Over the past couple of weekends, resorts from Vermont to California have been turning on the lifts enabling lines of eager patrons to get their first turns on snow of the season. With resorts opening, soon the ropes will be dropped to unveil the freshest features of 2013/14–the rails, jumps, and other obstacles that we have been waiting for since everything melted last spring. While terrain park crews across the country clock long hours welding new jibs and raking run-ins, enjoy some of our favorite park photos because some of the best images come from the trails we all lap every day.
