    Nice job Matt, but will we ever get a terrain park event on a nice blue sky day?

    Hello Smuggs Park Crew, I would like to let you guys know that this year, the park is really lacking in creativity and quality. I understand that you haven’t really had the best 2 winters but going through birch run, probably your most popular park, today, I found myself extremely disappointed with a lack of any jumps whatsoever. I really do understand that you guys don’t have a lot of snow, but be creative, i don’t want to go through a run of all flat boxes and rails all day. Next year, i get my license, and i know that me and most of my friends who will also have their license’s next year, won’t hesitate to drive the extra distance to a mountain that actually has a park that doesn’t disappoint weekly. I’m telling you this, not to be mean, but to make you guys aware of how people are feeling about your parks. If you don’t make what the skiers and riders want, they’ll just leave, it’s as simple as that.

    I completely agree with Mark. I was also really upset that birch run had no jumps, until I remembered that the jumps that were there weren’t good either. The jumps in birch should be stepdowns, not tables, and should have gradual take off’s and gaps bigger than 1-2 feet. In my opinion you should have two stepdowns where the jumps usually are, the bigger one about 10 feet and the small one 5, and where the hip was, have another set of stepdowns. This would really give the park better flow, and would keep more people coming back. also, you should make the flat round metal rail a down rail, which would be more fun than it is now.
