"Our park is never built on a computer," says Chestnut Mountain’s terrain park manager, Dave Geary. "Since I do all of the cat work, I usually just start pushing snow and get a feel for what feature would best fit the amount of snow and the location." Geary's goal is to always create as many different lines as possible. Expect at least one jump and 10 rails set up on opening day, but February is when all the features are really cranking.
