the up handrail at the bottom was sick
-top jump good for learning new tricks
-corrigated pipe (set up down to grind and on top of the spine at the beginning of the season)
-side kicker (bottom right)
-the period of time when the mini park was full of features
-30 ft out all season
-no flat hand rail, only the cannon and down rail (i've been wanting to learn to handrails)
-mini park lacked features
-mini park jump too small to learn anything on
-the tow rope SUCKS
-more rails during early season when there isn't enough snow to build jumps
-because of lack of early snow, there should be more unique rails. Ex: c box, up flat down box, mini rainbow box, tires, tree jibs, any thing crazy or unique to PNS
-close meadows and turn it into a park. the run is useless and only attracts gapers to the blue lift. there are plenty of square runs and meadows would be PERFECT, no pun intended, for another park. that way all features could be out all year
-not sure if this is under park crew control, but i love the natural jumps on the tree runs. maybe build some up?
- middle jump was perf to learn stuff on
-36ft handrail was in a good posistion
-the hip like jump that was to the right of the bigger jumps was good for spins and whatnot.
- the 16ft(?) at the bottom of the mini towards the end of the year was good to learn grinds on
- the 1st jump on audition is pretty useless
- no kink box
- rope tow in the mini. should get a rope with the handles
- speed was hard to judge for the last jumps.
- step downs.
- and idk if it was just me but the rails got soooooo sticky at times and i busted my ass becuase of it haha
and just wondering, what new rails are being planned to be built?
the best idea is to turn meadows into a park. there would be almost no lift line because it would only be park skiers. we would still have a short lift time to the top, and PNS would have the space to put out more of their features. i understand that meadows is used by the instructors, and they probably wouln't want to give it up, but far side is a better learning hill IMO.
BTW: are there going to be any new rails/ boxes/ jibs this year? thatd be awsome!!!
