Park City: Nail the Rail

By Tim Roberts Nov 23, 2006

Today Park City Mountain Resort lived up to its name and its #1 ranking by Transworld Snowboarding magazine for best terrain parks three years running. Most resorts, including Park City, haven’t had the snow to start building their parks. However, Park City did have a variety of rails to jib on. They currently have two lifts running accessing beginner and intermediate groomers. On the right side of Treasure Hollow there are gates skiers and riders pass threw to access the rails. Snowboarder Mike Amezcua has a season pass at Park City and makes the drive from Highland in Salt Lake. Mike said, “Park City is my favorite resort because I really like the park, and I just like riding the resort.” Ryan Bulloch, another Park City pass holder, makes the drive all the way from Orem three to four times a week to ski Park City. Photographer Aaron Broege took this nice picture of Ryan spinning a 270 on to the rail and another 270 off the rail. Ryan, who’s favorite condiment is mayonnaise, said, “I like skiing Park City more than any other resort mainly because of the park.” After sliding a few more rails we ran into our buddy Craig who had just finished riding the new gravity fed alpine coaster. Craig said, “It was sick.” He showed us some camera phone footage of the coaster, and it definitely looked like a good time. We then decided we better go drink some beer on the deck of the Legacy Lodge and called it a day.
