Well if you do ride park or are interested in riding more park, I'd get a pass to Hawk Island to supplement whatever else you decide to do. The Hawk season pass is only like $100 which pays for itself after a few days.

My personal preference would probably be Mt. Holly, I'm stoked that Vail is putting $$ in to Brighton, but I'm going to be a skeptic until I see it materialize. I know they are putting money in to the terrain, now $10MM is a lot of money to me, but it's not that much when you start talking about lift towers and re-grading hills, refurbishing 10,000sf of facilities, and buying several hundred new sets of rental gear, etc.

I think it will be a better hill than it is/was, and I think their parks are likely to be on point from now on. But I still think I'll prefer to ride Mt. Holly's terrain.
