chads is definetly not compare to a park jump. its a huge mandatory gap in the bacountry with hardly any tranny between the in-run and lip of the booter. and landing in the park is a hell of alot easier then landing in the backcoountry whether it is powder or not. a park jump is a perfect manicured jump. chads a dirt tailing/dirt mound in the mountains left over from mining - little bit different then a park my friend. landing in all sorts of conditions and types of snow is much harder then landing and riding away on a groomed slope.
bascially chads is "cool" because it has helped set a higher standard of BC jumping. and it helps us skiers to see the progression in out sport and different people taking a stab at chads and showing you what the have got. from candide being 16 and d-spinning it, to sage and collins, to rice and friends going like 200 feet, to who knows whats next. its just like pyramid, people will be talking about a certain session that went down on those jumps for years to come.
