i could definetly see lots of company's pitching in...imagine the possibilties. a BC Surf adn Sport 1/4 pipe, Christy's Tabletop, Colorado Ski and Golf Hip...etc. ROcky Mt. Snowboard Rails
the possible sponsors are endless

I like the idea, but wonder how successful it would be. i think the majority of coloradans are ready for the ski season to be over when it is. I'd love to see this though and would be there a lot. hey if skate parks work, why not jib parks?
i actually have no idea what that thing in the museum in denver is like but i gather it's just a gay ass little bunny hill--i dunno if its man made snow or fake. however, my idea is to make a park that is primarily geared towards park riders, but might also have something for a broader crowd, such as a bunny hill (ack!) or possibly a mogul field since snowflex can be used to make all of these things.
YA!! have comps every so often during the summer, u have to pay a little bit to help keep it running and pay employess and so on...we should ask some companies or someone that might have the money to do it..

thanks for posting guys i am working on getting sponsors and i also know lots of general contractors and i am interning with an excavating company this summer--i know there is a park in the UK sponsored entirely by sprite but i am trying as hard as possible to find independent sponsors because being a corporate slave is the last thing i want to do
i am going to hold off on informing a whole shit ton of people right now because the idea is just in preliminary stages right now and i don't have a serious proposal ready for big name peeps yet--i am quite serious about this venture though i just want everything to be professional and not sound like i'm just some dumbass kid who just graduated from college and just had a stupid idea for a dope ass park--it will just be a while because i will be working 50+ hours a week starting in three weeks--after that though i will have a serious connection for the excavation part of the project which is a very large portion and i will also have tons of free time to ski, get info from more skiers and boarders who don't post on ns, and work on my proposal(s) for investors, contractors, sponsors, and anyone else involved--i also haven't figured out the land costs yet since that will have a huge impact on the project--anyway i should just shut my mouth until all the formation comes together so no one steals my idea
the soonest it would be up and running would be the summer of 2005. what it includes depends directly on the amount of $ that wwe receive from sponsors. we want it to be not only a snow park but also a skate park as well. the snow park will come first and foremost though. a lift would be prime, but i can't say for sure whether we would initially have one. if we didn't but business went well off the bat a lift would definitely be in store. i will continue to post as new developments take place
i think that a poma lift would be better, i dunno, i just don't really see then need to have a chair lift, when you can have a poma for a lot less money.
***Just Ski It***
if it becomes a problem that we are TOO busy (which isn't a huge problem from my standpoint) then there would be some sort of limiting, but that will be something we can't determine until it's up and running
1. A hip would be great so that all sorts of level skiers could hit it
2. Season passes are mandatory
3. Food would make alot of money

sorry i haven't responded to this thread in so long--i just got internet back this week after a painful three month(?) absence. Anyway.....We are still very much trying to make it happen. Last time I talked I hadn't started my internship with the excavating company. I've now been there for two months and discussed the work with the president of the company. He said that by the time it would be built (Summer 2005 at the soonest) the company would have expanded to Denver. He also told me that he could work out a deal to do the earthwork at a VERY low cost in return for shares of the profits. This is something the company has already done on several projects. We also don't think finding sponsorship will be the hard part. The only thing we are still having trouble with is the purchase of the land. If anyone has ANY suggestions for possible locations (please be as specific as possible) they would be greatly appreciated. We are probably looking at approximately ten acres within 30-45 minutes of Denver. I apologize for not posting anything recently but I will resume now. Peace
