Grouse Parks just opened it’s infamous park set up for the 21/22 season. Currently having the paradise park and the cut hike park open, the mountain has eight features for boarders of all skill levels.
Paradise Park – A two-line park set up next to the greenway chairlift. It consists of 6 features, a left and right lane for beginner and intermediate park riders. This year, the right lane has the famous barrier presented by nitro snowboards, transitioning into a small flat-down rail then finally a bench feature.
The left lane is mellow with a rainbow box, a flat down box, and finally, a flat box for a fun cruise, suitable for anyone.
Cut hike park – A two feature small park at the top of the cut and next to the screaming eagle chairlift. Currently has a medium-size pontoon tube next to a perfect Salmon Arms down rail. Perfect for a hike session due to its gentle slope.
Thank you to the park crew for all the hard work and especially Marcus Cartwright for the setup this year!
