  • 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.
I lapped through the beginner park at Cypress yesterday and would totally agree with you that it is done properly, unlike Mushroom at Seymour. A couple years ago when Seymour had Mushroom set up beside the rope tow they had rails and boxes less than a foot off the snow and it was done right.......I guess those were the good ol days
