Park Report: March 9, 2014
If you haven't noticed, there is a lot, and we mean a lot, of snow being pushed around over on Rocking Chair. Why? That's home to the Near Canada Open this year, which is coming up quick. The course will include a jib-covered slopestyle minipipe, which will allow your creativity to flourish. Rocking Chair will be closed on Monday (3/10) as the parks crew work. T72 is still popping with tons of features with the Dumont Cup build going down this week. The top of T72 and the superpipe will be clsoed Monday-Thursday (3/10-3/13) for this reason. In the current layout you'll find two rail platforms with multiple jibs in the top section, the middle section boasts a 600-foot superpipe on the right and large jump line on the left, and the jib garden in the bottom section is stuffed full with over 20 jibs including the winning feature from Freeskier Magazine's Design-A-Feature Contest - an urban plaza complete with ride-through shipping container. Check the photos below and follow Sunday River Park on Instagram for the latest, and make sure to tag your shots with #T72 or #HappyPlaceFound to contribute.
Speaking of contributing, we just wrapped up our #designafeature photo contest. A big congratulations to Chris Lee, who took home first place with this great shot. Feeling inspired to work behind the camera? Good, there's still a few digital media spots open for the Woodward Mini-Camp.
You'll find mid-sized jibs and snow features on 3D, conveniently located right next to T72 on North Peak and accessable via high-speed lift, and Whoville down on South Ridge has an assortment of beginner rails plus a line of rollers and banked turns designed for the marbles.
About the Parks
T72 15-Acres of new terrain dedicated to parks. Home of The Dumont Cup.
In the summer of 2013, Sunday River cut 15 acres of new terrain to create a park-specific trail called T72. The top section of T72 includes a rotation of medium to large-sized jumps and features. T72 is the new home of The Dumont Cup, which takes place every March.
Superpipe (T72) Big, ballsy, and the longest pipe in the East.
Sunday River's superpipe has 18-foot walls and stretches for 600 feet, making it the longest pipe in the East. It's located in the central section of T72, on skier's right. It is accessible from Second Mile or Dream Maker and serviced by the North Peak Express and Chondola lifts.
Jib Park (T72) Rails, boxes, and the like. Pick your poison.
T72's Jib Park can be accessed from Second Mile, Dream Maker, and Ridge Run (from 3D) and is serviced by the North Peak Express and Chondola lifts. The variety of this jib garden is sure to please both skiers and riders.
3D Go forth and prosper with our progression park.
3D is a progression park with mid-sized features in the upper section and a collection of mid-sized jibs in the lower section. Located on North Peak, accessible by riding upper 3D or cutting across from T72.
The Sticks 100% natural ingredients.
The Sticks is a natural terrain park in the woods on lower White Cap with 12 features, including a wall ride, jumps, a variety of natural, flat, and kink rails, and other wooden features. Right now, The Sticks is accessible from Starburst trail, serviced by the Little White Cap Quad. This park will be moving to lower North Peak for winter 2014-15.
Who-Ville Who said a beginner park could only enjoyed by beginners?
Who-Ville is designed as a fun park geared toward children and families, complete with super small jump lines, beginner boxes & rails, banked turns, and more rolls than your local bakery. Who-Ville is located on South Ridge and is serviced by the Chondola, the South Ridge Express, and the North Peak Express lifts. Lights line the trail making it available for night skiing.
