werner.
