The Run Down

Night Event

The Rails for Ryan event went great. Thanks to all of the participants that braved the cold weather. The cold temps make for good park surfaces but remember to bundle up and stay warm.

3rd Annual Rails for Ryan

This Friday in front of the Base Lodge we will be hosting our benefit for the Flyin’ Ryan Foundation. The event starts at 6:00 pm and goes until 8:00¬†pm. Registration starts at 4 in the afternoon at the Base Lodge. For more details see our events page.
On another note we have been getting alot of snow. We have been busy digging features out and keeping them ridable. Due to the amount of soft snow we noticed that the in run ramp for the Zone was becoming a challenge. So we built it up to increase your run in. This should allow for easier clearing of the jumps. Don’t forget about Knights Revenge, with all of the powder it is riding great.

Snow!

We have been getting snow storm after snow storm making for great conditions. We have been busy trying to get the parks dug out and have completed a new set in Playground, including a couple of progression hips and a small intro box. Birch Run will see some slight changes throughout the week. We will be adjusting some of the ramps and a few rails as well as giving the jumps a bit more pop.

Birch Run Done

We finished tuning the upper end of Birch Run today. Look for a couple progression boxes and some updated rails, including our rainbow box. We also squeezed in another jump for a total of three. We will be focusing on the Zone in the coming days and adding some rails to the upper side of that and increase our feature count in playground.

The Zone

board-and-snow-Zone-012415The Zone and Prohibition Parks are now open! We fine tuned the hits in the lower Zone this morning and they are riding nicely. There are two sets of jumps below mid T-Bar and we set them up so the flow is effortless. Prohibition has a couple of progression rails and some snow features, we will add more to these parks in the coming weeks. We plan on putting rails in the upper Zone area soon.

Snow!

We have been getting a nice portion of wet snow. This means that Knights Revenge should start to ride nicely. Birch Run will remain the same for the week and we will look at adding snowmaking and different features next week. The Zone is under construction so be patient. It takes time for the snow to set up to allow us to create the landing we need. Look for a Zone opening sometime this weekend. Log Jam is holding up nicely and we have a couple more rails we will install shortly.

Log Jam

Snowmaking is complete in our Log Jam Park. Our operators have been busy and we will be opening the trail for Friday! We will have a couple of small boxes installed as well as a serpentine and rolls to start. We will add more items in there within the week. The new snow has added up and our Birch Run Park is holding up nicely. There will be more snowmaking in there soon as well, this should allow us to create some better features. The Zone is under attack by snowmaking and that will be completed soon.

The Zone

We have begun the initial phase of the Zone. Snowmaking will be adding more product to some areas so we can complete the jumps on the lower half. There will be some changes with the spacing of the hits this year. Our goal is to make a set of three consecutive jumps that are grouped evenly to create an even flow.
