Snowboarders and freeskiers threw hammers for over 90 minutes, trying to outdo each other on a massive 85-foot jump while a hyped crowd watched below.

History-Making Improvements Planned for Next Season

A $50 million plan that links two of the best places to shred in North America and creates the largest resort in the United States - more than 7,300 acres of rideable terrain! We're also talking a new gondola, two new chairlifts, a brand new restaurant and a bunch of other upgrades that will totally change our skiing and riding game. And we're not wasting any time - the plan is to have these upgrades in place for NEXT SEASON.
