Terrain Parks at Snowmass

Lowdown Park

Location: Lower Blue Grouse trail along Village Express Lift
The Gist: Our very own introduction park, it consists of beginner and low-intermediate-level features, including a beginner halfpipe. Look forward to jib features (boxes and rails) and snow features from rollers up to small true table top jumps (ranging in size from extra-small to medium). The run's gentle grade makes it easy to hike.

Makaha Park

The Gist: This park consists of all low-intermediate and intermediate features, ranging in size from medium to large. There are about 25 features in total, a triple line of jumps and about 15 jib features including all shapes of boxes and rails. Great area for learning new tricks and working on progression.
Opening Date: Usually in mid December (depending on conditions)
What's New: The recent removal of the Burlingame Lift has created some additional terrain for the park layout. Look for added features and new lines throughout the season.

The Gist: This park consists of advanced and expert features and also includes the Snowmass Superpipe (22-foot pipe cut by a Zaugg nightly).
