You are officially the shit. Thanks a lot! Got any recommendations as far as parks go?
You can't deal with my infinite nature, can you?
im goin to saas fee 22nd of july :D any one hav a past experience of it? thanks
pretty good pipe
cold (in the shade)
the lift lines should be a thing of the past this summer cuz they built a park lift
questionable rails and kickers...
excellent snow b/c of the high altitude
go to les diablerets as soon as it opens. i got some pow in there on sat.
that's weird tignes normally stays open 365 right?
as far as parks go deux alpes and saas fee have a pretty good rep from my experience although saas fee is historically racer boy wonderland. i like tignes not normally the best park but there's lots to do i dunno i guess i know it so it's easy. there are a few more from that list that are good but i'll stick to what i know.
thanks michael, any idea how big the biggest kickers are? looking for something big to hit im fed up of ski rossendale dry slope!
maybe a decade ago.
that glacier is melting fast and the summer skiing in Tignes won't last for another decade, which is why they are shifting the focus to other summer activities.
the park in Tignes was miserable last year, however, change of plan this year the park is permanently moving to the top of the glacier so it could be pretty rad. And a lot less crowded than les 2.
I'd say Les 2 Alpes for rails & boxes, Zermatt for pipe, Austria for kickers, and Saas-Fee for freeriding. Zermatt has the altitude advantage, it never rains up there b/c it's ridiculously high.
thanks that really helped me out!
Gangsta as $HIT!
Fatal Films reprasent
Gosh that's hard to say. Sometimes they have huuge kickers (25m+) but sometimes they just have a couple of bumps without table/landing. It highly depends when you go.
22nd of July you will be arriving right after the Method/Demonium Shoot What U Got week and hopefully right around the Nitro Team week. So if you're lucky everything is in top condition.
sick also the saas fee ride takes place on that date, 22nd, so im hoping for the big air kicker to be made available to the public after so i can hit that as that seems pretty hefty
