5 DESTINATIO­NS WITH EXPANSIVE TERRAIN PARKS

-

1 Mount Snow, Vt.

The mountain’s Carinthia zone is 100 acres comprising nine terrain parks of varying skill levels packed with jumps, rails, glades, kickers, and more, plus a 16-foot Superpipe.

2 Buttermilk, Colo.

The Winter X Games venue has stellar parks, of course. The five terrain parks run from the top of the mountain to the base, weaving together a several-mile-long run for dedicated park rats. There’s also a 22-foot Superpipe.

3 Mammoth Mountain, Calif.

The Socal resort has nine parks and two Superpipes ranging in skill level from never-ever to pro. That’s over 100 jibs and up to 50 jumps across 100 acres.

4 Timberline, Ore.

Eight terrain parks for all levels keep Timberline in the Top 5, plus six of them are convenient­ly accessible off of the Stormin’ Norman chair.

5 Breckenrid­ge, Colo.

If Breck’s four terrain parks and 18-foot Superpipe are good enough for the Dew Tour, they’re good enough for you. Start at the entry-level Highway 9 and work your way up.
