Stratton Mountain Ranked Top 10 Best Terrain Parks

USA Today recently released their nominations for the Readers Choice 10 Best Terrain Parks and best ski town in the country. On that list was Vermont's own Stratton Mountain Resort. So today we're going to take a peek at how the resort is getting its park ready to be a winner.

Cassie Russo, the social media and communications manager at Stratton said, "I definitely think our expertise separates us from other terrain parks"

A terrain park is an area featuring a number of jumps, rails, and other challenging obstacles. David Snyder has been with Stratton for 15 years making sure their parks, are well maintained and unique to their resort.

"I think what we have here at Stratton is a lot of progression parks that can get you from never even hitting a rail to hitting the big jumps" said David Snyder, Terrain Park Manager.

Stratton offers lessons to help you safely navigate the parks, and they can assure you, you'll never get bored!

Russo explains, "We definitely try to switch it up and make each park different so you're not doing the same thing over again"

You can also count on the parks being maintained all season long.

"Every night we have the cats go out and they groom the terrain and in the morning we have a day crew that goes out with rakes and shovels and fixes up the take offs to make sure that it's a good surface for the riders" explains Snyder.

And at just a couple hours north, getting a top notch mountain experience is closer than you think.

"I think sometimes people as far as terrain parks and mountains in general, they think out west they have the best of the best but really the best of the best is in Vermont" said Russo.
