Memory Lane - Telemark landing practice on ski jumps

Telemark racing includes a downward sloping jump, which is required you land in the telemark position. You immediately turn either left or right around a gate. Where can I practice tele landings?  This seems perfect!

I got like 20+ jumps in as the club kids went in when they were cold and I could do two minute laps. I did 5 on the one pictures on the left, but the smaller one to left of chair (not pictured) was more useful as the outrun was short allowing me to actually enter a carve turn right away. Plus I could do like 4 tele turns from the lift to the inrun, and once the kids packed it in, I could carry speed right into the inrun which is good telemark course simulation.
