I’ve never heard a good thing about NorthStar, but things can always get worse.

There’s certainly a trend with all of the resorts getting bought up by a couple big corporations. Mammoth ha lbs declined in the last couple years, last year he new trail crew at mammoth royally f*cked up the jumps on 2 of the few jump trails, they used to be nice tables, but now they have steep lips and big humps that you must clear if you don’t want to get bucked. I don’t know if it’s the ownership, shitty managers, or just morons on the trail crew. I did complain about it and was told ”those are for experts only”.
Yea when I want to Mammoth 2 summers ago Pipeline was running horribly. Some of the jumps were to easy to clear and some were to hard to clear. So you get into this start stop kind of jump line. I see this the most a Northstar because it’s closer so I ride it more.

Why can’t all mountains be Whistler?

The only people who care about creekside being closed are either from out of town or park there to access the park. Fitz is the be-all end-all of the park. Simple as that. You'll get over it about 6 jumps into a-line.

But seven year more, part of freight train and some other trail will be closed too..

Creekside has never been a big draw for me. Neither has TOTW for that matter. I'd much rather stay in the Garbo & Fitz zones. Personally, I think WB tries to promote people to ride Creekside trails to help stimulate businesses at the bottom of the hill.

Creekside is hella over rated. Build an a-line #2 there or some actual tech trails then we’ll talk. So much work was done over there for greens and light blues

You don’t consider Miss Fire to delayed Fuse to BC Trail actual tech?
