You are in boise?! Awesome man! Good to hear! Looks like you joined a while ago but just posted for the first time here, so welcome to the forum

And yes! The new park is really freaking fun! But you are absolutly right about the snow turning brown! The second section of the park, it really was getting bad, and most of that is due to how hard people have to stop to set up for the next features due to the grade of the run. I know i ruin it pretty bad lol. Ive been working on gaping the down section of the shot gun rail ( first hit on the right of the second park section). I would like to get a grab over the down section of that rail. But to do that I need a ton of speed, and ALL of that speed has to be scrubbed off before I get to the next set of features. That results in a super hard brake that just scrapes around tons of snow, and as many riders as they had doing that...its going to turn back to dirt soon if we dont get more snow.

Me and another member here (thugit) work at the hill and are ridng there pretty regularly. Some time you should ride with us.

I'm sure if they dropped 100k into a park set-up they will use some of that to add some lights to the rest of the line

Yup. They donated it because word must have gotten around enough that we DESPERATELY needed a new park set up. As far as lights go, nope. I know that building lights wasn't in the budget for the new park. That would cost too much.
