I was flipping through pictures of the parks at blackcomb and grouse (a local mountain in BC) from 3 years ago, and i notice that all the jumps were way bigger, and the rails were way smaller. Now the rails are obvious, people were worse at them, as they got better at rails demand for longer more technical rails became bigger and thier demands were met.
You cant blame snowfall for this because the jumps were smaller last year too and they had easily enough to make much bigger ones, but the hits in the blackcomb park and other ones in western canada are getting smaller - alot smaller. The biggest i saw hut jump all year other than wsi (when it was still small) was around 30 feet. The jumps were always poorly made with rolling knuckles and flat landings. Why are parks (around BC anyway) spending less time on making decent tables, and more time on rails? Sure kids love seeing rails in the park, but both skiing and snowboarding at its highest level is based mainly on jumping. what the fuck is going on!?
