Echo has potential to be just like Bear...they have the same climate and snow to work with. They just need to stop hiring common street trash to design, build, and groom their parks.
BTW, I love how you make it like park rats are a bunch of hoodlums that ski out of control...when in reality, we have more control than 90% of the other gapers on schoolmarm. Even if you're making moderate speed turns on that run it seems like you're flying with all the people sitting. I ski fast, I don't fly, but I make controlled turns at a good pace. I'm not gonna pizza down the fucking run to make people happy. I'm gonna ski down it. If I ever hit anyone...it's 99% of the time their fault because they were sitting in the middle of a trail or were retarded and turned into me. I always stay off of schoolmarm, but given the current pre-season park situation I'm almost forced to take it down. There's no way I'm inconveniencing myself for fucking ski school. I pay more than most of them to ski each year anyway. So if I want to ski down schoolmarm, I sure as shit will.
Bitching on NS about this isn't going to help...instead of waving your authority around on the internet, how about you go ahead and actually pull the passes to the assholes almost hitting your kids? I never go near ski school - kids don't know ski sense so I stay away. I'm pretty sure almost anyone with a brain and common sense knows this too.
Oh, and how the fuck are people doing this "terrain park shit" near your kids exactly anyway? Maybe you're just jealous that they're having fun on the mountain and you're stuck teaching a bunch of piss pants how to buckle their ski boots.
