i just emailed the park designer of sunday river + owner of Snow-Grind, Josh Lempert and asked him what was up for next year:
Yes I have alot of plans for the 06 season, the budget for new rails and
boxes is triple of what we had last year so we will have longer custom boxes
and some crazy unique rails. There is alot of talk about a new intermediate
park on the bottom of 3-D. Sounds like we may get our rope tow back from the
tubing park and have it at the pipe.
I have to agree with you about Loon and WV. I love riding there. One of our
problems at SR is that we only get trails sections to build parks and they are
short due to so many crosscut. Loon and Wv are owned by Booth Creek. They
figured it out a while ago that parks and pipes are the future and have key
people pushing there programs from the top down and giving the mts the tool
they need to make it happen. At ASC it is a different story we are still
trying to get them to realize the benefits of having a solid park program.
They have recently put Elia Hamilton as the Director of freestlye for the east
coast, so that is a step in the right direction. There have been alot of
roadblocks to get where we are now, but the good news is it will only continue
to grow and get better every season.

its gould academy, in bethel. People hate on it cause its known for the racing program but they have a legit slopestyle/pipe program also And a mini park in the back of the school. mostly I just wana session park, film + chill though. Holderness seemed pretty sick too but my mom wouldnt let me go cause of the religous stuff w/ priests teaching classes and shit.

Ski. Eat. Sex. Sleep. Ski. What else is there?
Dude, joke's totally on them, you should make a t-shirt that says 'all you fools suck' and on the back it can say 'I rule coz T-dawg said so' and yeah, you'll be rockin it shibby, new steeze brah, wikkid! ~PhattTim, our savior
fuck that thats what they said last year. Its not the fact that they are lacking the supplies its the fact that they are too lazy to set shit up. We had the most snow last year and they didnt bother to set shit up. Maybe it will be different but I am not sure.
people don't hate it because it's known for it's racing program, but the hate more comesfrom the lack of a freestyle program
now if i paid as much as it cost to go there, i would excpect toop notch coaching, which it lacks in freestyle
but they may have changed since i have been there a few years ago, but i doubt it since it's been going downhill ever since really
but have fun anyways man, you still get to ski everyday like you wanted
Jeff, why dont you just drop your shit against gould. You're just pissed because when you went freshman year you had no friends and you didnt like Yingling. Get over it, and stop talking shit about Gould and telling people how much it sucks.
EastAR5- It's sick, im finishing my freshman year right now, you'll love it. I live next to Josh Lempert too dogggg.
anyone who skis at sunday river and has some skillz PM cuz i'm gonna be over there alot this season filming with my buddies and we need a couple more peole..if we choose you we will give u a part in our vid and you'll get a free copy, plus have a biography on our soon to come web site.
