thatsGHow is Vail/Beaver Creek's park looking right now?
Was last at Beaver Creek March 5th and there was zero features set up in the main park. I rode up with an employee that said the upper park is looking ok (he said there is a triple jump line similar to the first jump line at Breck). So yeah I'd assume they won't bother putting up the main park this year.
Vail Jumps: Golden Peak park is open. They have the double jump line with a small booter into a decent step-over jump. And One big jump that is pretty large/poppy - it's pretty well made but I think the landing is a little flat given how poppy it is.
Rails before the jumps: On the large line (skier's right) - DFD rail and a down rail with a donky dick. Medium line (middle) - flat down box and a flat down rail. Small line (skier's left): a medley of dance pads, small flat boxes, and a couple flat tubes with no step-ups needed.
Rails after the jumps: Large line (skiers right following the lone large booter) - a flat tube with no lip, a wall ride next to a flat-down rail with no lip, a parallel double rail (gap between the rails), a wide "burrito" tube. Medium line (bellow the double jump line) - right line has a rainbow box followed by a battleship box, left line has an a-frame box followed by a whale(?) box. After that there is a fun pole tap feature, a down rail, something I forget, and a skinny cannon rail.
Tl;dr: Vail's park is pretty good right now with a nice mix of features
