We know you've been waiting for it...the longest Superpipe in the East is finally here! This 600-foot half pipe is ready to ride. Find it on the upper part of T72 after you cruise through a few banked turns. It's steep, it's long, and it's all yours.
What else can you look for in our 5 parks here at Sunday River? Take a run through Whoville over at South Ridge where you'll find 13 small features for those looking to perfect their skills before tackling the bigger features. Like hitting the bigger jumps, rails, and boxes? Take a ride through 3D where you'll find 9 medium sized features. But if you're really into getting mad air and hitting some gnarly rails, head on over to T72 where you'll find 30 features. But don't forget on your way down to 3D and T72 to hit the 3 features on the top of Dream Maker. How many features can you hit in one run?
Park's Crew will be working hard over the next few days to switch up many of the features in T72. Looking a new rail or box to hit? Check back in this weekend for new and exciting features to throw down on!
Be on the lookout for many different park competitions and events happening in the month of March including The Dumont Cup hosted by Simon Dumont. Park's Crew will be busy building many features for these upcoming events.
