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.
The new double jump line is in prime form along with the entire 3 Kings Park. Watch Dale Talkington, Colin Collins, Andy Partridge, John Ware, Karl Fostvedt, Nicky Keefer, Steve Stepp, Ryan Wyble, Tyler Barnes, Tim McChesney along with Park City All Stars Joss Christensen and Tom Wallisch enjoy all that Park City has to offer!
Park City All Stars Tom Wallisch, Alex Schlopy, Joss Christensen and Tanner Hall have been charging hard this past month in the 3 Kings Park. With a handful of solid features at their disposal, the crew have been making hot-laps galore—putting on a show for all in the vicinity.
Here's a look at the good times and damn good skiing that took place during opening week at Park City Mountain Resort.
