Yes dagmar had an excellent park last year and the park will still be maintained to the same level it was last year. and yeah lakeridge did have more flow than dagmar last year, no doubt about it. regardless both hills have great stuff to offer
Yeah the park isnt going to have any drastic changes, it will stay the same with some new features and new layout etc. it isnt going to get completely redone.
Yeah exactly, i agree completely on the spine and snow/butter box, it wasnt the best use of space. but yeah there will be a wide variety of features this year.
All input is appreciated!
So.....should I go to Dagmar or Lakeridge? I ski mostly rails, I dont really care about jumps
Yeah it will be Hawks Hurst and Wild Turkey that will be additional parks, and the purpose of them will be for really beginner level features, like very low flat boxes and very low rails. Something for kids to get used to before they go to something bigger. the main goal was to have lots of progression possible for riders.To make features that go from very easy adn gradually get harder until it reaches the more expert features in big daddy.
And all the 'hype' that has been talked about is true. I personally had a meeting with Bill and Jason about the park this year. All ideas that have been mentioned were talked about with them and they liked all ideas and are doing their best to make it all happen. So yes you are correct with saying that not all will happen, I never garanteed that. It was just ideas that were talked about and were possibilities. But i would say about 90-95% of it will happen
Well like I said, a park pass is going into effect this year, it was brought up at a meeting and management really liked the idea. It will keep everyone on the hill safer and prevent park riders from getting angry when there is younger children on the landing, preventing them from hitting a feature.
And if you read what i said early, that is what is going to be happening at Dagmar this year, it will be more of a easier transition from the smaller features all the way up to the larger features. SO there will be a lot of medium level features. Which allows progression to happen for riders and now 9 out of 10 features WILL be hittable by 9 out of 10 riders. And yes there will be a meeting about how the park is going to be setup this year, with input from everyone including skiers and snowboarders.
