Im just going to be clear on a few things. Im a snowcat driver at COP, so let me throw some knowedge down.
One: I have no idea who this "pro-boarder" is who comes and builds park at the begining of season. Wade is the manager, and he ( as well as the rest of us cat rivers...four others) builds park. Wade has done it for years and is actually pretty good at it.
Two: Pat from Planet snowparks builds the pipe/park for the burton open with our help.
Three: the lift not being up is not COP's fault. Its the contractors that were hired to build the dirt mound for the "Race pitch". Dopplemeyer is just waiting for all that dirtwork to be done so they can start work.
Honestly this is the BEST managed resort I have ever worked for. The staff are hardworking, and never stop. If you have problems just go talk to customer services instead of bitching online and not actually working to get anything done.
