State of the Parks: February 23, 2015
If Dr. Seuss ever hit the slopes (which he very well may have), we could see him in the terrain parks, all one jib, two jib, red jib, blue jib. And of Sunday River, he could've written another book about progression--Oh, the Features You'll Shred! Because, you see, our parks offer variety that's perfect for upping your skills, and have something for everyone to enjoy, no matter how big, or how small.
But enough of the Seuss-a-palooza. Here's what you need to know: we have five terrain parks with plenteous jumps and jibs. In Who-Ville, there's 16 tiny features for the tikes. Up on North Peak, hit the three boxes on Dream Maker on your way to the Progression Park on 3D, with nine medium features. When you're ready, and we hope you are, there's a huge jump line, followed by 25 medium and large jibs on T72. And if those steel rails and air-inducing jumps aren't your style, head over to the Family Cross on Rocking Chair for swooping rollers and berms.
And last, but certainly not least, the longest Superpipe in the East is really coming together on upper T72, which will be our last park installment of the season before the Dumont Cup! We'll be opening 600-feet of awesome by the end of February.
About the Parks
T72 15-acre Super Park
T72 is Sunday River's biggest park and one of the best in New England. With a total of 15 acres, the top section features a rotating mix or jibs and snow features, the middle section has a 600-foot superpipe along the right and large jump line along the left, and the bottom section is full a huge jib garden.
Designed in collaboration with Simon Dumont and Snow Park Technologies, T72 is the home of the annual Dumont Cup event.
T72 is located on North Peak between Dream Maker and 3D, accessible from the high-speed North Peak Express and Chondola lifts. T72's jib park may also be accessed using the South Ridge Express.
Halfpipe (T72) The longest pipe in the East.
Sunday River's halfpipe has 18-foot walls and stretches for 600 feet, making it the longest in the East. It's located in the central section of T72 and serviced by the North Peak Express and Chondola lifts.
Jib Park (T72) Multiple lines of rails, boxes, and jibs.
T72's Jib Park is located in the bottom section of the trail and can be accessed from T72, Dream Maker, and 3D. Lift service from the North Peak Express and Chondola.
3D Progression park
3D is a progression park with mid-sized jumps in the upper section and a collection of jibs and jumps along the center and lower sections. Located on North Peak, accessible by riding upper 3D or cutting across Last Mile from T72.
Rocking Chair Boardercross in Barker Basin.
Barker Mountain's Rocking Chair makes a triumphant return this season with a brand new layout, complete with boardercross features. It is accessible via the Barker Mountain Express and Locke Mountain Triple lifts.
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.
