I don't even know where that is so that should tell you something. I believe 5 or 7 is the youngest they'll take for a kid for lessons. If you want time alone definitely shove the kid in snow daycare I mean lessons.

You only have to stay out if your dumb enough to go way beyond your skill level. The problem is that people see Shaun White doing twirlybird 1080's on the television and think, "Shit, I can do that too!".

Then they break their neck.

So far I'm at the level where I can do the really small jumps and the boxes that are flush with the ground I'm sure I'll entertain myself on the rest of the mountain first hah.

Peak 9 park is where you want to go play then.

And no it's not a matter of people seeing Shauna White doing it and going in there people are just oblivious like the lady I landed on in Freeway when I corner shot a jump. Dumbass screamed at me while she was in the blind on a 55 foot jump thank god I was just corner shooting it and going at half speed otherwise she would have been dead.

I have tons of hilarious horror stories from kooks that shouldn't be in Parklane or Freeway. Like the asshole on the 167 pow board that hit me from behind on the flat up flat box.

Lol shauna white. That is one ugly bitch!

Yeah my friends are like that. They're just not up on the whole get the fuck out of the way when you fall business. I'm always telling them, don't speed check right before the jump because then you can't even clear the damn thing and you end up going backwards. Especially when it's busy. We were night boarding at Boreal so we basically had the whole resort to ourselves (there were others) but traffic was really light. So that was perfect because we really didn't worry about manners, there was nobody behind us. Actually was our first time in the park and we learned to jump.

EDIT: watching some vids breck looks sick I've only been to keystone

Breck>Keystone for everything! Keystone licks Brecks taint and wishes it was at its level.

I'm over manners I just hit people in the park that fall like that on a lip of a jump.

heres the thing, ive done a little research and it seems like you would have to be riding like 7 days to make the epic pass cheaper...right now on their site the epic local pass is $499, and most the lodging in that area is gonna be at least $150 a night for a 1br/1ba place...so lets say you do a 5 night stay with 5 days of riding, your looking at $750 for lodging and $1000 for two epic passes which is obviously $1750...but for example, through keystone's website they do package deals and I could get 5 nights stay with 5 days of riding at keystone or a-basin for $1400....so obviously, if you gonna do 6-7+ days of riding, and of course if your planning multiple trips out west, then yes the epic pass is def the route to take...but if your just taking one trip out west and only staying 5ish nights and riding, then there are cheaper routes to take than getting the pass

oh well then yea, if your staying somewhere free and riding 7-8 days, epic local season pass is cheaper than buying lift tickets for each day
