yea that may of helped. but they where to busy riding aswell. haha. it sucks they took everything down. i drove past the new lift in the lot and next to it were all the rails, it sucks i was gonna try and sesh up here tomorrow since im up till monday
i pretty much thought it sucked. I was spoiled by the boulder mayday rail jam. I wacked my nuts and knees twice on the rainbow (its monday and i still can't walk), got snowraped hardcore, and couldn't land shit on any of the rails cuz they were tilted as hell. plus everyone was doing gay trains and it made me mad. I'll make a lil video of the day tho once my anger fades
Ya that was me. it was fun, its just that i suppose my standards weren't met cuz the mayday railjam at boulder destroyed Windham in terms of funness. The tilted rails made me mad and the gay trains every fifteen minutes made me wanna club a kitten
OK so heres the deal
THE WHINDAM RAIL JAM ON MAY 27 SUCKED!!!!!!!!!
all the rails were crooked and they wouldent let u hike 1 rail u had to hike the whole hill and wait in a hudge line 4 ur turn>>>>> they were too many rails on not enough snow so riding out switch was fregin scarry as hell>>>>>>> the landings could'nt have been any more beat....the whole train thing was total crap
so basically whe WHINDAM RAIL JAM SUCKED!!!!!!!
^what the fuck are you talking about? it was skiing in may so ofcourse it wasnt going to be a perfect setup, but it was still good. i was just seshing the down box for most of the day so i didnt have to hike the whole thing. they took out the small yellow rail near the landing so you could go switch, and the trains just helped clear out like 50 people in a minute.
And I don't think anyone should be saying "what do expect in may" because it wasn't the snow that made it a shitty rail jam, it was shitty because they chose the worst rails, and started bitching that you had to hike the entire course not just one hit
hmm, lets see 7 features set up with a little wait in the lines, (and you didn't have to hike the whole thing every time) or only 2 possibly 3 of our best hits, and have long ass waits for them. cause honestly the large rainbow could span the width of that snow patch, and a flat down would of taken a shit load of snow. so don't bitch, just be thankfull you skied in may, and had a good time, if you didn't well. cry, i know a lot of people enjoyed it
the reason you couldnt hike 1 feature was because you would be on the landing of the rail behind you "in everyones way," not because they were trying to be dicks. and i liked the trains because there would be like 50 people uptop waiting and then the train went and then you were the only one up there. i thought it was fuckin sweet
Just because Ben is a newb on NS that doesnt mean he has no idea whats he is talking about. I know he is a good skier and he was already at a May rail jam, that he had a great time. So maybe in comparing the two Whindhams sucked compared to the one at Big Boulder. Because at Big Boulder we had a lot more room and snow the Whindham, features were spaced perfect, and we hiked whatever feature we wanted.
