i went to stratton 2 weeks ago and the park was skectchy at the least it was good but i think since we got all that snow they will open suntanner and will have a few more rails and jumps set up
so to awnser you question
i was there today and the park was sick, good conditions and the jumps were really nice. They were pushing snow and setting stuff up on suntanner, so it should be open this weekend. Looks huge from what I saw on the chair
only skied half day today, but suntanner was finished when i left, idk if they opened it though, i left at 12, but suntanner has:
all step downs
then a choice of a d-f-d with death kinks or urban down rail
choice of up gap down box, up down rail(40ft), then a roller coaster
choise of 20ft up rail, 20ft wall ride tall box comb, f-d-f mellow kinks 30ft
the park looks so nice, biggest park in the east probably, i mean a 5 jump line before christmas
To become old and wise...you must first become young and stupid.
They opened Suntanner around 1pm. Its pretty nice. Last jump is pretty big, landing is somewhat odd. First 2 are really nice, the third was closed off. Rails are all set up real nice. Much better than what they had going at this time last year, myself and LD will be shooting a fair amount over the next few days and have a nice lil edit for all of you.
I got out of work at stratton at 3 so I got to ski the last hour and it was mad fun. The dfd looks like death, didn't hit it, but the other rails were real smooth and fun. All the jumps were real goo too.
i went up today, left around 10:30 cuz they were grooming the parks and didnt feel like waitin around the fdf rail is set up horribly in my opinion, huge gap on, im not a fan of ride ons but the way they set this up is stretchin it a little, makes it pretty hard to trick cuz you have to go somewhat fast at it
damn shit was beautiful today, that 2nd jump is so fucking perfect. Lapping that all day long. Video to come eventually. You guys are gonna be so damn stoked when you see this shit! Downey was slaying today.
so, someone in my family had the brilliant idea of going to stratton this (holiday?) weekend. skiing sat, sun, and mon. from what i gather the park seems ok, but hows the crowds? i was up there Rails to riches weekend and the little park was good, apparently you needed a park pass? whats the deal with that.
yea park passes are a good idea for sure. i was looking for more like, how do i go about getting it. and do they have special hours for when they show the video?
friday night you guys are supposed to get something like 3-7" right?
Im not sure how much snow were supposed to get, Im actually going to NYC tomorrow. But, Im pretty sure they show the park video very frequently, basically all day, probably not after 2 or 3pm or something though.
ive been at stratton the past 4 days, the ses pass is easy to get, its a 5 minute video, you have to sign some shit, takes about 10 minutes depending on how many people are getting it, they do it about every 10-12 minutes, the skiing has sucked, everythings open but its all fake snow and ice and you cant get an edge in the snow, suntanner park is sick, rela nice jumpline with 4 kickers, first 2 are big, 3rd and 4th are fucken huge, launch you real high and far and are superfun cus the landings are all smooth, they have a rollercoaster box, dfd, fdf, downrail, flat down, wallride/box, up box gap to down box, and they shoudl be getten about 5 inches tonight
it is truly painful to hit the rails on suntanner. with the exception of the up rail and box/wall.
no landings at all and the rails are like 5 feet high at the ends. jumps were alright though.
all in all, great time. got a good amount of snow too.
