What leo said about the parks. MTH is building their end-of-season park for a big slopestyle & big air contest this week. it should be pretty rad, as usual, but pretty high level. otherwise their current jump setup is cool, Pine Knob has the best jib area. I have reasonably higher hopes for Brighton beginning next season. I don't think Vail has had any time to put $$ in to development yet, but hopefully the can step it up.

Holiday Valley is supposed to be pretty decent. I almost went there this year, a friend of mine has been a few times and recommends if for nothing other than a change of scenery, on account of it being slightly taller and about the same distance as Boynes. I say check it out.
