As mentioned earlier today in another thread on DCSki, terrain parks are now a part of the snow area scene. What really irritates is when a great ski/snowboarding trail is taken over by a park that in my observations, very few customers use.
Terrain parks are fine, just build new slopes for them, or place then on one side of a major wide trail with a rope tow or some other lift servicing only the park.
Maybe Roundtop got a similar message from their regular customers.
While at Seven Springs on a couple of crowded days last season I could not help but notice the scarcity of folks in the half pipe and using the features in their primary terrain park, while the other trails were full of folks.
