Seven Springs, Pennsylvania prides itself on having one of the best terrain parks on planet earth, and as of recent, they can now boast a 22-foot superpipe to their already impressive on-hill resumé. With a dedicated and knowledgeable park staff, and with the world-renowned Snow Park Technologies as terrain park consultants, Seven Springs has proven itself as a snowboard destination for people all around the world to come and enjoy, and the 22-footer has only added to that reputation that they have in the snowsports world.
Along with the Rev Tour and the US Open qualifiers, Seven Springs has become a contest hub on the east coast and their park staff has been rewarded for their efforts with an invitation to SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s Superpark for the past two years, an honor granted only to the best park builders in the country. 2014 US Olympic halfpipe team member Taylor Gold can attest to the quality of Seven Springs, and more specifically, the superpipe, as he competed in the 2012 US Open Qualifiers last year. “I hadn’t been to Seven Springs before so I didn’t know what to expect, but they really pulled it together for the event with that pipe and everyone was going big. I won the qualifiers that year so I was really happy with how it all went. I’m stoked that they have a full-sized pipe out there. I don’t wanna see halfpipe become like bobsledding where the only place you can ride them are at old Olympic venues. I think it’s a super fun thing that has gone by the wayside and I’d like to see more kids getting into pipe, so it’s really rad that Seven Springs has a 22-foot superpipe.”
So the next time you’re considering a slopeside vacation, put Seven Springs at the top of your list. With park features like the infamous Streets, internationally acclaimed contests, and a full-sized pipe that is obviously above Olympic standards, Seven Springs can cater to your every freestyle need.
