Vista Superpipe Open

OK Pipe riders. Your Superpipe awaits you. This stretch of sunny weather allowed our Parks Grooming crew to get the Zaug up on Vista to shape up a 230 foot long Superpipe. It's the only one we know of on the West Coast and you'll find it here at Meadows!

Enjoy it now - as when it starts snowing again that 18 foot deep pipe gets buried. Superpipe in the sunshine. Be there!

Picture yourself in the pipe - snap a shot on your cell phone and email it to true82stand@photos.flickr.com We'll see you in our photo gallery!

    Nice to see you guys throwing down this year on getting some stuff built with little snow. I hope that carries over to some good parks on Herm as we get more snow built up. Adding the rails into the rose city park has been a nice touch I really like that rainbow rail.

    That sounds Awesome! To bad it cost $69 to get to it!!!!! That's the same price as a ticket to Mt. Bachelor. Did you guys open some more terrain? Or do you still have 2,150 acres? Mt. Bachelor has 3,683 acres accessible by lift.

    Meadows: You need to look at our deals page: http://www.skihood.com/deals

    I see you put the seats on the Heather chair. How are the snow bridges coming along? Will the runout be ready for next weeks storm? If you can build 18 ft walls for the park rats maby you could fill in a creek or two for the rest of us.

    Thanks, ready for the real fun to begin. Bring on Heather!

    Meadows: We have a substantial amount of wind load piling the snow up on Vista for the pipe. We will open Heather as soon as we possibly can.

    I checked the "deals page" unless you put some light's next to the superpipe it's still $69 to get to it. I would much rather ride Meadows but these prices are way to high. And from the sound of it I'm not the only one that thinks so. The Rose city park does look way better then years past, one good thing

    Meadows reply: Thanks for the feedback. There are some great ways to reduce your cost at Meadows - 10 Time Pass ($399); Costco deal ($159.99 for 3 tickets @ Costco); ride offpeak ($57 ticket); Meadows after Dark - $25 starting at 3 PM so you could get at least one run on Vista before it closes at 3:30. You can also purchase a peak day ticket good open to close for $64 in our online store.

    Just wanted to say, Meadows is doing a great job with their parks this year! Please keep it up! To all those that just love to complain.... Everyone knows that skiing/snowboarding is not the cheapest sport out there. If your soooo upset about a $69 lift ticket the maybe you should of bought a season pass! Its kinda of annoying to read how everyone likes to complain about prices it is what it is.... If Meadows had $40 lift tickets then you people would just start to complain about there is to many people on the mountain and its to crowded. Thanks Meadows you do a great job!

    will their be vista jumps this year?
    last season they were the best jumps in the world!!

    Meadows: we'll be focusing our jump building on Park Place @ HRM this season. However, until we get enough snow there we'll make the most of the snow where we have it.
