For many years the title of the best terrain park in the Pacific Northwest belonged to Stevens Pass, but for the past two seasons that title has unfortunately been vacated.

What used to be a fully loaded top to bottom run featuring creativity, flow, and various features for all levels of riders is now an enormously wasted space on the mountain.

When you look at the natural grade of Brooks (where the terrain park used to be) it couldn't be setup any better. There are natural rollers, width to include all of the features the Top Phlight crew has built over the years and most importantly; length. The length allowed the park to be spread out so that a flow could be established and speed could be carried at whatever level a rider desired. If you wanted a set of 8 increasingly large jumps in a row, it was there. Feel like riding off to the side and hitting a few rails on the way? No problem. It was perfect, everything a new or seasoned park rider could desire.

Two seasons ago, a high speed quad chairlift was put in to replace the aging two seater that Brooks utilized for so many years. This was great move, efficiency is key. After installing that lift the decision was made to move the terrain park to Hogsback, and this is where things went wrong. Hogsback is way too short, steep, and narrow to accommodate a well built terrain park. 

The thought process behind moving the park was to increase overall mountain efficiency and provide another beginner area, but the opposite has happened. On any given day Brooks is likely the least utilized lift, especially in terms of people to mountain area usage. Hogsback is almost always the busiest which makes it impossible for people to get any sort of consecutive riding in at the park. What does this do? Makes the current terrain park vastly underutilized which now means two sections of the mountain are less efficient than before. 

The other side of things that I believe Stevens Pass is not considering is media presence. For a long time sponsored and pro riders/skiers would come to Stevens Pass to film and subsequently put out content. That no longer exists with the existing terrain park which means Stevens Pass is no longer being freely marketed to an enormous target market audience. Many of these riders would also come in the early/late spring when other day pass purchasers are done for the season, this means more revenue. 

Moving the terrain park back to Brooks would create vastly better mountain efficiency and restore one of the greatest aspects the mountain had to offer! The only hope for this campaign is for Stevens Pass Management to consider the request to move the terrain park back to Brooks, and hopefully create an open dialogue about what guests would like to see out of their home mountain.
