Definition: A kicker is a steep jump made of snow and designed to launch a rider high and far. Kickers vary in size from small, homemade jumps to huge, professionally made features in terrain parks. Bigger kickers allow riders more air time to practice maneuvers or admire the view from the air.
Pronunciation: ˈkɪkər
Also Known As: jump
Examples:
We are building a kicker in the backyard to practice our 360s.
