Okay cool I'll definitely have to check it out. I think App (Appalachian Ski Mountain) might be a little farther for you. They are both fairly equal distances for me I think. Just to let you know, from what I here, App is pretty awesome for park compared to other NC places. They actually have 3 parks. One of which is a Burton Progression park. It's basically a Burton built/sponsored beginner park that's really cool for someone like me just starting out learning freestyle.

Yea 5400ft, I didn't pay attention to the number I just knew NC runs were short hah.

As long as you're having fun, that's the name of the game!

I grew up in Morganton and never got on a snowboard until I moved to CO.
