Park Report: April 14, 2014
That's a wrap!
Big thanks to the entire Sunday River Terrain Park Crew for creating some of the best parks that Sunday River has ever seen. What started as an early season park on Upper Sunday Punch quickly evolved into First Drop - a partial opening of our newest and biggest terrain park to date, T72 on North Peak. First Drop quickly gave way to Second Drop - the opening of the entire T72 trail - which gave way to an intermediate park on lower 3D and the construction of the Frozen Rush course. That's right, in between building jumps, the biggest halfpipe in the East, and a rail park that put so many other rail parks to shame (and included the Freeskier Design a Feature Urban Plaza), this crew was building the course for Frozen Rush, the first ever Pro-4 Truck race on snow that was filmed and later aired on Super Bowl Sunday. A pretty big deal.
Of course, it didn't stop there. The Frozen Rush course came down and was turned back into beginner ski terrain and this crew went to work on making enough snow for the 6th annual Dumont Cup and the family-cross course in Who-Ville, constructing the jibstastic minipipe for the Lib Tech Near Canada Open, and built a starter park for our first-ever Woodward Mini Camp Weekend. As for the Dumont Cup, well... Simon Dumont's event here at Sunday River was hands-down the best Dumont Cup that we've ever seen or hosted. The course was C-R-A-Z-Y and on par with the level of athleticism that showed up to compete including the entire 2014 Olympic Slopestyle podium and Olympic/pro freeskier names including Bobby Brown and Torin Yater-Wallace. In the end, Gus Kenworthy walked away with the 2014 Dumont Cup, but second place finisher Nick Goepper and third place finisher Bobby Brown certainly gave him a run for his money.
Thanks for an incredible season, everyone, and don't forget to grab your 2014-15 New England Pass now!

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 be 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.
