LemuelAnyone been this year? Saw some pics of some rails early on, wondering how it is right now. I'd love to head over there if it is somewhat decent.
Mr.BishopI had a blast there a bunch of years ago. Like 2007 when they were pitching being a park only mountain. We did a hostile takeover and it was tight.
Would love to hear what it's like these days.
LemuelI remember seeing the updates and photos! Looked so sweet.
Btw we should get some shredding in together Doug, it's been a while
theabortionatorSo what are the deetz exactly?
Went under, lady bought it, sold all the rails, made it a race mtn, went bankrupt nd nw they have a park again?
T.L.Basically. They reached out to the community fall of 2015 to see what type of interest there would be in a park. It was part of their last effort to open to the public and bail on the private race thing. I actually made up a whole proposal for ~15 or so features and volunteered to make them all. She seemed interested but didn't really seem to take it too seriously. I think she figured that running a park program would be some sort of 'turn-key' operation (it's not). Not familiar at all with what's going on down there now. Was going to reach out to the new guy a while back but just ended up with too much on my plate this past fall.
skiiraSo I went to a panel where the new owners talked about their plans for the 2017/2018 season. They want to make it a place for beginner skiers and park skiers. They are marketing themselves as the resort you'd go to after you get off work for a few runs and as the place you'd go if you want to learn to ski without investing in hefty lift tickets and long commute.
TrickyDick470The marketing sounds solid but I am curious to see what they actually deliver. The premise is great, but we need to see the results. I went to Echo a few times last year for some night shred and it is promising, but they definitely need some input from the community (you guys).
