The key will be for them to embrace a park-only operation. Keep the beginner areas for the kids and what not, but for the most part, focus on building a stellar park.

Their park sucks compared to what you find in Summit. Better than Loveland's, but that ain't saying much. If you're gonna be park only, to needs to be fucking awesome. Quit trying to draw people in for terrain you don't have.

Worst park I've ever ridden in Colorado. They have no idea how to build a feature, have flow, or build a fucking jump. Every kid that comes out of there has the worst park style and can't ride for shit. Close it down and move on.

So, I hear the new owner fired everyone this past Friday. Not just the people who needed firing, EVERYONE. Completely cleaned house.

Smartest move they could have made now if they'll drop prices, build 100% park, and figure out how to build a good park.

Management and marketing absolutely had to go.

I agree that they just need to focus on 100% park and do it right. It's really all they can do considering what they have to work with.

With a new owner its pretty standard to "fire" everyone and get new paperwork, people who dont reapply are dumb. I'm sure they will welcome most of their staff back...

Not in the snow industry I've been through the mass firing thing both on the receiving and applying end.

Yeah, from the word I got, it wasn't a paperwork thing, it was GTFO thing.
