This is from the newsletter:

BIG PLANS AND BIGGER AIR - TERRAIN PARK PLANS

Young Guns - XL jump line of 3 tables and the jib line down through the old half pipe. This park will feature many of our large contests. Features will range from L to XL.

Mushroom - More features than ever before. We will be using the old Mushroom zone as well as the new zone from last year. Mushroom will have more features in a row for beginners to progress on. Features will range from S to M.

The Pit - Street style setup. Features will range from M to XL.

Northlands - A top to bottom park run on the new Mystery Peak Express. This park will run through Nut House and then down into Northlands and then into the Pit.

We have some new zones in Nut House, featuring large natural type hits and the landings will be amazing on powder days. The Nut House will have a natural feel with groomed take offs and powder landings. The rest of Northlands park will have jumps and jibs from M to XL.

'Course I'll be concentrating on the S and M features, being neither very good nor suicidal.
This is good to hear as they needed to step up their beginner obstacles to allow progression for the new to park riders...

This was not the case until last year when they put in the magic carpet, took out the rope tow and subsequently removed mushroom park to prevent the park riders from using the carpet. Previous to last year Mushroom had always been a great set up for beginners and comps. ( maybe they were actually reading my wtf? emails). Anyways it is great to hear they are rethinking the park for beginners and good news they are also moving Young Guns park down the old half pipe as this area of the mountain was not being utilized very effectively. New zones in nut house?? Sweet!! As a long time seasons pass holder I am excited about these positive changes!
