i'm heading up to VT this weekend for r2r on saturday and then skiing somewhere sunday. Of okemo and stratton, who's got jumps up right now, how big, and who's park is better? anyone who's ridden there recently and cares to shed light on what features are out, would be awesome.
neither. go to mount snow if you want jumps. idk what stratton has but i can tell you okemo has minimal jumps (a 5 footer, a 10 footer, and a 15 footer) then some rails (flat box, down rail, flat-up-flat, small rainbow.) stratton i heard has jumps, but mount snow i know for sure has good features (check out the carinthia parks page on www.mountsnow.com for pics and shit. hope this helps.
the thing is, i can ski free at stratton or okemo. I'd go to mt snow if i couldnt get the others free. Also on sunday okemo is doing discount lift tickets for bringing in canned goods, so the others coming with me who don't get free skiing could still ski relatively cheap. I know this time last year stratton had two decent jumps (not very big at all, but still pretty fun) and i was hoping they'd have something similar this weekend.
okemo's prime mid season and can be fun, but i went the other weekend and its nothing special quite yet.... Dunno if stratton's holdin it down, but mt snow is where its at and its worth the money.. I can ride okemo and stratton free and i still think i'd shell out for snow. Now prime january/ febuary that's a different story.....
I went to Stratton on Sunday. They had 3 jumps on the smaller park. They were certainly fun, but nothing too exceptional. I'm headed up to Okemo this Sunday for cheap skiing, so we'll see how that is. Anybody else know anything?
i was at stratton today. the park was nothin special, they had 2 jib parks
one park had a 20' flat box to 10' double barrel or 10' box to a flatbar and the other had a couple flat rails, a fun A frame box, flat box. a couple little kickers.
anyone know how the park is going to be this weekend?
