This 09-10 season in the Terrain Park we will increase are progression features along with are proline features. New jibs including new boxes rails large and small will be added to the lineup of our old refurbished features. A full scale progression park will be added to the mix (excluded from the main park but easy access to both) will including hike able features, smaller boxes and rails to lighten the load on the over populated Brennans Trail.
As for making the large 'ShowTime' jump at the bottom of the park, that feature only becomes realistic in a larger than life snow year. We had the snow, time and resources in the 07-08 season to accomplish the task. It was a awesome jump that many people enjoy. again it takes large amounts of snow to make a jump that big again. So pray for snow.
The upper right jump line is always a interesting design task because it also takes the right amount of snow for those features. Those particular sized jumps work there because of the grade of slope in that area. I might look into that line and maybe do something different there.
As for down in Proline (Waterfall, Jrs and Junks jumps) those sizes are also determined by snow. Waterfall can’t get much bigger than that size in a low snow year. Without a drop in people won’t make the landing if it was much bigger. It’s all about progression in a jump line like that theoretically Waterfall should be the smallest of the three with Junks being the largest as it was last season.
I am always open to ideas for features but they have to be maintainable on a nightly basis and user friendly to all. If you have suggestions post them here or send me and email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks and hope to see you all in the upcoming season.
