More Pictures from JJ

Here are some more photos of the Jungle Jib. We can't wait to start the holiday week. Night skiing every night this week, and Timberline is open for the season. All sorts of holiday

Jungle Jib Open for 10-11

We did it! We finally have a park up. There were some bumps along the way, but we were otherwise successful. The set up is not the original plan; a pump broke while snowmakers were in the Jungle Jib, hence there was not nearly enough snow for what we intended. Nonetheless, we came up with some quick ideas, and worked through the night to have her ready for the weekend. A special thanks goes to our Mountain Manager Harold; we would be lost without his fine tuned shaping skills. Here are some pictures of our set up, unfortunately the light is flat, but I think you get the idea. As Head Park Ranger Wilkins would say “Ya dig?!” We do.


While we are waiting to start on our parks, I thought I'd give everyone a heads up about how we will be operating this year. Instead of parks opening as lifts open, the park crew will be opening the parks after they are checked and maintained. This is becoming an industry standard, and is a way to ensure the safety of our riders. We know how much you jones for fresh hits in the morning, so we promise to work hard and fast.


Updates: the snow makers are working their way down from the top of the mountain for opening day Friday; the plan is to start making snow in the Jungle Jib by Monday. Our hope is to have it open for the weekend of the 18th. Meanwhile hit up all the nice untouched pow on Friday!

We're Back!

Finally after a long summer the Park Crew is officially rehired for the season. We have some guys returning this year and two new hires. Right now we are waiting for opening day. It is still questionable whether or not there will be a park on opening day. As soon as the Mountain Manager gives us the word, we will be building.
