The Canyons hosted the USSA National Championship Snowboard Cross Grand Prix this year. The course was built on Doc's run, which made for a perfect venue. Athletes were challenged by the aggresive berms and obstacles on course, while spectators gathered below on Ski Beach to watch the race. Here are some highlights from the event.
The terrain park at Canyons has a new location and a new name this year. Transitions terrain park is over a mile long, and has multiple jump lines and rail features. Steve Duke and the park crew have been killing it with this new zone! Come check out the Transitions, all new at Canyons Resort.
For those of us with kids the thought of getting them on the snow is exciting, but, also a little frustrating. With getting boots, helmets, goggles, mittens, dragging them up the slope, trying to tell them how to ride, it's easy to forget that this is supposed to be fun! Burton was in town last week with 2002 Winter Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Powers to introduce some of the new innovations they've come up with to help get younger kids shredding and to make life a little easier on parents as well. Check it out.
