Im going to vail(and maybye keystone) and i need some info on parks plz!
i wanna know how the vail goldenpeak park is and i wanna know how the vail lionshead park is too. like how big of jumps? rails? boxes? pipe not icy/good conditions?
same with keystone...
im more of a jumper than rails, so i have to go from like intermediate park jumps to beginner area park rails, so thats why i wanna know everything about intermediate mostly.
oh ya and this is for easter week the week before easter, like saturday i think is easter so im saying like mon-fri before saturday
As of last weekend Keystone's park is better but Vail's park is still pretty good. But if you're gonna go somewhere solely for park I'd go to Keystone because its been pretty warm and you wouldn't be doing a whole lot of skiing outside of the park because the snow isn't that great.
keystone, vails park isn't well kept or very big. biggest jump is maybe 35-40. keystone is way better for park (breck is the best though) and it would be stupid to pay for vail unless we get snow that week. you don't go to vail for park
does anyone have a discription of beaver creek park? i heard it was pretty good...like im ok at park but good enough to be in the big parks, and i think beaver creek and keystone are best for me, but can soemone tell me what beaver creek park is like? like what rails and size jumps.
theres no pictures at all on the beaver creek web site so i cant get an idea
I hated that park. They have some kind of interesting rails but not much of their stuff is that awesome. They have 3 jumps in the "big" park, about 15-20 ft. Problem is you have to start about 30 yards above the drop in point just to get over them. Its set up really wierd. And the mini parks are just plain horrible.
thats my 2 cents
Beaver creek park jumps are 30-60 ft, verified by measuring tape. However it takes a long time to lap the park, and the pipe is hit or miss. Vails terrain park lift is super fast but the jumps are nothing special. Keys jumps are rockin but everything else, including the rails this year is meh.
