It's only late August but preparations are in full swing for the 09-10 ski season. For those of you haven't heard, we are currently expanding our terrain parks. The advanced park on Lookout will have a line of 3 jumps this season along with a collection of advanced rails and urban features. The bigger expansion will be in the new BoneYard Park. Riders will be able to access this park at the bottom of Nanny's Nob and use 3 different lines of intermediate boxes, rails, rollers etc. We have decided to remove the mountain cabins this year so the Bone Yard Park will be expanded all the way to the bottom of the hill and end up at the base of the zero chairlift. Expect big things from the Welch Village Parks this year. We realize that because of the new Back Bowl last season, our terrain parks were a huge dissapointment. We will make up for it this year. Mark your calanders now for a rail jam on Saturday, Nov. 14. Whether we are open or not, there should be enough snow for some rails, music, and prizes...stay tuned! Snow-making is only about 9 weeks away!
