He explained to me that it is a pretty big maintenance task to maintain an good boardercross and we have found it is underutilized. But he liked the idea of banked slalom/boardercross terrain and said he would think about adding it in once the other parks are established.

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 17:58:16 +0000http://mountsnow.com/?p=17977#comment-30445With the Olympics this winter, will come boardercross once more to American’s TVs, The only thing Carintha is missing, (besides lower, intermeditate features) is a boardercross course. Yes, there was a Palmer course years ago and only lightly used and that trail is now well used with a park.
So why not put some banked turns on Milky Way? Still part of Carintha, has snowmaking, and way under traveled. When development sets their spring obstacle course in front of Sundance, people love to play there.
Milky Way is the perfect spot! Now if there was snowmaking on all of the Main Mountain, I’d suggest a different trail, but then it would not be connected to Carintha.
Side note….have someone check the App, Skis School, Map….it shows the clock tower as location??
Thanks for doing a great job at my mountain!

Bob a carpeted staircase works well as a preseason practice slope, but steer clear of the wooden floors!
