I haven't been to an event there yet; but from everything I've heard and seen, SkiBowl is a great venue. Probably no big name pros at that one - - they'll have moved on to WC, GES and other ProGRT races. PA was special because it was West Coast just the weekend after Sea Otter and no schedule conflicts; made it easy for a lot of the factory teams to show up.
Parking situation should be much better since it's a ski resort. I did hear that they limit you a bit all the same: you can camp in the parking lot but you can only take up a vehicle-width (tent/vehicle have to be in line). That's just from what I heard last weekend.
Also, the first SkiBowl race of the season is supposed to not be as good of a course because there's still too much snow higher up, so it can't go from the top on the more demanding trails. Bear in mind, this is all from stuff I have heard and read over the years, not first-hand experience. Your best bet is to check over on RM, both on the Downhill forum and the PNW - - or even PM Scott (ods) over there and ask him.
