    Is everything open and up and running in the park? Boxes, rails, booters, bus etc? Is there a different set up than last year? I heard they were putting in intermediate and advanced specific areas at Ruined Castle. The cam on FC website for RC is out of order. Any pics would be great if anyone has any.

    Was there on Saturday.
    The park on Ruined was closed up until I left the area at about 2pm. Had 2 or 3 decent rails setup but closed. Plus the bus.
    Drovers had a line of three smallish but well maintained jumps open, with two boxes off to the side yet to be installed.
    With plenty of snow to push around, I’m sure it will improve daily.
    But with so much fresh snow there are natural features everywhere you turn. Plenty of wind lips and rock drops with soft deep landings.

    Ruined Castle park is up and going with some sizable jumps, the bus and a small number of rails. Didn't really pay much attention because it's not my thing.

    Advanced: kicker, flat-down or just down rail and then a flat rail
    Intermediate: 3 hits then the bus

    Drovers dream
    3 kickers then a T rail, flat down box, small box. All boxes/rails are too small to do anything special on, but there is a couple of longer boxes/rails next to the entrance so maybe when you go up they will be set up.
