Freestyle and slopestyle training
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.

- 2 to 3 large rails leading to triple jump line
- One step down jump, 2 step over jumps 20 to 40 ft
Big Air Site

Banked Slalom Track
15 turn banked slalom with a start section. Formed with dirt work to allow for early opening dates.

Ready when you are
November has arrived and while other hills anxiously wait for their first snowflake, our snow-building experts are pitching the posts and smoothing down the tracks. Your team can be warmed up and racing laps before most have even pulled out their gear.
