Donutz this is the outcome I would like to have happen.
Lucky, this is Alpine Valley. The park last year was brutal. The crew did try and they did build a cool hip jump that I loved. This is not about the lack of snow. Rather the lack o of maintenance or up keep of the park and the total lack of features. Memory is a bit slow but I think they only had one box. There were a bunch of features lying around the side of the hill, literally, and a few more near the maintenance building.
The features that were up were mainly for advanced park riders. The canon pipe and an incredibly dangerous flat landing area. The whale tail landing was a sheet of ice, the battleship rail was set onto a huge platform placing it another 3 feet up and if you came off it you would also crash off the platform the rail was mounted into.
The jump line was pretty good but for a long time the 1st jump had a pretty decent sized booter coming to a very flat landing, pain in deed.
I'm just trying to ask for a park that many people can enjoy not just the advanced riders. Install some of the other features that we know they have. Make some decent lines to hit features down the entire run. They have made a huge capital investment in the form of the new lift but as you know if you ride there, lift tickets and passes are not cheap.
Here are a few pics of the common features we had to ride last year and it looked like this most of the season
If you look close behind the kink you will see the cannon pipe
This is the rail I learned to ride rails on, I actually had a lot of fun learning on this. This one was only up for about 2 weeks before they took it down
I learned how to ride an up-down
I hope these added details help and don't come off as whining. I am not a park rat, and am new to park. I still now decent setup's and maintenance when I see it, or not.
