New Date Announced for Sprint U.S. Grand Prix
Park City Mountain Resort has long been known as having one of the best superpipes in the world. By hosting top competitions and serving as the training ground to the best athletes in the world, the Eagle Superpipe is continuously ranked by industry publications as being the best of the best. In order to ensure the same quality halfpipe this season, we and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association have decided to reschedule the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix to February 1 – 2, 2013 (originally scheduled to be held December 21 – 22).

Get ready for some HOT snowboard action in this month's Every Third Thursday! Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew get back to the base-ics, experimenting with new technology to actually heat up the base of a snowboard and test out their theory that a hot base will go faster. Dave explains that the snow sliding action actually works from friction heating up the snow and forming a thin layer of water that the board slides on, but what if we speed up that process by incorporating a heat film into the base? Watch as Dave dials the base all the way up to 128-degrees and snowboarder Alex Cato heats up the slopes of Park City Resort.
