just kidding i've just always wanted to say that. Anyway, the future is looking brighter for Pat's park, it was sick when i went there.
they have 100% of their trails open and a park with a few fun jibs. It's nothing special but its better than last year and wicked fun.
dont forget the s-box at the other park enterance
and the jumps are like 10 or 15 to the knuckle. you need to go like 20-25 to get sweet spot and not land in the giant crevaces that form late in the day
Pats park looked pretty decent yesterday. I was up there with some kids from a non-profit I volunteer with and took them to the park. Too bad I had surgery on my back so I could not throw down hard and sorry if they snaked you on the box, I explained to them the rules of the park after our first run down it. That being said, the jumps looks a little shady, but the boxes and rails seemed to be on point. The tree bonk at the end needs some serious help. To the kids who were slaying the box, you all looked super good, I know one of the kids had like 7 tall teez and a tall black hoodie on. I watched you guys for a little and was very impressed with your skills.
Also to the kid who was rockin the new Empire pipe golves, I dont know if I said thanks for the feedback, I will pass it along.
I was there 3:30- 4:45 and the park looked so much better than last years. No more shitty spine!!!!!! I saw a good deal more freeskiers there than last year too. Hit me up, I'm in green/white/orange with octolands.
A snowboarder friend of mine probably overshot the third jump in the lower line. He was convulsing for a few minutes and most likely broke his collarbone or injured his shoulder. I didn't actually see the fall, came over the rise and found him in a seizure with his helmet 20 ft below. If you saw it from the lift, please let me know. I put my gloves behind his head, but beyond that I understand you shouldn't hold them down. Still very hard to watch. I blocked off the jump above and I'm sorry for holding up lower Turbulence for so long, but thanks for your understanding. Patrol reacted well once they arrived and he was aken immediately to the ER. Put a damper on first day at Pat's for sure
so maybe it was me but all the rails and boxes i hit at pats two fridays ago didn't slide well at all...like i couldn't make it to the end of the boxes they weree so bad...whats up with that. also it is just me or are the lips on those jumps like straight up?
but even with all my criticism the park does look much better with the jump line and all. but ya i wanna go there after school on thursday and practice spinning off some relatively small jumps so i guess its a good bet but i wish the rails slid better and i dont think its my skis cuz i was at mount snow yesterday and they're boxes slid SOOO damn good...too bad its 3 hours away
