Baker, no glitz or glamor except in your own drug infested delusional state; nothing to do but work and ride; if you party it can be a dangerous place. Really opposite end of the scale to W/B, small area, when it goes off its quite unreal however unpredictable, but there are weeks (on end) that it truly sucks, i.e., rain, gray, heavy wet chow, flat light and cascade concrete. If you are in to hillbilly deliverance isolation, can manage being peaceful/chill, accepting the suckiness and appreciate some bc hardcore vibe...my son said its like living a nightmarish version of snowboard camp...isolative tight quarters...he loved it but wouldn't do it again. Its really a locals hill, cause when it goes off, you got about 2 hours before everything is tore up by the local mobsters...unless its puking all day...its really fun and fun to watch the crazy shit that the locals do for those few hours...its like bedlam on the hill.

As for terrain, (no real park) its pretty rowdy, advanced but very small, steep, tight trees, cliffs, chutes, only 1 smallish open cruising bowl that is often closed and again conditions can be crappy...very...very...very few bluebird pow days. Lots more stuff out of bounds/bc but can be hellishly dangerous.
