Its official its a bust. Bear took down most of the park to set up something for Redbull and Snowboarder Magazine. They pushed A LOT of snow down where the 100 footer was and you can tell the rest of the runs are suffering. Its a cool setup but you have to be part of the comp. or whatever to get in. Anyways Ill still give you a report.

Showed up at 9:00. Lifts were not open until 9:20. It was really icy and hardpack for the first 30-45 minutes which is good because it was fast but after about 45 minutes it just went to crap. Cruised around for a while just taking it easy because of the conditions. After about two hours there was absolute NO speed what so ever. The park was ok. Still the same setup up top except where the up/down box (next to the kink rail) there is now a flat bar rail. Farther down its still the analog box with a normal box on the right. Rainbow rail is still there. Redbull plaza was fucking HORRID.. I kept skipping it for the hips. Water tank is still down by the hips. They took out the big pyramid and the jump in the middle now is a HUGE 150 footer that I just laughed at. The lower park was exactly the same.

Wrap up. Save your money.
