think they'll listen? i just feel like I have to give them a few suggestions.
I have been going to Smuggs for a pretty long time now and this is, I think, my 6th season here. I feel like I need to make a few reccomendations to you guys though. Most of the freestyle population at Smuggs is heading to other mountains this year and I feel like I should let you guys know why. Last year the park was a little better than previous years but I really strongly believe that we need a park crew. The park crew would maintain the parks and change the set-ups often to keep the skiers interested and satisfied. Yes, last year there were some new features and every Saturday there was a Jam which was awesome but...the quality of the jumps and consistancy throughout the year just wasn't there. I feel and know that Smuggs needs a dedicated and knowledgable park crew to keep things in check. I saw somewhat of an effort of this last year but there were many times during the year where I felt like I wasn't getting my money's worth. Simple things like keeping the jump's launch angle and landing areas in check would greatly benefit the freestyle population. It would also keep us coming back year after year. Unfortunately, I am kind of tired of waiting and hoping for "next year to be better." Do you guys know what I'm talking about? I am really interested in this subject and would greatly appreciate a reply. It would make me think much more of Smuggs than I do right now. If you guys would like I will continue to make suggestions to let you guys know how this year go's and everything but that is a while aways. So for now please consider my proposal for this year. Honestly, I could just go to Stowe for a better park but I love the Smuggs atmosphere. That is why I'm giving you guys another shot before I move on to Stowe. Please don't brush this e-mail aside, use it as an opportunity to gain new insight as well as progress from previous years.
