After being in the beginner terrain park on Cypress on Wednesday, I'm even less happy with the beginner coverage on Seymour now. At minimum Seymour needs to add:
  • A ride-on rail that is less than a foot off the snow
  • A less than 20 foot jump
  • Very low street-style rail and box

There's some other stuff Cypress had that I really liked, but those weren't items that I would consider essential to easy progression. The items that I've listed would specifically help me get past beginner nervousness. Considering how little the rail on Lodge is getting used, I think I'm probably not alone.

Flabbergasted: Having an excess of flabbergas.
