Park Report: April 21, 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 new T72 park - followed by the opening the entire T72 trail and the new progression park on 3D. In between building jumps, the biggest halfpipe in the East, a huge jib garden, and the Freeskier Design-A-Feature Urban Plaza, our crew was built Red Bull Frozen Rush, the first ever Pro-4 Truck race on snow that later aired nationally on Super Bowl Sunday. By March it was time to for the Lib Tech Near Canada Open jib-pipe followed by a start park for the Woodward Mini Camp and a huge slopestyle course for the AFP platinum-level Dumont Cup. Simon's signature event was hands-down the best Dumont Cup ever and brought to Sunday River the entire 2014 Olympic slopestyle podium plus fellow Olympians Bobby Brown and Torin Yater-Wallace and a host of other pros. 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.

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.
