Mt. Sima offers early season training on 300 vertical meters of varied terrain serviced by a fixed grip quad chair with a 10 minute ride to the top.

The terrain park is set up so that you can train on everything in one run, from top to bottom, as the features get progressively bigger. The Big Air can be hit after the Upper and Lower park. We offer sled access to Big Air and Triple Jump Lines. This lets athletes get more laps in each day and builds a quicker progression. Sleds are limited to 3 per site to maximize quality and minimize congestion. Sled bookings are on a first come first serve basis and must be booked in advance.
