    Hi guys,

    Just letting you know we've launched a new website dedicated to providing you with news etc about the terrain park.

    This is version 0.00000000000000000001 - it's just a quick smash together to get something on the web - we plan to upgrade it constantly with new content (and probably a new design, as it seems some people struggle viewing it atm)...

    Anyway head on over and check it out; not much to see atm, but definitely one to pop in the bookmarks and keep an eye on! I'll update this thread when we update the website also...

    "Currently the park status is: non-existant. Damn, and you were so hopeful, hey?"

    So true!

    Great website.

    Good stuff jon, did not realise you guys had so many lifts, always assumed it was one poma or the like.

    Good luck with your efforts, you have a great website.

    Keep up the effort and let us all know how it pans out.

    Nice work guys! Love the parallax effect, works especially well with those awesome photos!

    Might want to drop modernizr.js (its included in the h5bp) in there to get those html5 elements working in IE though [​IMG]

    The site looks fantastic, is there a list of intended features we can have a peek at?

    Not really dude, it doesn't look like we will have anything in place this year thanks to the lack of snow! I can tell you though, this is what we are interested in:

    Straight rails + boxes (butter, long + standard)
    kink boxes (flat down, down-flat-down rail/box)
    c box, rainbow/dragon box, battleship box
    round box/barrels
    wallrides
    kickers

    now the area that we have proposed for the park isn't the biggest (nor is our budget!) so we will have to pick and choose what goes in when the time comes! (probably next year).. but we'll try and have a good selection of features that appeals to all skill groups..

    So what's the deal with needing to use aircraft and getting lpermissions to do so?

    How BIG are the features gonna be????

    Hey brad, it was just a condition of PWS's grant - if we need to use aircraft, we get written permission first..

    So.. most of the features are going to be between 3-6m, so we'll carry those up by hand.. the 120m metal halfpipe will need to be choppered up in sections though [​IMG]

    I've got a big angle grinder!!

    While permission may sometimes be harder to get than forgiveness, it's always best to ask first. Keeps everyone happy [​IMG]
