I don't go there enough to really notice anything. It is definitely a local joint and probably where most junior high and high school kid's parents buy passes for since it is right across town from the schools. That also attracts the ski clubs from local schools. I have to admit I was one of those local kids at that age at the local bump every day after school and most weekends skiing on the Freestyle Team. Not much has changed, only the tools we put on our feet.
In all fairness though, I was one of the better behaved kids and had respect for my elders, but a lot of other kids I hung out with did not. I guess that is why Appalachian seems quite normal to me. Still the terrain (<400 vert) is also typical of an suburban Midwest dump so I usually only go there at then end of the season when they are the only place left with decent coverage. And, by then most of the local punks are at the skateboard park.
