The season is back in effect and we were able to open the park much earlier than ever. Although we didn't have ideal temperatures to make a substantial amount of snow, we were still able to build a full run of features from top to bottom in record time.  Some brand new features have made their debut in the park, including a 27ft fat snowmaking tube, a 16ft A-frame box, and 16ft flat box. The trail is designed to maintain a fun flow with many rollers and berms. The new boxes are designed specifically for beginners and is perfect to learn on. Here is the list of features from top to bottom:

27ft down tube
15ft jump
small berm
large berm
25ft up flat box
16ft A-frame box
16ft flat box
24ft down rail
20ft jump
Medium berm
3 rollers in succession
15ft table top
20ft hlat rail roller 

Looking ahead to the future, we plan to make snow when possible next week to build bigger jumps to fill out the trail. After that, we expect to modify the park every week for the rest of the season. Tune in every Friday to get the update on our weekly modification and conditions. Please enjoy some photos and a video filmed and edited by Alex Shea. Happy shredding, we are looking at some great temperatures and conditions for the weekend.
