Introducing The Ridge
Sorry we've been slacking a little bit on the blogging these days. We've were a little busy gearing up for the Grand Prix and then the wrap up that follows an event of that scale. Thanks to all of you who came out to see the Eagle Superpipe graced with Olympic greatness. We'll be cheering those guys on next month while they represent in Vancouver. Go Team.
Jeremy and Crew have been busy prepping the pipe for the Grand Prix. In the last few weeks they've also dozed Jonesy's and built a new park called The Ridge off the Eaglet chair...what's the Eaglet chair? It's a chair we built for the Olympics, and it hasn't been used since the Games. This summer the ops crew started talking about making it a park and well, now it is. With "The Ridge" now open, Jonsey's has no longer a park. Check it out. It's a cool new way to experience the mountain.
While our blogging action has been slow, we have up'd the anty on our electronic socialness. Make sure you fan us on facebook at Park City Parks and Pipes and follow us on Twitter @pcride. We're pretty good at 140 characters, even when we're slacking a little in the blog o' sphere!
Here's what I've learned from our facebook and twitter pages this morning -
Park City Parks and Pipes Pick and the Pipe are open again, there are 5 jumps, a box at the top, and 4 down rails; and it's supposed to be bluebird today (this is from yesterday), but it's going to be bluebird again today.
We've got a few weekends of downtime before we pick up the event madness again. February 26-27 is the King of the Wasatch and March 6 we'll be hosting "Beat the Pro" with SLUG Magazine. Check out our events calendar, for more details.
As always, if you have photos or video you'd like to share leave me a comment and we'll serve it up to all of our e-friends.
Some new things, some new to us things and the return of some old favorites. A look ahead at the 2012-2013 season!
What may possibly be the most fun mini-park on the planet opened at Park City Mountain Resort today.
"I Ride Park City" ads featured in Freeskier, Snowboarder and Transworld Snowboarding. Be sure to pick up a copy of your favorite shred publication to see them up close and glossy.
The Ridge is a blast. A fun smaller park tucked up and away with its own lift and tons of fun features for beginers and pros alike. Check out one run through with Park City All Star Aaron Biittner.
Rob Mathis pulled together more images from the filming of "I Ride Park City" webisodes. Feast your eyes on these works of art.
The parks are growing quickly up at Park City. The Eagle Superpipe and The Ridge are now open. Three Kings has added more fun jumps and countless new jibs, making for some fun times. Make sure to stop by Cobra Dogs to recharge for the day.
