PC News - Vids, New Terrain, PayDay Park Revamp
Early season brings constant change to the mountain. While our snowfall so far this season has been what we're calling "localized" thanks to our snowguns and snowmakers, there is a storm in the forecast. Check out some of our localized snowstorm vids here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEG1ERDsezU) The localized storms at the resort have allowed us to continue to get new terrain open, switch up park features and provide a super fun early season sliding experience. That being said, here are the most recent updates from the resort (from an e-mail sent to our staff yesterday afternoon).

Dan Brisse has completely changed the game of urban snowboarding conquering the heaviest rail and gap setups around with a calculated and precise approach. Brisse's "Always down" mentality resonates well with the rest of the Absinthe Films shred crew including Travis Rice, JP Solberg, Bode Merrill, and Nicolas Muller. There is nothing better than having a guy pumped to shovel jumps all day only to be equally excited to hit them!
