The site of our Good Wood park board test, Mount Snow, Carinthia Parks at Mount Snow have become an East Coast powerhouse in park design. Check out the C Sessions edits for proof.

The resort introduced Carinthia Parks in 2008, which turned 100 acres of Mount Snow into a pure park zone. Here you’ll find the biggest rails and jumps, starting at 25-feet in the The Gulch, a mile of medium-size jibs in the Nitro park, round bars and wrecking balls in the Junkyard, and kickers as long as 70 feet in Inferno. All solid stuff, no doubt. But where Carinthia really stands apart is with The Farm and Prospector parks. Inspired by the surrounding community, The Farm offers burly, fully-shredable jibs like barns, sugar shacks, horse trailers, and sap buckets. Leading into The Farm line, you might want to detune your edges to deal with the down logs, C-logs, and log jams strewn throughout this zone. These wood features are becoming iconic for the Carinthia brand.

Built around the Nitro Express and Heavy Metal chairs, all eight of the Carinthia Parks funnel back to the base zone for full-length park laps, another reason why this spot is among the best in the East.

*A learning pipe is a banked halfpipe on a flat surface, usually waist deep. It’s designed for beginners to figure out how to slide and compress in transition without fear of loosing control.
