I just got a job on park crew at my local hill, Ski Snowstar, in Andalusia, IL. Just wondering what everyone likes to see in the park, so I can bring fresh ideas to Snowstar.
Attach photos if you got any. Figure iFlip will post something stupid.
Sorry for stupid sideways picture. If you can, build fun boxes kinda like this. rails with hips and jumps and whatever, make sure they are really long rails too so people can have more options. Seriouslay these are so fun
i build this in my backyard in an hour with a shovel. Imagine what a snowcat can do!
I hate shin bang, it feels like someone took a rubber mallet to your shins without mercy
make sure rails are long.. the worst is having too short of a rail you can nothing but slide on it.. make sure there is a varying degree of features and definatly large tubes are fun. Essential rails are dfds, long flat rail/tube.. if you can z or s or y rails are so fun and a flat down rail is very fun too as well as waterfall rails.. dont put them too high nor to low.. go easy on boxes but get creative!! also dont put two rails or boxes next to eachother that much.. my home resort loved to do that and with very limited space it honestly was such a waiste of a feature spot.. vary between urban on lips and ride on but more urban on the better.. !
I like pretty simple stuff alot of up rails though are definitely fun cannons are an absolute blast. I see alot of parks just trying to be super creative to the point where the features are scary to try tricks on.
-Down urban ( handrail/square stock rail)
-wide flat box
- casual flat down rail (this can turn into an up flat as well)
-donkey (rail preferred but box isnt terrible if its all you have(
-urban box (gotta help some progressions)
-butter box (can make it into a wallride/takeoff)
-DFD rail (Necessity for legitimate parks imo and for god sake, make it urban and a respectable size)
- a few tubes dug halfway into the ground for fucking around on
-small rails and boxes for groms/beginners
More advanced stuff:
-FDFD (or DFDF)
-wide rails for snowboarders/buttering+pressing with 50/50s
-aggressive angle flat downs/down flats/ kinks in general
-cannon rail+boxes (both is best to work up to the feature imo)
-mellow cannon rail to gap to snow butter pad (make this one for me pls and I will come to your park)
-taps/bonks/ TRANNY OPTIONS
-gap to rail
Im getting carried away but this should be plenty to consider hope i helped
We don't need websites to plan our ski days, we just wake up in our car at the bottom of the mountain. -Ribss.
