I know there have been a million Stevens Pass vs Summit at Snoqualmie pass threads before, but if you take everything else away, and just focus on the terrain park jumps, or other jumps in general, how do they compare?
Heres the reason I ask. I've been going to snoqualmie for like 8 years, its pretty much all I know. The reason being stevens is just so much further away, and so much more expensive. I can get an early bird special on a season pass at snoqualmie for like $300 (which I hate to say it, but thats still a lot of money for me right now), and go once or twice a week if conditions permit, whereas that same price, plus the extra gas cost, I'd only be able to go to stevens like 4 times.
However I'm just so unhappy with the jumps at snoqualmie. They are almost always either (A) not yet built, (B) closed off after not being re-built after the last snow dump, (C) So completely ice hard that I don't dare try anything big, or (D) some other BS reason that they suck. Its almost always a disappointment. Out of all the times I go each year, it seems there are extremely few days I ever get in a good jumping session where the jumps are built, good, and have a landing thats not rock hard. Not to mention the ridiculous lines, and sometimes ridiculously stupid layouts. And why on earth do they put their smaller secondary terrain park they sometimes have next to the tiny baby lift that services mostly toddlers? Seriously?
I don't really care about rails and boxes much, so that doesn't matter to me, I just want to progress my aerial tricks better. How do they compare in terms of jumps?
