i know this has nothing to do with kb, but heres whats up at holiday valley. they actually have a pretty decent park set up on fox fire. theres a couple good sized tables and a few new rails that were real nice. since kbs closed, it might actually be worth going down there.
kb is gonna be open this sunday. on the site it says opening at 9pm. but if you check the information update thing, it does actually say 9am. kb and the typos...they never end.
yeah. that park is pretty ill
^ yeah, kenton went earlier today and broke the bad news to me.
I know that I would rather wait longer for a higher quality product than to have haggard jumps as soon as possible
I went to KB the night of 1/23 and made 2 runs in the park, this is what I saw…
(it was snowing hard during the day, which would make park maintenance difficult so i did not include that in my review , i just discuss how the features were set up and built)
blowing snow in the jump line (just 1 gun though)
c box set up nice, they got rid of the awful death bump of a landing that was there on the weekend
flat box (but how difficult can it be to set up a flat box)
Up rail, I really liked this feature, good jump up to it, good upwards angle for spinning off, but not too steep that it limits what tricks you can do or that the steepness makes it strange to slide. The landing seemed a little close (I thought I was traveling too slow for spins off and I still overshot it) but regardless it is a really fun addition to the park.
jump on the left (was fun in mid December, but it has not aged gracefully, I hope they scrap it and start over)
rainbow box (no jump, just set in the snow, nasty ruts before and after)
trap rail (I have to draw it, too strange to explain,
the jump seems to be higher than the actual up section, it was not like this on
Monday and the way it was shaped it looked to be done on purpose, it was not the cause of heavy snowfall)
(not drawn to scale, but pretty damn close)
Bus kids (though not directed at me, “fuck you” and “fag” could be heard echoing through the night.
Super Mega Bad
The 1st jump in the bottom right jump line: a
child killer of a step down, a ski patrollers worst nightmare, and an ACL ripping’,
back snapping ice bump - I’ve seen 3 people hit it with what looked to be sufficient
speed - they all got bucked, sent up in a strange trajectory, rolled down the
window from start to finish, and came to an unpleasant crash upon the icy knuckle. The kicker appears to be mellow for the 1st
90%, and then at the last part it just has a short, steep, abrupt lip. Maybe if it were to be longer, wider, set
closer, and with a longer, more gradual transition, the jump would be
safer. But, with a landing that flat I don’t
know what they could do. I dont think it will be set up long and im pretty sure something safer will take its place. Maybe they just built it so that they could say they had a large jump.
