    Any way we can just cancel the snow? Seriously, this park needs to stay open all year round.

    So got the chance to ride Rainmaker today and what a blast! Yes I know I didn't clear most of the jumps but it was my first run down and still could use a few people + rain to help groom it in more but oh well got a video for people to see it anyway.

    Thanks! Hit about 50% of the jumps on my second run but turned the camera off instead of on LOL.

    That looks sweet. I'll be hitting that up on Sunday! The WP people are doing a great job expanding the terrain. Be all you can be is sick.

    nice footage Joe, I just hit it up a couple times and it gets better every lap. Give it a couple days of no rain and a few more riders and the trail is going to be EPIC! Just dropped the mini ex into the next section (short) and then will be heading up to Five Points to start from there and connect to the top of the existing Rainmaker (jump trail). Watch for maintenance all over the place in the next week and keep your eyes out for some new features in the next couple weeks. Think big, near vertical curvy wood features to help accelerate you through a couple slow turns. Should be done before Crankworks. BTW... Slopestyle and Dual construction started today!!

    Sounds like good things in the making. You guys are doing good work out there. It already looks faster and way more packed in than it was on Wednesday.
