Skiers and riders aross the country can rejoice because the 22-foot Eagle Superpipe is officially open for the 2011-2012 winter. Be prepared to see some of the biggest names in action sports, including Park City All Stars Kazu Kokubo, Torah Bright, Joss Christensen and Tanner Hall training in the pipe this season.
“This is one of earliest dates that we’ve opened the superpipe with perfect timing right before the holiday season,” said Jeremy Cooper, terrain park manager at Park City Mountain Resort. “Obviously the dirtwork we did this past summer gave us a good jumpstart, however the hard work of our talented snowmakers, groomers and pipe cutter is what creates a pipe that lives up to its reputation as one of the best in the world.”
If you are unable to get to the mountain, you can watch all the Superpipe action live 24/7 via the Resort’s “Cobra Cam,” located at Cobra Dogs at the base of the Eagle Superpipe and 3 Kings Terrain Park.
In the days leading up to their walk down the ESPYS Red Carpet, olympic gold medalists Sage Kotsenburg and Joss Christensen jetted around the country with the Woodward Team. The private jet stopped at Woodward Copper so the pros could shred the summer snow terrain park, then off to Woodward Tahoe to skateboard, bounce on tramps and high-five some campers along the way. The adventure ended in Los Angeles at the ESPYS where both athletes were nominated for Best Male U.S. Olympic Athlete. At the end of the night, Sage took home the honors adding an ESPY to his trophy collection. Go to WoodwardTV.com for more!
Camp Woodward will welcome the first-ever Olympic gold medalists in men's slopestyle to the Woodward Copper camp in Colorado on July 14th and Woodward Tahoe on July 15th. The two Olympic slopestyle gold medal winners will lend their expertise this summer to campers this summer at Camp Woodward. Campers will get the opportunity to hang out, train and grab photos with both Joss and Sage. There is still time to sign up for the summer camps. If you can't make these dates and there are always pros dropping in.
The Holy Bowly continues to rock and the pros are coming out of the woodwork to join in this progression bonanza!

The Sochi Games are just days away, and while we'll be rooting hard for every Team USA athlete - from the curlers to the figure skaters - we'll be cheering especially hard for 2 athletes in particular: because they're our very own! Slopestyle snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg and slopestyle freeskier Joss Christensen are both Park City locals and both part of "I Ride Park City" All Stars. Both will be in medal contention, and we couldn't be prouder to have them as representatives to the world both of our mountain and their hometown of Park City.
