They had other boxes and rails higher up on the terrain park. As far as snow depth goes, it's had for me to judge since i'm still very new. I can say that there were no visible rocks, and my board didn't have any scratches after a full day of riding.

powder runs all day! it was snowing until around noon, so I wasn't able to get any good pics. The park guys were setting up (mainly rails) the entire day, so chances are they'll be open by tomorrow. If you make it out you guaranteed to have a good time.

Got tomorrow off work so i'll be heading up to sunrise for opening day. Snowbowl said they'll be 100% open so I was thinking of going up there over the weekend.

As far as park features go, the live cam doesn't show anything in the works as of yet, but I'll let you know what I see tomorrow.

Although why the fuck are they not opening sooner???? Lazy bastards! They could easily open by monday or tuesday but of course not....why give the customers that fresh pow they have been waiting 8 months for??

And ya dude Id be pissed if I were you, Snowbowl barely updated their website even though they got 10"...im guessing this is because they are still not close to opening.

Which is why ive never bought a season pass while living here because you can just never tell. Not to mention my epic pass was cheaper than the sunrise or snowbowl pass! And its for 8 mountains!

Apparently they STILL havent finished the snowmaking construction or else they could have opened after that 1st storm we had.

The high speed lifts will be a HUGE upgrade and hopefully they can get one to the top of the bowl so we dont have to hike to it.

Big thing about the snowmaking is they will finally be able to have a good jump line all season...their park crew is better than sunrise but they haven't had the conditions to keep it steady most years. Supposedly they are getting a half pipe at some point too but I dk where they think they will put it....

Pretty cool too that ALL their rentals this year will be Never Summers.


Although even with all the upgrades I think Sunrise will still be the place to be.
And for snowbowl, wft is up with the construction delay. I'm one of the few that got caught in the "we'll be making snow and opening early hype" / regretting my season pass purchase.
