I just wanted to give a little update on what we're doing at Cascade with the parks. Right now the railyard is the same set up that it has been for a little while. We plan on resetting and swapping some rails on monday and tuesday before Salomon Freeski TV comes on Wednesday. Speaking of which... definitely come check that out because it's going to be super fun.
The North Park is still a work in progress... progress being the keyword. We've made some huge changes since last year... including a pretty gnarly rail line and some real jumps. The third shelf still needs to be pushed out and shaped but the first two shelves are looking pretty damn good. The rail line goes: Short Flat to Long Down, Tall box Top with a huge drop off to a steep landing, and a 33' box top that is smooth as butter. The middle jump line has a 20-25 footer, and two jumps that are about 30 feet. The last jump has yet to get bigger. The left jump line has 2 10' beginner jumps. The drop in is pretty big and steep and it really helps scare away the people who shouldn't be in there.
Cottontail, the progression park, is still a work in progress as well. Right now it has a quadruple barrel rail, a large butter box, a small butter box, and some rollers.
So come check out the changes we have made... I've been getting some really positive feedback from people so far this year and I would love to have more fellow NSer's to ski with!
