Heavenly Mountain Resort ‘all in’ with Snow Park Technologies

Heavenly Mountain Resort 
has announced a new partnership with Snow Park Technologies (SPT).
Skiers and snowboarders will see a renewed dedication to
its parks, including the return of a halfpipe after a four-year hiatus.

 

“Anything we do at Heavenly we’re going to do
100 percent, and the terrain parks are no exception,” said Pete Sonntag,
Heavenly’s general manager. “We’ve always had some of the most creative parks
in the industry, and this partnership with Snow Park Technologies will allow us
to expand on that.”

 

Heavenly is home to four unique, progressive
terrain parks. Heavenly’s Terrain Park Crew draws its inspiration
from skate parks, setting jumps and features in a way that allows riders to
pick their own line.


Heavenly’s Ante Up
Terrain Park is currently the largest at Lake Tahoe, and will be the site for
this season’s Stateline Showdown amateur slopestyle competition series.

 

Heavenly plans to build the halfpipe in the
lower section of High Roller Terrain Park. It will be a roughly 400-foot-long,
competition-quality, 18-foot pipe with a 56-foot-wide transition. The location
on High Roller provides for an orientation that allows for a uniform
consistency between both sides of the pipe and a proper pitch, meaning one side
won’t melt faster than the other and will have even cuts with the Zaugg Pipe
Cutter. Heavenly plans to have the halfpipe open by Martin Luther King weekend,
January 14 – 16, 2012, weather and conditions permitting.

 

“It’s been awhile since we’ve been able
to offer a halfpipe to our guests and I’m super excited to see it return to
Heavenly and have the expertise and support from SPT,” said Mike Thomas,
Heavenly’s terrain park manager. “If you’re looking for the next magazine cover
shot, you’re going to want to consider this pipe.”
