Did you say free! That's amazing. I wish they had something like this near Portland that I could ride when I can't get a ride to the mountain and weekdays.

As far as I have heard, they still plan on doing it. As long as Winterpark is willing to do the set up and such. Milo is probably in the best position to know, but unless it's going to cost the city a bunch of money, it should be there. I believe this will be the third or fourth year in a row they have set it up.

They never opened it last year as far as I know. Not enough snow.

I could have sworn that they operated it last year. It definitely has a limited season, but anyway you are probably right.

More like it does't get cold enough to make snow. I am pretty sure that at least one of the years they did Ruby Hill, Winterpark brought down a snow gun to cover it. Unless it's a year that we get pounded by blizzards in Denver (one time in 20 years I have been here) it's generally pretty dry and lacking snow cover.

They have done it a few years and did not do it last year... They have brought trucks of snow in as well as the snow maker. From what I know it was going to open back up this year!

As an "old guy" working on improving my jib skills, I wish we had a place with a wide variety of easy boxes to practice on in the area. Meadows, Skibowl and Tline have a real limited assortment of easy stuff. Most of the features are way beyond my comfort level at this point. I love all of the easy boxes that park has...
I agree. That would be great.
