Nothing wrong with being proud of your skill. I'm pretty proud of my progress this year. At 13 you're at the perfect level for learning new stuff -- all the ability of youth to snap back from just about anything, and not enough common sense to realize you're about to kill yourself

But the 3. Yeah, someday...

Big problem on Seymour is that because it's so snowboard oriented, the park crew biases all their builds towards intermediate and advanced riders. Even the so-called 'beginner' park doesn't really cater to beginners. This also means no small ramps for learning small jumps, and side hits although numerous get worn down in a hurry.

Anyway, end rant, but I'm having trouble finding a small jump to work with ever since the crew mowed down the little one off Mushroom.
How does seymour's park compare to grouse? I know cypress for sure has the most overpriced tickets + worst built park (but its very beginner friendly), but if seymour has a great park then for their cheap admission tickets I'd love to visit some time this year.

I only went to Grouse once last year, but I liked their park much better. They had like 10-foot jumps, beginner boxes on Paradise that were at snow level (no ollie, no ramp), etc. Side Cut was closed at the time so I never got a look at that park area.
