Rosenwald, a former professional snowboarder, is one of the industry’s most recognized and skilled pipe and terrain park designers. With Rosenwald on board, Boreal Mountain Resort and Alpine Meadows will offer the leading terrain park and superpipe locations in Lake Tahoe.
Rosenwald, who has received attention from top athletes and ski and snowboard publications consistently as one of “the best”, joins Boreal and Alpine Meadows from June Mountain – Mammoth’s sister resort, located in Central California. As terrain park manager at June Mountain from 2001 to 2003, Rosenwald was responsible for the success and acclaim attributed to June’s JM2 terrain parks.
A native of Washington D.C., Rosenwald grew up skiing at Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine and in 1998 became the Director of Snowboarding, responsible for design, construction and maintenance of parks and pipes at Sugarloaf. Prior to 1998, Rosenwald was a competitive snowboarder, traveling throughout the US and Canada competing in various professional snowboarder competitions. As a professional snowboarder Rosenwald felt that the majority of parks and pipes in the country were not up to the standards expected by a professional athlete and was inspired to prove that parks and pipes can be better than mediocre.
Rosenwald instills a passion in his work for perfection; Rosenwald’s features are digitally engineered on a computer program calculating even how much snow is required to construct the “perfect” jump. Rosenwald’s quest for perfection has earned legendary status and attention as he has consistently participated in designing features for Freeze magazine’s Parkasaurus and Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark and Cutter’s Cup over the last three years.
This year, for Boreal and Alpine Meadows, Rosenwald is determined to put out the best product/park, unmatched by any other resorts in the area. “The goal for Boreal is going to be a quality first approach – to create a top to bottom park no one around the lake has experienced before,” said Rosenwald. He is also thrilled about the opportunity at Alpine. “Because it’s at the bottom of the mountain, the terrain park location is so accessible. It even has its own lift. You don’t have that kind of setup at other Tahoe resorts. This is a great chance to give kids the terrain features that they want, along with the best priced lift ticket in the area.” With an obsession for perfection and a commitment to quality, Boreal and Alpine Meadow’s 2004/2005 terrain parks are sure to be a work of art.
Northern California’s closest ski resort with unbeatable prices, Boreal offers 380 acres of lift accessible terrain, including over eight different terrain parks, sledding, equipment rentals, lessons, and a Kids Center. For more information call 530.426.3666 or visitwww.borealski.com.
