Last spring when the kb blog was up and running, there was a post which explained that kb would try to set up an alternative contest series. With the success of the race course for the snowboarders on crazy8’s, kb would try to have one for skiers as well as maybe a ski jump contest to see who could jump the farthest and a boarder/skier cross through the park.
I don’t know how well the long jump would work seeing as though some big guy in a speed suit with 200+ skis would obviously pick up a lot more speed than most 13yr old snowboards, but I still would be interested in these soft of events.
Also, does anyone remember when the park was over on twister and kb ran a weekly series of events which closed the park down on the weekends. Those events were before my time, but I recall reading on the site about how they had pro skiers come down and judge the finals.
They made a good amount of snow on Coal Chute this weekend, I would guess that with another 24 to 36 hours of cold air it would have been enough to open. Looks like another cold air mass is on the way and with it a better chance for significant lake effect. I would not rule out this weekend, but suspect it will be one more week. Who knows, the snow on coal chute was left in big piles and should hold up fairly well to the warm air and rain early this week. See for self here... http://kbski.broker1suite.com/aspx/default.aspx
Anyone here have any info about a rail jam at Fredonia on the 2nd. If holiday or KB were to open this weekend I would definitely go to either one of those, but if not I may head to Fredonia, that is if work does not get in my way.
