and the parks didnt seem to be as bad as everyone's been complaining about. pretty decent setup in the main park by the pipe (i always forget the names for all of them), except that i overshot the second jump by a mile every time i hit it. the two jumps over by shooting star were by far the nicest hits I've seen during the winter at Hood in a while... and the mini-park on that run leading down to the base on skier's left from Mt. Hood express was pretty fun too. All in all not too shabby... however, I think that the best idea would be to consolidate a little bit and have one or two really polished parks instead of six mediocre ones.
They for sure had fixed things up quite a bit by the time I had left Oregon. Park crew has been doing a very nice job of grooming everything and basically just maintaining the park. I think by Spring, when the Vista and Cascade parks are up, things have the potential of being very good.
Yeah the parks have been getting better... and other other day when i was in the HRM park a prak crew guy asked what we thought of the jumps and what they need to do to change them.. i thought that it was awesome that they cared what we thought of the jumps. i think they are going to start stepping it up!
