Trail Maps

An annual staple in the top 10 of Transworld Snowboarding Magazine’s Park Poll, Snowmass’s lineup of terrain features has the mix of innovation and precise construction to challenge and inspire any level of skier and rider to elevate their skills. Little wonder Snowmass has played host to some of the most iconic moments in freeski and snowboard history, from Mark McMorris stomping the first ever backside triple cork 1440 back in 2011 to Shaun White’s perfect 100 last season at the Snowmass Grand Prix.

With a constantly evolving mix of rails, jumps and transitions, over 100 features in total – including a 22 foot Zaugg-cut Superpipe – Snowmass has earned its reputation as one of the best resorts on the planet to ride in the park.

Lowdown Park

Location: Lower Blue Grouse trail along Village Express Lift
The Gist: Our very own introduction park, Lowdown 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 table top jumps (ranging in size from extra-small to medium). The run's gentle grade makes it easy to hike.

Makaha Park

Location: Lower Blue Grouse trail along Village Express Lift
The Gist: Immediately adjacent to the Lowdown Park, Makaha offers a logical next step up the progression ladder with its mix of intermediate and advanced features, ranging in size from medium to large. There are about 25 features in total, a progressive line of midsized 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)

Snowmass Park

Location: Below the Coney Glade Lift
The Gist: This park consists of advanced and expert features and also includes the Snowmass Superpipe (22-foot pipe cut by a Zaugg nightly). There are approximately 50 features located here, ranging in size from medium to extra large. Be on the lookout for well-cut hip and volcano transitions, bank turns, and a constantly evolving mix of rails, boxes, wallrides, and staircases winding their way down Banzai ridge across the bridge into the legendary triple line, where you might spot 2018 US Olympians Alex Ferreira and Torin Yater-Wallace adding the next 180 to their already formidable bags of tricks.
Opening Date: The Superpipe and park usually open during the first week in January (depending on conditions)
