The Run Down

Park Conditions

The Smart Style Terrain Park Safety Program has Four Main Messages:

  1. MAKE A PLAN
    Every time you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and take off will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
  2. LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP
    Scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know your landings are clear and clear yourself out of the landing area.
  3. EASY STYLE IT
    Start small and work your way up. (Inverted aerials not recommended).
  4. RESPECT GETS RESPECT
    From the lift line through the park.

All parks are currently in great condition. We have posted the Smart Style rules above to remind you to be careful in all of our parks especially when going off big hits like the ones in the Zone. Still waiting on some more natural snow in order to open Knights Revenge, hopefully later this week we will pick some up.

Park Updates

The Rails for Ryan event is happening tomorrow at 6:00 pm in front of the base lodge so be sure to come out and support a great cause! Birch Run, Playground, Log Jam, and the Zone are all in excellent condition going into Friday so be sure to check them out. Currently there are no rails in the Zone but that will change after this weekend, we just need to shuffle some of the rails around that we are currently using for tomorrow nights event.

The Zone is Completed

Today was our first day that the ropes were dropped in The Zone. It will be in great condition tomorrow, offering four hits of his & her jumps. Birch Run and Playground were tuned up today along with Log Jam so all of the parks will be in great riding condition tomorrow. Still waiting for some more natural snow in Knights Revenge but other than that the parks are all finished! Don’t forget to come out on Friday night for the Rails for Ryan event which starts at 6:00 pm and goes until 8:00 pm.

Log Jam is Finished

Log Jam was completed yesterday and is now officially open. It’s currently offering three boxes at the top, mini half pipe at the bottom and numerous terrain based features in between. Playground and Birch Run are still in very good condition and riding excellent. The Zone will be open tomorrow offering four smaller hits at the top and four larger hits at the bottom. The bigger hits on the bottom half are roughly 35 feet from lip to knuckle which should make for some great big air jumps. Riglet is also open now which means all of our parks will be open tomorrow! This Friday we will be having the Rails for Ryan event which starts at 6:00 pm and goes until 8:00 pm, so come out on Friday to see a great competition!

Zone Progress

We will be working in the Zone again today trying to get those hits finished so hopefully that will be completed soon. As for Birch Run and Playground they are both in good shape and holding up really nice due to this very cold weather we have been getting. Snow makers left us a good sized pile to start creation on Riglet which should be getting built sometime this weekend. As for now the two current parks that are open are riding great!

Park Conditions

The snow we picked up last night and early this morning really helped improve conditions in both Birch Run and Playground. We will be hard at work in the Zone today shaping hits and landings, but still no definite date on when that will be completed. As for now both Birch Run and Playground are riding excellent and hopefully conditions will hold up nice due to this nice weather we are getting. Happy Monday!

Playground is officially open

Playground_011614Thanks to last nights snowfall and the on-going accumulation we were able to complete Playground this morning, offering 5 features from top to bottom. The new snow really helped re-condition Birch Run and now its riding better than ever. Both parks should be in great condition heading into the weekend!

Birch Run is re-opened

After a tough couple days of inclement weather and sub par conditions in the park it is re-opened and ready to ride. We were able to change up some of the features in there and add a couple new rails/boxes that you haven’t seen yet this year. We now have 17 features from top to bottom so be sure to ride through it and let us know what you think. Construction is still on going in the Zone and that is now our primary focus.

The Zone update

We are still hard at work in the Zone moving snow so hopefully that will be ready to go soon enough, that is if the weather this weekend doesn’t make things worse. Birch Run is still fairly firm, we have been getting in there every morning grooming it so conditions in there haven’t changed much. They have been blowing snow in Playground, we widened the trail this summer so look for some new features this year once its completed. And don’t forget about our Rails for Ryan event coming up on the 31st!
