ski_steeSo lemme get this straight....
No more public park on Palmer.
Public park on the Mile till it melts still I'm guessing?
and Timberline is gonna supply workers for the camps?
LivingDaLifeWhose story is that? It sounds to me like it's a camp and they're not employing a dig staff because Timberline is doing it. That doesn't necessarily mean Timberline won't have a park, it just means their park crew will be busier - which they never really did a lot anyway other than maybe a lap a day (maybe they do more now, I haven't skied summer park in about 5 years, so not judging if it's changed in recent years).
RparrDoes this include the spring pass or just after? Fuck I was looking to come up in May
fghtoffyrdmnsThat’s my story, I lived in govy for years. I’ve heard kinda conflicting reports from friends who are employees up there, but I do know mhssc lane is gone, and timberline staff will be digging for windells. Basically timberline is trying to put a monopoly on freestyle skiing in the summer, and since pro park has been a thing the pub park has suffered since they put the best features in there and then make you pay extra for it. I’ve heard from a few people there won’t be a public park in the summer, heard from someone that clinger not be the case. I’ll keep this thread updated when I know more, but regardless, rip mhssc park.

Titus69As long as the spring pass exists im cool with it, however if they didnt charge up the ass for summer lift tickets id spend more time out there. Looks like the last two summers have been shit for the public park, which back in 2012 when i was at windells was better than the camps park. It ruins the fun of skiing in the summer if you have to pay $30 more a day to ski a few better rails and a jump off a rope tow, just scrap the whole pro park thing and make a solid public park with a reasonably priced season pass. Not complaining but I still don't get why in may you pay $140 for a month of the best late season conditions hood offers but come summer time you pay roughly 7x that for only another 2 months thatll eventually require hiking to and from the lifts, i get that the whole thing costs a lot to run 80% of the year but im sure the peoplen running it know that besides tourists most of their customers are bums living in their cars washing dishes.
fghtoffyrdmnsEmployees with summer passes still have to pay 30 bucks a day for pro park which is fucking stupid
a_burgerThey just posted a press release, seems pretty win-win to me. Everything stays the same except Timberline is building the parks for all the camps. I assume they will hire some new staff to help with that, so some of the camp diggers can actually make a decent wage doing that
fghtoffyrdmnsPublic park will still suffer since all the good features will go the pro parks but at least pub park will still be a thing
skiermanWell that's a shame.
