Park Report: Fall 2015
We're gearing up for winter.
If you weren't here last winter you missed the opening of T72 - a new trail we cut specifially for a terrain park. T72 is 15 acres and boasts the longest superpipe in the East plus a jump line and huge jib garden. For this winter we're making T72 even better by upgrading all the snowmaking to new HKD Park Guns that will help us crank out the huge volumes of snow even faster.
Elsewhere in the park world at Sunday River, we're doubling the side of the 3D progression park, adding a new PistenBully Park Cat to our grooming fleet, bringing the Whoville beginner park back on South Ridge, and planning to add boardercross features on the Rocking Chair trail.

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.
Halfpipe (T72) Big, ballsy, and the longest pipe in the East.
Sunday River's halfpipe 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.
