linvillegorge Makes sense. That's a lot of time, money, and effort spent on building a course for an event that quite frankly not many people give a rat's ass about.

killclimbz Beating a dead horse here a little bit, but looks like BA is dead on again as usual.

Boarder X has been dropped from the X Games.

Snowboarder X and Skier X dropped from X Games - ESPN

Can't say I am surprised. I'm sure the Olympic organizers are pissed, but they have never gotten it anyway.

Since im new to the NW, where is Louise?

Also, since I work from home, I think ill be hitting the slopes during the week (mon-thur) for less people around (hopefully) compared to a weekend...and seeing whats available to ride. Mainly 1st part of the season I'll be breaking in a new board just riding casual an what not.

Thanks for all the advice!

P3 Mammoth The problem with a permanent boardercross course is logistics. The course takes up A LOT of square footage and has the lowest usage of any features in a terrain park setting. We had a full time course at Mammoth for years that was used for USSASSAAASSSSAAAAUSSA (whatever it is now) events. That was one of the least used runs yet had one of the higher maintenance costs of any run on the mountain. The course still has to be perfect for the 10 people a day/week that might actually use it as a BX run.

Boardercross has been a part of the scene for twenty years and saw it's heyday in the late 90s into the early 00s. Since then it has been in a steep decline. The olympics and f-games have done NOTHING to improve the participation in this aspect of snowboarding. As evidenced by the fact that the two things people still bring up about BX are Rippey(backflip) and Lindsey(epic fail.) Nothing notable in the sport since 2006 basically.

Like has been posted before- If you want that feeling then group up with a few buddies and barge your local park run hitting all of the features at speed without slowing down or stopping.

The White Pass course is probably right up your alley then. They have a race on it. The last 2 years it's been at the end of the season. Somewhere around March or April. They also don't build the course until they are almost ready for the event.
