Terrain Parks - Facts & Stats

PARK LAYOUT

  • Buttermilk's two-mile long "Crazy T'rain" park, one of the longest continuous parks in the world, first opened during the 2001/02 season, and will be improved and expanded for 2002/03. New terrain has been cleared through Uncle Chuck's Glades, giving the Crazy T'rain its own dedicated run. The park, home of the 2002 and 2003 ESPN Winter X Games, features over 30 rails and 25 jumps, including table tops, hips and spines on the advanced side and easier tables, hits and spines for intermediate riders. Planned for this season is a permanent X Games slope-style course within the park.

    Trenchtown, the intermediate/advanced park at Snowmass, doubled the length for the 2002/03 season. This means more jumps, rails and hits. Trenchtown is accessed off the Coney Glade lift, and the Burlingame lift accesses its lower half. A handle tow hugs the length of the halfpipe. A beginner terrain park, accessible from the Funnel lift, runs down Funnel, and there's a mini-terrain park in the children's area off of Scooper.
