Hidden Valley is a nice place, but during the recent Scion Open snowboard event, they made a concious decision NOT to blow snow to prepare the terrain for the event. Not sure why, since it was 6 degrees the day before? Many people traveled a long way to compete and watch the event. Several from out of state. There were herds of excited Groms roamin around waiting for some big air action....
Because of the absolutely horrible ice conditions with the features, most of the advanced contestants chose to NOT to throw down or even attempt their best stuff. Scion needs to understand that if they sponsor an event, the contestants expect a safe and well prepared venue. Many of us will probably not choose to compete next year unless this issue is addressed. People got hurt because of the lack of show. We apprecate the Scion tent, the food, free Monsters and gear, but most of us came to SHRED it down! We are serious about our sport...are you?
