US Snowboarding Training Ground
The pipe has been up and running for a few weeks now. I'd say that it's pretty good by some of the pro riders who are training here. The word on the street is that the big names in snowboarding are planning on being in the area for a while, including Louie Vito, Steve Fisher, Shaun White, Gretchen Bleiler, Hanah Teter, Kelly Clark, Greg Bretz, Clair Bidez, Ellery Hollingsworth, and Elijah Teter. Riding 3 Kings is even more entertaining these days. Here is a video Park City Snowboard Team Head Coach Andy Coghlan shot yesterday of Louie Vito.

I just wanted to give everyone an update on the Terrain Parks. Middle Jonesy's, Pick n' Shovel, and the Eagle Superpipe are now open. The Middle Jonesy's Park is our beginner park. It has 5 jumps and 5 jibs. Pick n' Shovel has 5 jumps and 8 jibs.
SUPERPIPE UPDATE: THE EAGLE SUPERPIPE WILL OPEN FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2009. THE PIPE NEEDS ONE MORE FULL DAY OF PREPARATION IN ORDER TO MEET OUR QUALITY STANDARDS.
