State of the Parks: Friday, December 2
First and foremost, how awesome is it to have the hike park right at the top of the Chondola? Pretty. Darn. Awesome. Our parks crew has been hard at work to turn this terrain into a jibber's paradise on Lower Downdraft. As a result of their efforts, we now have seven jibs set up and the word on the street is that it's riding phenomenally.
