I'd love it if we had a park pass. Instead we get yelled at for going through the park entrance too fast because the park crew doesn't know how to build a drop in and run up correctly and its the only way to get speed to clear the gully on the knuckle made by newbs coming up short.

I don't like the idea of a park pass that you have to pay for. It screws over the people that are not regulars and are just visiting the mountain. Also, it makes it harder for me to ride with my friends. Some of which don't care too much for the park and don't wanna ride in it if they have to pay extra. I agree that it is important to keep the idiots out of the park, because they definetly pose a danger. However, a video is probably a better way to go then just making people pay.

I think if you don't support some kind of park restriction you're one of the people who shouldn't be in the park. I don't know how big parks are out west but here on the small mountains of the northeast there isn't enough room for everyone.

I say we make park entry not only open to all, but manditory in addition. So I have something funny to watch while I ride the chair up... Why is it so much more fun to see someone yard sale vs stick a good landing? Maybe its just science (boring but a part of my life).

You won't do it.

I wish we had one of these at my local hill so bad. Half the people in the park there are retarded. A bunch of people snake me, and some people just ride through the middle of the park and don't even hit anything, but the worst is the people that sit down and are in your way...

I think it's a great idea. I know years ago the idea was being floated around for the larger parks to have a pass you have to basically test into. I don't think that's a bad idea either.

Awhile ago the resort I worked at thought this would be a good idea as to start basically a slush fund for future lawsuits. They were convinced that people who got hurt in the parks were going to come back and sue them.

A bunch of the mountains around here have them - I wish my home one did. When people rent skis around here, the rental counter must also hand the customers a bottle of Stupid Pills. Skiers, for some reason, think the park is a regular trail, so there are goobers snowplowing all through the features and hanging out on the landings. They'll start using park passes when someone ends up paralyzed.

I'm for it. The park pass program seems to work well at Steven's. Considering Schweitzer is owned by Harbor Properties it's not surprising they would also try to implement a park pass program.

Boy I sure am glad they made a video otherwise those questions would have been far to difficult . Honestly I think only the truly ignorant would not know the answers to those questions. Thanks though hobo, I'm actually not sure if I'll get the pass. I only hit a couple features that were in the stomping grounds last year, will just have to do a couple ninja runs through later in the season and see if it's worth it for my park skill lvl.
