As part of the private pre-Olympic Pipe Camp the BAGJUMP has been set up at Cardrona Alpine Resort, the first time it has been used in New Zealand.

The 15m x 15m multi-chambered airbag set up by the Japanese national team is being used by German, Canadian, American and Kiwi riders practicing new freestyle moves and double tricks, valuable training in the lead up to Vancouver 2010.
