I'm from NJ and I haven't skiied pipe in a few years now...most mountains that do get up halfpipes around here end up sucking and its a huge waste of time/snow/labor/energy and they're only up for the very end of the year and they end up sucking.
Don't get me wrong I love skiing a good half pipe, but I never really consider it a big part of the sport just cause so many people never see one...plus your edges have to be good for it and no one who skis park has edges.
Also I mean I obviously love watching it in the X games and Dew Tour and what not, but come on, slopestyle is wayyyyy more exciting.
I actually think that halfpipe events have more competition, and are just as fun to watch.
