^Actually, it's not a batwing. It's a Pretzel Knot, an element that was only used once before on Moonsault Scramble.  :) ;)

Difference being that the 2 'half-corkscrews', cross paths, instead of remaining independent of one another.

Just been on the live view cam and it seems to be covered. However when I went to their twitter they have just tweeted a picture of snow covering the park and construction site. I wouldn't of thought any track would go up today but we shall see :)
