I am currently in my second year at college in central New York and have some issues with our local mountain Greek Peak. On the plus side, the mountain is only half an hour away and is really convenient to get to. It has a decent vertical and considering it's location actually has a decent variety of trails. They have a park set up on a few trails with a few rails and boxes. However, they have no jumps.
The main concern is over their park. All the rails are rusted and clearly there has been no effort in painting, sanding, or maintaining them at all during the off season. There are a few decent new boxes, however the majority are also rusted, have metal sticking up on the edges, and others are made with wood (and not like The Stash). To make matters worse EVERY single feature is set up with ride on lips and are set up within six inches of the ground. And this is the "normal park." The "progression park" consists of similar features but four feet long and level with the snow on the ground. There were no jumps last year. Well, there was one "kicker" but there was no landing or deck, just the natural trail. The trail was solid ice/cement and was not safe to land on.
What we have tried to do:
We have tried to make discussions on their facebook. However, some people got called in by management and were legally threatened. This year, many people have been posting on their facebook asking for improvements to be made. They have been ignoring the posts and have made no indications of any changes. The website is completely useless. They haven't updated the site layout in years, and haven't changed the snow conditions in months.
What other steps can we take to try to convince them to change their park? Before you say go to another mountain, I don't have a car and no reliable ride to get to other mountains so Greek is my only option. Working as park crew is also not an option.
My mountain's terrain park sucks and we've tried convincing them on Facebook to change. What else can we do?

(if you want to play a fun game just try to find their snow conditions)
I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.
