yachattack hey, yea, im unfortunate enought to be a midwest snowboarder too...but i guess its not all that bad. iv been to chestnut about 15 times, and devils head about 8 times, and then cascade twice. i think devils head is a nice place to ride, and has a nice park area. with a pipe and lots of rails to grind. cascade is the busiest place to board, the lines are insane and there are simply not enough runs. and just not a nice view or pretty place to board. however, it does have a really nice park area. chestnuts park area blows, but there runs are pimped. there more challenging not to mention the scenery is spectacular...i cant get enough of it. rolling hills everywhere with a view of the mighty miss river in the distance. plus the resorts right on the hill, which is nice. i would say there all kinda good in there own way. but like the guy above me said...DEVILS HEADS LIFTS ARE SO SHITTY!!!

pawel I plan on going to Chestnut this winter. Hope its fun. I heard Galena is supposed to be real nice. On average how long does it take you to get down the mountin?

midwestrider Yea thats it. Because all the runs are groomed (except the mogul ones). By nightime it gets all sloopy.

Nikolai ah...yea eagle was the mogels but i dont remeber seeing any groomers...prolly cause i always went to the night sesions heh
08-28-2007 10:25 PM
midwestrider yea, moguls are bumps. but there has to be a lot of bumps grouped together to make it moguls. it cant be a bump every once and a while.

groomed runs- are runs that arent bumpy and "groomed" or "trimed" maintaned to make it smooth... ok its hard for me to explain with words so heres a picture.

Nikolai moguls are the bumps that are like 2-3 feet high right? if so last year eagle had those...what then are the groomers? still new to the terminology
08-27-2007 10:41 PM
midwestrider eagle is moguls? when i was there it was groomed. i thought warpath is moguls. i might be getting the 2 mixed up.
