it was after abasin, at least that's when i went last year. id say just pick a rail at abay to hike and spend your afternoons doing that when the lips on the jumps are mashed potatoes like today. and the park there is fun but small, the jump was like 15 feet last year, and everything is hiking.
i just went to aspen to skate and talked to some kid there. theyre gonna be open on weekends for a lil bit. lift access and all. any pass holder from any mountain can ride for 20 bucks, he didnt know if boxilla is happening though.
Anyone going to hood this summer, but not too stoked on the drive? Theres a place in MT opening up soon with what sounds like a decent park. I think I'll be heading there instead of crowded, expensive hood.
hoods not that expensive if you know how to play it, just a long drive out, but there's lots of camping and you can clip tickets off the racers pretty consistently. what's the place in Montana? got any info?
Last summer we just drove up one of the residential roads on snomass mountain and found a service road to park on and hiked in. There were camps but we went on the days that there were none (not sure what those days are now). Since we didnt take the lift we didnt have to pay and no one seemed to mind. We just camped elsewhere on the mountain. It was a blast. Thats all the info I have, sorry hope it helped.
bad news, i sent them an email about it, this is what i got back:
"Thank you for your interest in Aspen/Snowmass. Unfortunately, the
glacier park is not open this summer due to the fact that we did not
have enough residual snowfall to operate the park in a safe manner."
