Tahoe City, CA—Alpine Meadows Ski Resort presented the first phase of its mid mountain and upper mountain terrain park features this week. Six new options – which include a 32′ flat down rail, a 32′ up flat down box, a 36′ flat down box, and three 20′ table jumps – offer new features that have been uniquely built into the natural existing aspects of Red Green Trail, all accessible via Roundhouse High Speed Quad. The new features add to the already existing Kangaroo advanced terrain park and the Tiegel beginner park.
“This is a great start to the 2007 project of gradually expanding our terrain parks, which aim to provide features for any and all park skiing and snowboarding ability levels, said Jonahs David, Alpine Meadows Terrain Park Manager. “Between the Tiegel features, the new intermediate features on Red Green, and the advanced features on Kangaroo, there’s a very distinct path for progression at Alpine, he added.
Additional park features will be gradually added throughout the winter and can be anticipated on lower Blue Trail, and further up the mountain near the base of Alpine Bowl, Terry’s Return, and Green Trail.
Alpine Meadows will begin its nine week terrain park competition series, Sundays In The Park, on Sunday, January 28. Several areas within the new terrain parks will host this free competition. For additional information on Alpine Meadows’ terrain parks, visit www.skialpine.com.
Skiers at Alpine have a common bond, that which is uncommonly spoken. At a mountain that hosts some of North America’s most sought-after terrain, most loyal visitors gage happiness by powder depth. The privilege of finding hidden terrain, the charm of a mid-morning cocoa break, and the unspoken bond between other skiers and boarders make the whole of Alpine greater than the sum of its parts. Alpine is tradition. Beauty. Passion and Soul.
