    I think that's the intent, though crossing the base area might be a bit of a hike.

    And I'm just spitballing from a very long way away. Mostly I follow this thread because of that same openness.

    Turning towers/dragging sleds is a crew problem, not the gun's fault. We have tower mounted big air and I see the same problem. As for refreshes, if there isn't a base deficit I'd usually rather see...

    I'm not totally familiar with the backend but I'm assuming like most resorts the limit at marginal temperatures is compressed air, not water. This changes as the wetbulb drops. New low energy guns...

    If I remember right, Sidewinder had just opened but not as a park - that was a treat. Plus the powder just kept coming down all day long.
