Terrain Park Update – 1.4

New Year, new features! If your resolution is improving your jibbing and jumping skills, boy-oh-boy does the terrain park crew have something a’ cooking! A New Year addition to the Sweetwater terrain park is the 3-pack medium jump line. With progression in mind, it could be time to start stepping up your air game. North Pole terrain park continues with its surfy, flowy features; waves, multiple-takeoff jumps and, my personal favorite, a jump through two stands of trees with a hitching-post jib served up on the side.

Sweetwater Terrain Park

What to look forward to; a jump line has gone in on the skiers-left of Sweetwater. Size goes as follows; 20ft, 20ft, 25ft. They give a nice little boost off the lip. After testing these jumps, I’ve got to say that they are the perfect size for progressing to bigger jumps, and bigger tricks. Float a 360, squeak a 720, throw a comfortable rodeo, or toss out a big ole’ floaty backscratcher to the adoration of the folks flying by on DC. Also, new on the roster is a monsterous 30ft kink rail.    

North Pole Terrain Park

What to look forward to; The North Pole swell has remained consistent with wave-like features, volcano bowls, and beginner boxes. Just so things didn’t get a little too zany, a traditional 10ft tabletop has been added at the end of the park to cap off the top-to-bottom line with some hangtime. The field-goal jump between two stands of trees is the real crowdpleaser, though; it feels like a well-crafted sidehit, except that the landing is groomed and the takeoff is professionally-shaped by Grand Targhee’s own terrain park crew.
