The Albertsons Foundation donated it and Mt. Dew built and sponsored it.

You are in boise?! Awesome man! Good to hear! Looks like you joined a while ago but just posted for the first time here, so welcome to the forum

And yes! The new park is really freaking fun! But you are absolutly right about the snow turning brown! The second section of the park, it really was getting bad, and most of that is due to how hard people have to stop to set up for the next features due to the grade of the run. I know i ruin it pretty bad lol. Ive been working on gaping the down section of the shot gun rail ( first hit on the right of the second park section). I would like to get a grab over the down section of that rail. But to do that I need a ton of speed, and ALL of that speed has to be scrubbed off before I get to the next set of features. That results in a super hard brake that just scrapes around tons of snow, and as many riders as they had doing that...its going to turn back to dirt soon if we dont get more snow.

Me and another member here (thugit) work at the hill and are ridng there pretty regularly. Some time you should ride with us.

I'm sure if they dropped 100k into a park set-up they will use some of that to add some lights to the rest of the line

Yup. They donated it because word must have gotten around enough that we DESPERATELY needed a new park set up. As far as lights go, nope. I know that building lights wasn't in the budget for the new park. That would cost too much.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

That would not go well. First time starting park was on Saturday...I can only do all the beginner park, and then like 4 features on the big park, all of them being either boxes or bigger rails. Gonna try and get better though

And i believe the 100k was used for just the park and employees to up keep the park.

ah its alright man. As long as you can lap the park with us its no biggie. Thats whats cool about doing park with people, as long as everyone can at least hit most of the stuff its not that bad, everyone can make it as difficult as they want

And believe me i am not that great at park either. I can hit all the features in the park but one, but beyond that i dont have much. Working on board slides and lip slides and 360s, god i want to learn 360s. That first blue cannon rail at the entrance to the big park was kicking my ass last Saturday. Getting to pissed at the dam thing. Dont ever say last run, or your last run and your last last run will suck ass.

dam right it is! I can 50/50 everything fine except that street down flat down, havent tried that yet, want to dial in a few other things first. I am like i said, working on my board and lip slides. I can do a front board/lip switch out of some of the flat cannons and pipes. I can 180 off the table as well. I feel moderately cool doing a 1 off the table, riding switch to the hip they have pushed up and doing a nice slow 180 back to regular, feels cool but im sure it looks lame HAHA!

Im up there thurs and friday nights and saturday days for sure each week. Let me know when you head up, or send me a pm with your number and ill give you mine.
