Rail Jam Pix

No doubt, most riders know that a rail jam is not something that can be done on two hours notice. Working in the existing terrain park, Rob and his crew of staff and volunteers started preparing for the rail jam first thing in the morning. Under Rob’s direction from the passenger seat, one of our groomers worked his magic around 9AM preparing the surface in the terrain park & creating the piles of snow needed for the features Rob had planned.
The efforts throughout the day continued as a number of people could be seen moving existing features and installing new ones’.

under the lights

Last night was our first night under the lights this year. The snow was good and the park was fun.  Here are a few pics from last night of some of the new features we have up.IMG_2021  The park all lit up and looking goodIMG_2023 Large round tube on a pyramid IMG_2026 corrugated step upIMG_2030 The step up with the quarter pipe in the Background

We’ve got snow!

The thermometer i saw today said 7 deg.  We’ll just say it was cold but that didn’t stop everyone from coming out and enjoying the fresh pow and some new features on chrysler.  Now that we have some snow and the weather is looking good for making snow it will be no time till we have the park loaded to the brim with features.  Keep checking in for more photos and updates from the park.
