Buck hill in Burnsville, Minnesota, which also just added a dry slope for the summer, partnered with the 1817 snowboard crew also out of minnesota to design, build, and maintain and basically make an 1817 branded park in every sense. Growing up skiing hyland and buck hill I've been watching these guys kill it and build an awesome snowboarding community/movement in Minnesota/ the midwest thats kind of seperate from the scenes on the coasts and has been responsible for a ton of innovation in the sports. Ive see them at the roots of a lot trends in snowboarding (which skiing has then coopted as it often does) including new tricks, the carhart overalls wearing segment of skiing and snowboarding, and trollhaugen blowing up. I also see them as one of the main reasons that snowboarding is still king at most Midwest hills. Their park at buck looks super sick already even with the limited snow minnesota has seen. Has this ever happened in skiing? Something like the bunch or the hoodcrew completely taking over a park that's at the epicenter of their scene. If not I think it would be dope to see it happen. The way I see it, this is a completely new opportunity for crews in skiing and snowboarding to connect with their communities/ individual scenes and market the shit out of themselves. What think u ns?
