The SuperPipe and Boardercross are being rebuilt this week. We expect the new SuperPipe to be ready Monday, March 8. A rebuild is normal as you can cut the pipe only so many times before it becomes too wide (and we start to rub up against the inground walls). It also allows us to put the new snow we received last week to good use - it's amazing how much snow it takes to fill in and reshape the Superpipe. It's worth the wait - we'll have a perfectly cut SuperPipe ready for spring riding next week.
The Boardercross should be ready by March 9th, but it will be closed for training and competitions only. We'll be stepping up the course as it will first host the OISA State High School Championships, then the USSA Revolution Tour followed by the USSA NorAM SBX Championships. There's going to be some great riding at Meadows this spring.
Film Festival Saturday
We are impressed by the number of and quality of videos submitted for the Film Festival. Many feature awesome riders in our terrain parks. Forest Park, Rose City and Shipyard provided some great set ups for filming this season. You can preview some submissions in our gallery of what you'll see this Saturday - of course we'll be playing the high res versions on the big screen in the Finish Line Pizzeria and Sports Bar - 4 to 6 PM! Thanks to our sponsors Columbia Sportswear, Go Pro Cameras, Full Sail Brewing, Fuel TV and Vaya Creative.
Sign up for 3 Day Freestyle Camps
We have two sessions scheduled - March 22 - 24 and March 29 - 31. They're a great opportunity to take your park and pipe skills to the next level. Five hours of instruction each day with a park specialized instructor. Topics covered will include, but are not limited to: jumps, half-pipe, rails and boxes, flatland, all-mountain freestyle, park safety and etiquette. Groups will be split up by age and ability.
Whether training for the next level of tricks or just looking to enter the park for the first time, this camp is a great way to progress your freestyle skills. The camp is open to anybody 7 to 14 who is an intermediate level skier/rider. (Intermediate level means for snowboarders that you are capable of making full turns (heel to toe, toe to heel) on most blue terrain. For skiers, it means that you are able to ski parallel on most blue terrain.)
Reservations are required at least 48 hours before the first day of camp. Call 503.337.2222, ext. 1419 to reserve your space today!
