3 Kings is Getting Some Big Improvements
The 3 Kings Terrain Park is sick. We all know this.
But what kind of mountain resort would we be if we weren't continually improving what’s good to make it great? That being said, 3 Kings terrain park is getting an epic facelift, and there is so much for you to look forward to this season.
First, there’s the 3 Kings Chairlift. You remember that old double chairlift servicing 3 Kings and Eagle Superpipe? Well, we hope you weren’t too attached to it, because it’s getting replaced with a bigger, better triple chairlift. This brand-spankin’ new triple is going to DOUBLE the uphill capacity of the lift and get you up the mountain quicker to jib, shred and make some hot laps through the park.
Second, we have the Cobra Dogs stand. Making its debut last year, we discovered how awesome the stand was and grew to love grabbing a quick dog after shredding. Now, thanks to its fantastic debut success, it is officially turning into a permanent Park City eating establishment. Instead of just a stand, the permanent structure will be conveniently located at the base of the new 3 Kings Chairlift. If you don’t know what Cobra Dogs is, you’re seriously missing out and need to get here as soon as the terrain park opens to check it out. Believe me.
Finally, we have the third improvement that is sure to get your appetite up for some Cobra Dogs… and it involves the Eagle Superpipe. The terrain park crew has been working to make sure this world famous superpipe can open earlier in the season. Dirt-Work efforts are in place to enhance the existing terrain and will require less snowmaking to ensure an early opening.
So, get stoked for the new improvements happening at the 3 Kings Terrain Park this season, all giving you more reasons to yell, “I Ride Park City!”
