Park by name and park by nature, Park City in Utah is one of the biggest and oldest freestyle parks in the United States. When Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympics back in 2002 Park City was home to the halfpipe event which saw Ross Powers take gold in the men’s event as well as Britain’s first ever snowboard representative in Lesley McKenna.
Park has three huge terrain parks that cater for riders of various levels, from the Ridge for beginners, up to the King’s Crown which has some absolutely huge kickers. Not for the faint hearted. In between the two is the Three Kings Park and the Eagle Superpipe – 22ft of prime pipe action.
The world class facilities and easy location (it’s only half an hour from Salt Lake City Airport) make it a popular destination for some of the biggest names in the business with Dan Brisse and Torah Bright on the local pro team. It’s also featured in many a snowboarding film, the massive kicker section in Art of Flight was filmed in the Three Kings park.
