I just found this forum, have been skiing for like 9 years but just started freestyling last year, I ride at alpine valley, if uve never been there it has a pretty sick park every year. If you see a 15 year old kid with a black and white jacket riding 09 k2 disorderlys thats me. I'm dece best trick is prolly only a 3' but im learning fast.
I was there on wednesday and it was a freaking zoo so many little 9 year olds rolling over the jumps that they were all trashed by about noon it was ridiculous how many people there are that need to STAY OUT OF THE PARK!!! Other than that I was really impressed with the two BIG kickers they have over in the larger terrain park one of them was probably a 20-30 footer.
Out there almost every weekend. Haven't been out since the big park has opened. The mini park is usually trashed by noon. You have to get there early and lap it in the morning otherwise it pretty much worthless. The big park stays pretty consistent though since most people avoid it.
