"Meadows Parks" - a freestyle terrain experience featuring up to six different parks, themed to reflect the Portland lifestyle. Diverse yet unique in their own ways, MeadowsParks will have features to entice and challenge riders of all abilities. The parks often change with the season and operate depending upon conditions.
Park Place (the resort's original park) is our most advanced park featuring large jump features.
Forest Park offers the best flow for smooth slopestyling - full of medium and large size rails, jibs and jumps for intermediate/advanced riders.
The Zoo has rollers and small jumps and features located on the Mitchell Creek trail off of Easy Rider.
Banked Slalom has a series of small to medium burms for fun racing.
Fireweed offers sweet small and medium size slopestyle features with jumps and is night lighted.
Shipyard is where we keep our metal for early season access, night riding and really dialing in your technique on rail features that range from small to large.
The in-ground SuperPipe - 500 feet long and cut with the 18' Zaugg will provide high flying excitement for advanced riders. There's also a Minipipe rated small to medium for those getting the hang of halfpiping.
