Stone mountain is not a state park. If it were a state park, it woulnd't be filled with all those useless, annoying tourist attractions.



I think a small to medium turf mountain could make a decent amount of money put in the right area. For atlanta:Right near discover mills mall. They could use an existing hill to help build up the mountain. They could build a few runs too. Like ones with moguls and steeper slopes, beginner areas and a massive terrain park.



Putting a fake turf halfpipe and filling it with snow when its available won't work. Once the snow is put on it, especially on the top, steep part, it will just slough off. I don't understand why everyone wants a pipe so much or even thinks it is possible. Having a pipe in the southeast wont work. It requires to much snow, and without a pipe dragon to cut it and make it nice, it won't be fun to ride. It will just be really icy and sketchy like snowshoes pipe.

For those that don't know, Wayne has this nifty watch that is a wrist worn weather station and navigational system. I tried to lift it from him today, but he never would hold my hand............
