ok I see that you all really want to see some answers here. Here is the deal...
Lets start with rocks in the park...
Rocks in the park occur because the actual "dirt" in swifty park is not dirt it is a complete shale rock base.That means if a cat driver dips his blade one inch to low it does not just bring up dirt it brings up a good amount of these small rocks that the get churned into the snow. That is what you are seeing through swifty park.
Rail features, I am in the middle of throwing away many rails and putting in budget requests for this coming summer. Most of big sky's features are close to 8 years old. The average terrain park rail lasts maybe 4 years before it needs to get tossed.
Jumps, the new ambush jump line is not perfect I understand that. Alot of it has to deal with the amount of snow we had blown and the angle of the slope given to us. All the jumps will be moved down hill a good distance to avoid speed issues next season.
You must understand that the way big sky decides to budget there money is not up to us. Your voice counts by emailing big sky and explaining your frustration. Or if you are a employee actually go to the town hall meetings and talk about these things. But do it professionally remember the people reading emails or listening to you are usually a group of people that do not like parks or don't understand them.
Daphne, come on now you are better that that. Lets not talk shit about what departments don't do anything.
As many people do not know is that we dont just do terrain parks here. As of this year we take care of all the events ( dummy jump, snow bar, pond skim) Also now are cat drivers are having to build race courses and winching steep trails. There is more going on that you may think.
With any concerns you may have or ideas id like to here from you, You can shoot me a email anytime
