It’s Still Summer But We’re Getting Ready…
We hope your enjoying a great summer! It seems to be flying by way too fast. We’re starting to do some of the “get ready for winter jobs” around here now. The trails are being mowed and we did some work moving the big rails in Oxbow Park. Last year the park was a bit random so this year we are trying to make three distinct lines with the features so you can get more hits out of a run. We’re also moving the starting ramp back farther to make more room. The goal is to better utilize the natural terrain with the features, make it so we can get the park open faster with less snowmaking, and have a better park. Thanks to those of you who wrote-in with ideas on how to improve the parks. We’ll keep working to make them better.
