Have you been to HV lately? They groom at night, meaning if it snows overnight, you get a pow day in the park which isn't that fun if you want to get speed for the jumps. To hit their last booter, you have to pump through the whole park just to get speed. Their longest rail setup is about 15', vs bristol's 25ish'. Bristol's take offs are always crisp, while HV's are not smooth at all. Plus, bristol has at least 5 more hits than HV. You guys who get to ski bristol every day don't know how lucky you are.
well, i would guess bristol isnt the best, but its usually better than kb or hv. however, according the dylan manley (tight-pants tap-shifty gay-boy extrodinare) kb is set up better than hv. as of now, kb has a legit 60 footer if youre into that kind of stuff and a sick rail line. not too much variety, but way better stuff that in the past years.
that does sound pretty awful, bristol has been pretty good about grooming the park in the morning lately. i still think HV has more rails and better set up rails than we do, our jumps really arent bad at all though.
im invincible, nobody and nothing can tell me otherwise
Hate to say it man, but the parks are disgraceful. There are 3 i think and one which is shitty rollers. The first has 3 jumps, 2 which speed is available for, and like previously mentioned, they do groom at night which fucks everything up. Theres also shitty little rails and boxes which are awful next to those jumps. The next park had two rails set up urban, not to bad, then a little cannon box and pyramid type cannon box also. Then two jumps which werent very good. The next park is the rail park. Worst of all. shitty butter box, kink box, battle ship box, all shitty jumps on. theres also this one rail which is a flat bar to a box with no jump on. then there is a cannon corrugated pipe into an ice bank. The actual mountain is nice though, parks are a joke.
im heading to HV this saturday and i looked on their mtn cams and they seem to have taken all the features out of their parks? did they take them out for the year or are they just re doing them for the weekend?
bristols park is the best of all but hv is close behind!
bristol has good and big jumps they have a couple small tables and a bunch of nice yet smaller tabletops in the mini park, but they do NOT allow inverts wich sucks they will pull ur pass no questions asked, but u gotta be dumb to get caught because there rarely in the park.
the rails at bristol are very large! most in the big park other then the mailbox and mini gap rails are highenough to nut urself badly so if ur not a master at rails u wont hav much fun on their rails!
as for the mini park, its pretty fun to just screw around in but it has 0 rails and only little short boxes all u can do off the jumps is a 3 or 5 mabey a flip or 2, i hav seen a misty off the little cheese wedge at the end tho.
the pipe: well lets say its not great there is no slope so keeping speed is impossible and the walls are 12 ft so the first hit is the only good one
when popping on skis to get more air off a jump, do you just jump?-Armadaskier1928
