Colorado Terrain Parks - What's your favorite?

Location?  Snow conditions?  Early season opening?  Built more for skiers or snowboarders?  Why do you like terrain park that you go to the most?  :dunno    http://www.facebook.com/groups/PARKSCENE/

Wish US ski areas had a park scene about 45 years ago.;)  Every time we'd build a little kicker back in the day the ski patrol would mash it down.  I don't get much air time anymore, but I like to make a pass through park and pipe areas at major resorts just to scope them out or watch others do nice tricks.

Very cool training session for Steamboat competitive mogul skiers.

 

Very robust/wide terrain park at Beaver Creek:

Yeah kinda funny how we got busted by patrol for building jumps 20 years ago.  Now the ski areas build them for the public.  Times and attitudes change, don't they?
