Oh and so it begins the endless Windells threads ha ha.
Yes stuff is expensive there for sure. I think last summer ranged from 1600-2000 depending upon the time of summer you went. Obviously session 1 2 and 3 and 7are a little bit cheaper because who knows the snowfall by then. Looking at Hoods snow fall so far...it looks like they are going to have a crap ton of snow throughout the summer to be able to at least not boot pack out till session 6 (that is a speculation though). Whoever said their park is mediocre... I saw kids improve so much within a week so it is really what you put into it (this really is not a point of logic at all but if the park is so mediocre why do upcoming pros and pros ride there...or even land triples within the park? It is probably because the park is awesome and super fun). Plus the park crew busts their asses off to make sure it is legit. As far as the bag jump being open only on the half pipe, sadly that is scheduling conflicts with the US Olympic Snowboard team.
I want everyone to think of the last time they went skiing....if you did not smile, laugh, or give a high five...you're doing it wrong.
