Paul Mitchell Progression Session Big Air Wraps Grand Prix Day #1
A big first day of competition at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix Halfpipe in the superpipe was capped off in the biggest way possible - the Paul Mitchell Progression Session Big Air. 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.
Riders impressed the judges and crowd alike, showing everyone exactly why the event is called the Progression Session.

Stay tuned as we keep you updated all week as the Grand Prix Halfpipe events continue. Tomorrow, the freeskiers get their turn to battle for spots in Saturday's final.
We put together a stairset to match the one on the Sochi Winter Games slopestyle course. It looks like practice makes perfect.
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.
There's no right or wrong way to hit this thing.
The Pole Jam will let you get silly in every which way.
We open November 23rd and we hope you guys are ready to shred! Come check out the sweet features this weekend off of 3 Kings Lift. It's all about those early season hammers!

The season might be winding down at Park City Mountain Resort, but that doesn't mean the park isn't in full force. Some might even say that the park is the best it has been all winter. Watch as Blaze Kotsenburg, Griffin Seibert, Caleb Flowers, Ozzy Henning, Spencer Schubert, Scotty Arnold, Scott Stevens, and Brandon Hobush show you just how much fun a slushy park and pipe can really be.
After completing all 9 stops, the guys at Transworld named us the Premier Resort of this year's TransAm series - and we're stoked on it. Get a look at what the fuss is all about.
