Improvements in Knight’s Revenge

New Bridge Rail

A couple of features got changed around this fall in Knight’s Revenge.  Gone is the broken down old bridge rail in the lower section. New is the one in the picture.  It’s been planed down pretty far to make it flatter & wider for those on skis.  There’s a little up-bumper on the end of it to give just a wee-bit of pop.

There’s been a few other minor tweaks, but rather than just ramblin’ on about it, drop in off of Link and look for them yourself! -Rabbit

Snow!

Mikes Mt Ops 019

 

 

It was cold this weekend and the ground is white from the snow. We are gearing up for another season and the tower fan gun is installed in the Zone. This will allow us to build more features on the skiers left of the trail. We are continuing our production of rails including the new wall ride that we finished fabrication on last week.

Winter is Coming

IMG_0452The weather is getting cooler and our Park staff is gearing up for another season in the Parks. Some of the upgrades this year are a new tower fan gun installed in the Zone. This should allow use to use the full width of the trail for jumps and jibs. The new building at the bottom of the zone will give us room to modify and build rails as the season progresses. New rails are already starting to take shape within it. Including a free span trapezoid and wall ride! There are more rails planned so stay tuned.

Birch Run

Due to the extreme variations in the weather we have had deteriorating conditions in Birch Run. We have spent most of Saturday trying to Rebuild all of the features but will need a couple of days to get things back in shape. We will open to the public soon however ramps to the features are less then optimal so use caution.

Final Weeks

The Pond Skim was last weekend and marks our final event of the season. The next couple of weeks we will maintain the features we have open. Keep in mind that as weather warms up there may be some features removed if they become unstable. Birch Run will stay open until our close date. Playground will most likely last until the closing of M1 and M2. The Rails in the Zone will remain as long as we can keep them there but due to the amount of snow moved for the pond it does not look like we will be able to build anymore jumps in the lower area.

Warm

Warmer weather is coming so enjoy the conditions. Birch Run is holding up great but we are expected to see some rain through tomorrow. That means Friday the trail may be under some repair. Expect a delayed opening  in some of the parks. Our plan is to keep Birch Run until the end.

Pond Skim

The Pond Skim is scheduled for April 4th . As mentioned before we will begin construction at the end of March. This means one more week of having the current hits in the Zone. If there is enough snow we will build a lower set for the remainder of the season. We will also try to keep the rails intact that were set up for the Molly Rail Jam. All of the other parks are holding up great and awaiting the spring conditions.

Molly Rail Jam

The Rail Jam to benifit the Molly Rowlee Fund went off without a hitch. We had over fifty participants and a great turnout for spectators. Thanks to all of the venders who supported the event. Our next and final event is The 3rd annual Pond Skim on April 4th.

Spring Weather 

The warmer weather is slowly making it’s way to our mountain. Conditions in the Parks are excellent. As the temps start to fluctuate keep an eye on the snow surfaces because they can change quickly. The Upper Zone will be closed for the Molly event this coming Saturday.
