With out a doubt Tyrols main claim to fame is its terrain park, The tittle of "best terrain park in the midwest" is well earned. Multitudes of jumps rails and boxes (along with other oddities to jump over and "jib" on) are given constant attention by a dedicated park crew through out the day to keep all the take offs and landings fresh.
This being said Tyrol Basin does its best to accommodate all types of snow enthusiasts. The hill keeps all the terrain items on lift A leaving B and C lifts open to those of us who just enjoy taking a few turns. Granted the total elevation is only about 300 feet so you have to get the turns in fast but Tyrol does its best to turn the hill in to a mountain giving the skier/rider a multitude of different runs all with their own unique characteristics. Twister and Bumpbuster are by far my favorite two runs.
Although A lift often has a line B and C almost never do.
If you just want to come and check Tyrol out come on a tuesday (tickets and rentals are only 12$)
