something like this, but bigger:
more creative topography. have some side walls, off angle jumps, drops, etc. also overall it would be nice to have more fluid runs, instead of trick 1, trick 2 ... trick 5, done; but I can see how that would be a lot harder to judge. in that case replace the judges with an applausometer

More style oriented judging
Better jib sections
Maybe add a small quarterpipe or something at the bottom?
That's all I can think of off the top of my head

I understand what you're talking about. It seems like most major competitions have like 2 des of rails then like 3 jumps, going from smallest to biggest. I love how snowboarding is still progressing, but they really can't go too much bigger! Haha well I definitely want to see longer runs and let the riders have more choices. The thing is, when its not totally set in stone, the judging is going to get interesting. If they start to change the slopestyle courses I believe we may actually see some new faces winning besides Mark, Stale, and Torstien. They are basically all on top right now. Though I think longer runs that have more rails are going to help Torstein out more than hurt him!
Slopestyle needs some change course wise because its been the same for a while. The Dew Tour never fails for me though. Their courses are on point!

What do you want to see in slopestyle courses?
I think we all understand slope style is just starting to get a bit repetitive and a bit boring. Unfortunately, every course has in it's roots the same set up. I know the builders of these courses (snowpark tech) can do some more innovative things, judging by their great builds at places like bear mountain and 7 springs. What is something new you would like to see in these courses?
I'd like to see these courses being a lot longer - more options, more lines, maybe fuse street and slopestyle and put a street section after the jumps - Snowboarders are often pressed to do the rail section up top as quick as possible to hit the jump line with the most speed, and maybe a street section at the bottom would allow them to slow down and do some stylish, innovative tricks instead of the every day 270 out. Maybe a really nice handplant on a big sexy wall. Thats my 2 1/2 cents, put in yours?
