Ski Sundown Makes Terrain Parks More Welcoming

Have you ever wanted to try a jump in a terrain park? Or slide down a rail on the slopes?

Ski Sundown started the Girls Rock the Park event 3 years ago to make their terrain parks feel more welcoming

"It's a learning environment it's a session about how to approach features rotating them through a couple of smaller features building their confidence and then making them feel comfortable coming back and trying it any time" says Marketing Director Lori Shield.

"Honestly you don't see that many girls out there,” says snowboarder Janelle Boratko. “So I think when they see that there's just boys they might get a little caught off guard by it so it's going to be awesome to have this event"

In addition to having fresh and new features for skiers and snowboarders alike to try, part of the fun is just in the company.

Shield explains, "There's tons of camaraderie and I think that's another thing that the girls should really feel welcome knowing"

If you're not familiar with terrain parks, that's ok! There will be instructors at the event teaching you along the way.

"What we're doing now is changing out features in our park and making them more introductory in nature,” says Ski Sport School Director Jarrod Moss, “So that people who have no experience in the parks can find some features that may be appealing to them"

Registration is at the lodge from 9:30 to noon on Saturday. All you need to participate is $5 a helmet, a lift ticket and a signed waiver.

It will feel a bit like spring skiing in southern New England this weekend with high temperatures near 50. There's a small chance for a wintry mix Saturday early in the day with mostly cloudy skies followed by Sunday on Sunday. Northern New England will be slightly cooler in the 40s with the chance for rain or snow on Saturday with mostly cloudy skies for Sunday.
