Grouse Mountain, located in North Vancouver, is a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. The mountain boasts a variety of terrain, including multiple terrain parks that offer a wide range of obstacles and features for freestyle riders.
And now more than ever Grouse mountain is the place to be for freestyle riding, the new “Shortcut” Handle tow is bound to excite all the locals. The handle tow, which is similar to a rope tow but uses a handle instead of a rope, provides an easier and more controlled way for riders to access the terrain park features.
The handle tow is located in the park’s beginner and intermediate sections, allowing those who are new to terrain park riding to get a taste of the freestyle experience without having to navigate the more challenging terrain found in the advanced sections. The handle tow is also a great option for those who may be intimidated by the traditional rope tow, as it provides a more secure grip and allows for a smoother ride up the hill.
“Getting a handle tow on the North Shore has been long overdue. This will be a gamechanger for the BC park scene and great for the next generation of Canadian park riders.”
