i have a house there and am there every weekend the parks are sick and even though this past season sucked the crew still managed to put a sick park together. The town has alot of good restaurant and shit like that overall its real fun in the winter and in the summer the mtn biking sick
nick doesnt lie, even winterton said the scene there was the best in the east perhaps anywhere...I've lived there all my life and I couldn't be happier with the park unless it was in the west. best park and scene in the east
"In rode the Lord of the Nazgul. A great black shape against the fires beyond, he loomed up, grown to a vast menace of despair. In rode the Lord of the Nazgul, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face.
All save one. There, waiting silent and still in the space before the gate, sat Gandalf upon Shadowfax : Shadowfax, who alone among the free horses of the earth endured the terror, unmoving, steadfast as a graven image in Rath Dinen."
deffinately not, snows park is better because their park and pipe crew are so much better and not lazy and slow, also the skiing outside the park at stratton is so lame where as at snow there some enjoyable stuff on the north face...
me: So what did you tell them?
Phil: I told them i wanted some fucking goldfish...
i thought old mt. snow park crew = present stratton crew. i could be wrong, though. i thought they just weren't doing a dope job at mt. snow and are now at stratton. all i know is that mt. snow definitely has the best park for sure in the eastern portion. diablo this year was so sick until they had the usasa snowboard comp. and made everything tiny as hell, sick flow still, though.
mount snow has always been a sick mountaint to ski at. if you like to fast and carve mad turns, whether they be switch or forwar, there is the North face. if you like trees there are trees that you can fast on and trees that are semi steep. if you like parks they have like 4. next year i heard a rumor that inferno is going to be under the main quad on the corinthia section. if so, it is going to be crasy long with massive jumps. i would deffinatly recomend it
elia, the head park guy, is a genious. but i would figure that they would put big jumps toward the top. and then where it gets flat put in rails and small jumps. i would think if they did that they would get rid of diablo. it would be just one huge trail of park. it would be so sick cause that trail is in the sun for a long time, and you could get dope angles filmimg from the lift.
this year mount snow was pretty sick even with the lack of snow and everytime i went to stratton it was awful. their pipe was 3-4 hits long they took down all the rails in the power park and had a pipe one jump one box and a box/wallride thing. i would deffenetly choose snow over stratton and at stratton you need that fucking ses pass... my dad had to sit through the session in order to watch one of my comps. just not needed
^ haaaaa truee, diablo n inferno are good trails for parks already- but in inferno they just dont put that much shit in it...it only had like 3 rails n 3 jumps..they try to much for bigger features like w/ that up rail to down rail....they shoulda just seperated em n made an up rail w/ a big landing n a nice down n they blow too much money on single features like spendin 5 g's on that lame green monster..that place just needs more rails cuz the jumps are dope, some good rails could set it off...killy killed it this year cuz no matter how shitty the conditions they always just have mad rails up
mt snow is sooo sick. if youre gonna do the freestyle team there or go to the academy, do it. i ve been on the team for a couple of years, and i have improved soo much. we all push eachother to do and more and the coaches are the best. and besides that, the parks are sick.
word. thats what me and like 20 friends did. sooo cheap for soo much. like 420 bucks for killy, snow, attitash, sunday river, and some other random places. killy is best in the east, period. then id say okemo. then mt snow then prolly stratton. this is for park. jay and stowe are best for real skiing. killy def the best overall though. only problem is steamboat is the only american ski company resort thats pulled a profit in a few years, which means these resorts could potentially get worse over the next few years.
