I'm still kind of piecing together what I can here. I found the blog of the County Commissioner for Ingham County (where Lansing is) and these are the posts relating to this snowboarding hill; Schor Report: Ingham County Commission Blog: Snowboarding Hill

What I've gleaned so far;

* Modern Skate and Surf pushed for this and is finding as many features to add at little to no cost to the county. Grind rails, fun boxes, flat rails, round rails, and "hips". Whatever that is.

* There will be beginner, intermediate, and advanced snow board runs.

* There will be some fees to use the hill but I don't know the pricing structure yet. Equipment rental will be available.

* There will be snow making quipment. (WHAT!!???)
