Im super excited, every time around this year I spend all day at school watching snowboard videos.
Sorta sad that they are adding the lift to orchards. I've had a good amount of fun in there without the crowds. On the better years people had built some nice jumps in there; though riding the orchards was a real gamble for your board. My friend got a nice gash right through his base last year.
If you look at the blue mountain trail map, you will notice on the very edge of the north side theres an area where it looks like the trees have been somewhat cleared, but i've never ridden it before. Gonna try it this year, has anyone done it before? Was it worth riding?
