treebeardboise used to have a park just outside of town. but that wasn't a smart idea, because winter temperatures in the valley average around 35-40 degrees with very little natural snow, so they were just fighting the weather the whole time and it failed
ironic that this year is our biggest snow total ever, and the park is gone
hippy.killerdo you mean boyce park in pittsburgh?
kung_powpowRuby Hill in Denver is managed by Winter Park, Denver parks and rec, and some volunteers. They have about 10 features set up rn
treebeardno, i meant the standalone terrain park in boise, idaho
weird though, i'm from pittsburgh and know where you're talking about. is boyce still a thing?
Swandog7Considering Hyland Hills doesn't actually have a park crew, a lot of features get fixed by the people who ride there because we are all sick of their shit so you could almost consider it like that, also its owned by the city and a park district.
gayprinkHyland needs to basically fix everything, they make terrible jumps, the lips are always bad, they have no clue how to set up a park
john18061806Hyland has too many people riding to make park maintenance even possible, just surf the ruts because that won't ever change. And if you think hyland jumps are bad then you've never hit a bad jump, they look ugly but the angles line up way better than most jumps in the Midwest. But to be fair, super is too big for a Midwest public park. Hyland's setup is the coolest I've seen it since I started riding there.
Enough about hyland. Chester bowl in Duluth is set by a park crew guy and freestyle program volunteers who send it after they set it. If you're ever in Duluth, check it out.
