Claiming most of the Chair 3 terrain, the improved Fishbowl spreads out onto two runs, allowing park designers to set up the features for smooth flow. "There's much less cluster now," says terrain park supervisor Jason Fuchs. "And we've separated levels to reduce intimidation." Savvy jumpers and rail riders should head for the advanced features on Hope Slope, while Question Mark run groups the intermediate boxes and rails. An 8-by-12-foot wall ride will be installed at the bottom of the Superpipe, once it opens. And later in the season, when ski school vacates the Easy Rider terrain for their new lift adjacent to the day lodge, Fuchs and his crew of nine will move in to build beginner hits. "With more breathing room, we're not limited," says Fuchs. "We can cater to all levels."
