21. Terrain. The truth is, we don’t have much. I’ve been hunting for 22 years and still am. It’s not like Baker where you can launch straight off every chairlift, but that’s what makes it worth it. When you actually do find a good zone, it makes it that much more worth it. It’s like one of those inspirational quotes where people talk about how working for it makes it worth it. Super inspiring, ok.
22. Perfect parks. The parks are so good that kids dont ride anything else. They just go to the park day in and day out, even on pow days. I feel like snowboard parks kill snowboarding’s soul more and more everyday, but they sure are fun.
23. High speed chairlifts. The terrain may be mediocre, but you sure can get up to that mediocre run super fast!
24. Traveling. When you travel outside of Colorado and ride other resorts you realize that it’s not that good in Colorado. It’s good incentive to travel the world and ride other places besides your home resort.
