    The funny thing is that if you browsed the mt high forum at all, a season or two ago they would always be adamant about not getting a stair feature up. And when someone would ask, the park crew on the forums would get all defensive and upset about it.

    Does anyone know if the price of the mt high season pass goes up on the 1st of Nov? Still debating between that and a sunday-friday summit/bear pass.

    If some of my friends get a bear pass and I can get a consistent carpool up there, then definitely bear. Otherwise mt high it is.

    I noticed the park crew got defensive for any little criticism or suggestion...maybe you can move this here so the flow would be better? no! bitch bitch bitch bitch. You know you can tell me no, but give me a good reason why and just don't bitch about people not understanding how hard it is, if you don't explain.

    The high pass is supposed to go up on the 1st. It prob will unless they haven't sold close to their 5000 limit. Gonna get the bear/summit m-f pass this year. Looking forward to bear, have only been able to ride there a couple of days in the past few seasons.

    High has a tendency to overdue it with their features. They have pretty stock stuff but then throw in some 'sig' feature that most people don't hit or put it in a spot that doesn't work. I love the place, but don't understand some of their decisions. I remember their reasoning for stair features was liability issues, but now they have this monster. I doubt ill hit it, but hopefully its in a spot that works well.

    The Concert Hall rail looks pretty ambitious for something less than 10% of people who ride at Mt. High are able to hit.

     
    More like 1%...that thing is just going to sit there and take up so much space. Maybe all the good people come out on the weekdays and that's why I never see people hitting the advanced features whenever I'm up there.
    Quarterpipe might be fun to hit...but I would prefer an actual pipe...why don't they use the pipe cutter for an actual pipe and maintain that pipe.
    I want the season to start already...
    and gumby your mom is hilarious!!!

     

    The only people that are going to hit that staircase are sponsored kids or wannabe sponsored kids and that equates to very little of the overall attendance. Maybe the belief is by featuring these gnarly features in ads and videos, the average boarder gets pumped to go even though they can't hit those features?

    And the reason for no pipe is no one will hit the pipe (except you).

    do they have something like that at bear? Maybe they are trying to compete. I know Baldy doesn't jack squat for park features.

     Southwest raised flights from SD to Reno and Sac to $65 already. So much for $35 dollar flights.

    Really? That blows...$65 is still cheap, but meh extra money I don't need to spend.

    So are we driving up for Tahoe on the 12/16ish? What resorts are we thinking of going to?

    Those two hips are the best! I got the weekday pass but I recently got a 3 12s shift so I'm all set for midweek riding. You're def gonna need to upgrade.

    I have to agree with this statement!

    I have to go to a wedding that Sunday but I think I might fly in and ride on Sat and take off Sat or Sunday morning.

     thanks for the heads up! booked a flight to sf to visit the city. not sure if ill have time to go out to tahoe but 35 was an awesome deal.

    completely agree as well with the mt high feature. i think they did it to get more film crews out there. even then, its not like more pros would make the drive out to mt high just to hit that feature and be disappointed with the rest. the bigass staircase just doesnt flow with the rest of the features. its like we have a mammoth caliber feature on a 20x smaller mountain.

    wouldve rather had them make 10 legit features instead of one bigass one.

    Well I'm going to use it for climbing up the mountain when the lifts are too crowded. It is a staircase.

    This cold weather is making it harder and harder for me to not think about snow and winter.

    I booked my flight last night. Flying into Reno at 10am on Friday, renting a car and heading to whatever resort. Maybe Mt. Rose? I guess save Northstar for Saturday?

    It sounds fun, saw on nerd-book you scored some cheap (free?) lodging.

    We are starting to house shop, so I am seeing in dollar signs a lot lately....not sure if I will make it OUT of the PNW this season or not....

    haha thats a neat idea. i might consider hitting the feature on a pow day when the stairs are covered and the rail is half a feet off the snow.

    and yeah! i need snow to fall already. my old room mate moved to CO and he's been boarding for 2 weeks now
