What more can you do then rope off the entrance making a pathway to enter the park and putting up huge warning signs to get all of the gappers out of the park?
I took a trip today to a hill 2 hours away, usually happens once or twice a season, to get away from my 64m verticle home base. I was so stoked on ridding a better park, and actually getting some "big mountain" ridding in, actually getting my ski on edge.
Anyways, once we get into the park, (enterance is a fence on the left and right side of a big roller, with a huge typical warning freestyle skills req. etc sign that took up a good half of it) we cruise through the first half, traffic free. Once we make it to the second section, its flooded with rentals. I don't get it. Can people not read? Fuck. Or is it just way to damn cool to go off the side of a kicker into a feature, land and eject from the thrilling 1 foot drop they just hit, yard saleing. Then again, there were a group of about 10 snowboarders sessioning a feature half way down. There is no problem with it if its done right. Of course me and my friends are at the top, waiting for a clearing. Once one opens up, i go. Hit the first feature, prime. Then i see the group of boarders. As im carrying my speed into the second feature, a train of 4 boarders just jump in and totally cut me off. Not 1 looked up the hill to see what was comming. I stop, say "THANKS!" one guy looks back and laughs.
I just dont get it, and there isnt much you can do. Parks are created to bring in revenue, because they know its an attraction. Financially, why would a resort limit rules etc, to prevent stuff like this from happening, when common sense says it will result in lost business?
Im stuck, because regardless (As what ive come up with) they turn everything into finance, as understandable, they are running a business, and there is no way to approach new ideas, (once again, of what i can come up with, thats why im asking you guys).
Im just pissed right now.
