How's the snow we just got? I'm coming up to ride this weekend and wanted to hear a little bit about the conditions. Read the snowmaking blog and it didn't pump me up like I was expecting it to.
I thought the park at the bottom of blackout was real fun midway into the season when it went up, but literally nothing has been switched around/ added since then. Shit's gotten real boring. As for Nor'e, the jumps on the lower half were pretty fun when I was last there (I'd guestimate that the two tables after the workroad are 40 and 45 ft. respectively). The stepup at the bottom, though small, is till as fun as always. When I was there, I didn't notice that the rails had strated to lean, but it's not hard to imagine that with this insanely hot weather they're lapsing into disrepair.
I'm inclined to give the park crew the benefit of the doubt this year due to the subpar conditions, but I still think they could have done a better job keeping the parks fresh by rotating the features around/ setting rails up differently/ adding new features.
Hopefully next year they step it up a bit. Our parks generally aren't this disappointing.
