    Anyone have an idea when ruined castle park usually opens? Iv booked a trip around the 12th of July and really hoping it will be open.

    They cant even keep Ruined constantly open was closed on Wednesday. Fat chance for opening the park. Snow cover really thin there.

    Likely to be open by then. Will need a bit more and the chance of at least 2 systems before then is good.

    Bit late but increasingly they're not bothering to build it until later in the season from what I've noticed. Choosing to put moderate features on the intermediate Drovers park. Honestly, the Ruined park is empty or barely used most of the time so I can see why they don't bother in the early season. Still nothing there as yet.

    RC park is a PITA. Cuts off a good run at st elmos. And they play music that you have to suffer on the lift and for a fair distance around the area.

    I can deal with it being built and open for the comp and late season, but building in July was just ridiculous. They've recognised this.

    Personally I think they would be better off leaving drovers a true beginner park and having the intermediate park at Ruined as soon as snow allows. Doesn't need to have the expert jumps at Ruined till later in the season but I think it would be better keeping the better riders away from beginners/kids in the Drovers park.
