Snowbird, Utah, March 16, 2023 – An all-new collaboration between Snowbird and Woodward is coming to the mountain this spring. With over 600 inches of snowfall so far this season, Snowbird will play host to a Woodward Mountain Park experience, concluding with the Woodward Peace Park Championships.
The Woodward Mountain Park, a transformational and re-imagined approach to terrain parks, will consist of small- to medium-sized terrain park features located off Baldy Express in Mineral Basin from April 14 through at least May 7. Designed in conjunction with the Woodward Global Mountain Park teams and terrain park industry leaders Snow Park Technologies and Effective Edge, the park will showcase an innovative, fun and intuitive on-mountain experience.
“As part of the POWDR family, this collaboration between Snowbird and Woodward has been a long time coming—bringing together not only our unique and beloved brands but also our employees and their expertise," said Snowbird President and General Manager Dave Fields. “We are proud and excited to offer a dynamic new way for Snowbird guests to explore and enjoy the mountain this spring.”
This exciting collaboration will reach its pinnacle with the Woodward Peace Park Championships, an invite-only snowboard event created by X Games Gold Medalist, Dew Tour Champion and Olympian Danny Davis. The event will span May 2-6 on a course designed by Davis and will bring some of the world’s best snowboarders to Snowbird in the spirit of collaboration, creativity and fun. The world-class course will open to the public on May 6 during Peace Park for the People, when the Snowbird community will be invited to experience the course for themselves alongside the competitors.
“When Danny Davis created the idea of a Peace Park, he imagined a new type of experience, one that reinvented freestyle terrain with a focus on fun and flow,” said Woodward President Chris “Gunny” Gunnarson. “This collaboration with Snowbird, arguably one of the most incredible mountains in the world, is sure to be one of the best Woodward Peace Parks we’ve seen as top pros gather and ride Snowbird in an entirely new way.”
Snowbird is scheduled to be open for daily skiing and riding through May 14, and then will be open Friday-Sundays and holidays through Memorial Day. With no closing date in sight, Snowbird will continually assess operations past Memorial Day based on conditions.
