Hey thought i might do an update about whats been going down at snowpark seeing as i've just come back from a week there.
The staff has slowly developed the park more and more.
my last day (tuesday) There are two solid kickers in a row with option to do a box run after or hit the step up or a left side hip jump. The kickers both have a pretty long landing, one can probably go about 40 ft on the second one (the bigger one). The step is pretty small but still fun (5s look good, 7s are hucked). The hip was pretty cool by the end, i probably had the chance to spin the slowest on the hip; with speed it can launch you quite high; good for cork3s and 5s.
There was only one down rail (takeoff on either side). The rest are all boxes, my fave being a sweet battleship perfect for switchups.
Celeb of my trip was Mike Wilson, although i didn't realize it at the time, he was just chilling most of the time and throwin some stylee chilled stuff. (Helen Clark also waved at me at queenstown airport, i mooned her).
there were heaps of other skiers at snowpark, many rippers, *the wells brothers ofcourse, who were skiing with mike*. Also many of new zealands finest, and some other guys from overseas that were throwing down...
I had heaps o fun.
One can see i am bored now. Hopefully I am returning late September which would be superbadass.
