SPT comes and helps build the course along with the home mountain's builders. So, instead of just three to four guys shaping jumps and installing rails in a two-three week period, you got an extra two or three along with SPT's own cats.
So, when you still have to drop two rails in at 10 p.m. the night before the practice sessions, it goes a bit smoother to say the least.
Also, by no means is SPT designing the course because it's all a group effort. They have their own rail (urban down last season) that gets put in, but everything else is open for discussion. They def put their input in and see how it'll work and in the end, it's a nice collective agreement on what's best for the course and will have the best vibe among the athletes.
Hopefully this year the weather cooperates a bit more !
