SLUG Games: Shred the Park After Dark
On March 10, 2012, Utah’s finest Night Owls will shred and grind the night away at the second and final SLUG Games contest of 2012. For the second year in a row SLUG Games will host a night contest at Park City Mountain Resort under the lights in the 3 Kings Terrain Park. The contest’s course, built by terrain park manager Jeremy Cooper and the Park City Park Crew, will feature wall rides, jumps, boxes as well as Utah’s finest shredders and skiers.
"I'm super excited to work with Park City again to host another installment of the SLUG Games! Last year’s success proved to the local ski and snowboard community how much fun a night contest can be. I expect nothing less from this year’s Shred the Park After Dark," says SLUG Games team manager Mike Brown.
Registration is free, opens at 2 p.m. day of the contest at Park City Mountain Resort and will close at 4 p.m. Discounted lift tickets will be available for competitors. Please arrive early, as registration will cap at 100 entrants. If capacity for the contest is reached before 4 p.m. registration will close at that time. The competition begins at 4:30 p.m. All levels of competition are welcome. Divisions include men’s brackets for skiing and snowboarding, which will be subdivided into amateur and open categories, as well as a women’s open ski and snowboarding division. Prizes will be awarded to 1st - 3rd place competitors. Helmets required.

3 Kings was set ablaze this past week and the park crew kept us guessing as to what sweet feature would be put in next. Enjoy our 50th opening week!
It was a crazy good time for the opening of Neff Land - check these pix out if you don't believe us.
Saturday evening was a perfect night to grab a chair under the stars on Town Lift Plaza and catch the world premiere of our original snowboard film, "IRPC" - and it turns out a whole lot of you agreed. Chairs went early and our crowd spilled into standing-room-only sections around the plaza deck before overflowing back onto Town Bridge over Park Ave. What a crowd! The film, shot entirely in the terrain parks at Park City Mountain Resort, proves anything is possible when it comes to the creative riding going on here. Did you miss the film's debut, or just can't wait to see it again? "IRPC" will be released in sneak peek edits, once a week through October, right here at the blog before posting in its full length November 1. Check it out!
Utah has always been known as a state that breeds talented rail slayers. The Friday Night Jib Fights series showed that there is no changing of the guard in the future. These kids are determined and know how to drop some hammers.
