Winter Park CO

I have heard that Winter Park/ Mary Jane is not that great for snowboarding. If you agree why is that? I am planning on trying it out this coming up season and wonder what that is all about.

I don't care all that much for MJ and WP

But judging from your avatar, there's plenty for you to do at either area

Arguably the best tree riding in the state. If you can handle expert level tree riding that is.

He's right, I've ripped some gnarly trees at WP. The usual problem I ran into was that they were already trashed by the time I got to em.

I've only hit MJ a handful of times though... I'm sure there's a ton of gems I don't know about

The best spots are hard to find, and rightfully so.

Absolutely! That's why I've become so partial to Vail.... I know the place very well at this point.

Hey we've got some exploring to do this winter, Kill

Get that sled! I'm purchasing a tow rope and plastic roll up sled right meow actually, just in case.

If someone would drop a match on all that beetle kill and burn the fucker down the world would be a better place. Fuck that shit hole the trees aren't that great, resort is flat on one side steep on the other but to get from one to the other it's a bitch. You'd be better off just driving down the road to sol vista and not having any lines.

Sorry BA but I have to disagree with you 100%. You have no idea where the spots are. I think you'd have a blast. There is a ton of stuff that is like the goods at Vail Pass only more stacked. Plus some just fantastic trees inbounds and sidecountry.

Now if you want park, yeah, they fall short on that one. I guess it has been getting better, but from what I can tell they still lag far behind their Summit and Eagle county counterparts.

For freeride terrain, there is some pretty damn fine stuff there.
