allrighty y'all, I said I would deliver today so here are the goods.
Payday- For those of you here that ride if you remember all the gravel in the snow while payday was open, there was no snow in any of those 3 payday parks, with a 6-8 inch base being the norm. and that 6-8 inch base would get worn away very quickly especially when it was warm. which has happened alot this year. :( There is also an issue with the exit of the second payday park and the entrance of Kings Crown. everyone would straightline from the park to crown and that whole area is a trail merge area and there were many a letter sent to the resort about "those little punks" flying out of the park. So there we get into the whole speed thing again. but ya.
Kings Crown- The new feature is the moto jump, it's been buffed and rebuffed and tweaked since it was opened, and there are still things that can be done to make it better but it's a fun little toy to play around on. As for new features, Yes there will be more but no I don't have a specific timeframe for them. Play with the moto jump as much as you can because If we need snow for something or decide to change a feature that will most likely be where the change will be made a few weeks from now. If the weather moves to warmer climates then we won't have the snow to play with and new features take the backseat to keeping the existing features "snowy".
Joneseys- Ahhh Joneseys, the center of so much hatred right now. It is being reshaped for athletes coming through before the world superpipe. The third jump was mowed over and all that snow is being pushed together with the 4th jump and there will be a large step up jump. the inrun for it is long and steep so speed won't be an issue anymore. The second jump as well will get re-worked before we open it, just layering the landing a bit. Here goes the shameless plug, for more updates I try to update the blog every couple weeks or as needed. http://parkcity.typepad.com
Pick n Shovel- well, it's there for the beginners, and it is actually pretty fun for the beginner types. The superpipe is still there as well. hasn't moved.
As far as tickets are concerned, if you don't have a fast tracks pass, DONT CUT INTO THE FAST TRACKS LINE!!! Those people pay lots of money to have the ability to get into that line, and if you don't have that pass, technically you are stealing from the resort but it's just not kosher guys please don't do it. It's a busy weekend, everyone wants to get to the lift but presidents day is always a crowded time and you just have to deal with it. Don't do things that make us have to take your pass, we are out here to have fun not come down on everyone. Although if you sit on a jump, especially in Joneseys and especially on a weekend, not only will you hear it from one of the park crew guys (and depending on how much abuse we've taken already that day it might not be the nicest get off the jump please) and you will for sure hear it from the riders sessioning the jump. I think hockey stops were the weapon of choice for people last weekend to get the message across.
Thanks for understanding, thanks for reading, just go out and have fun damnit!
