BEAVER CREEK, Colo.—Dec. 31, 2001—Forget the black-eyed peas, Baby New Year and Bloody Mary’s, this New Year’s Day, Beaver Creek was home to the ultimate Jan. 1 kick-off celebration. On Tuesday, the first day of the New Year, the resort opened up 400 feet of super fun with the opening of the resort’s new Superpipe and terrain park on the Moonshine trail.
“With the super snow, super new shaping machine and super pipe crew, we couldn’t think of a better day to open the new Superpipe at Beaver Creek to our guests,” said John Garnsey, chief operating officer for the resort. “Our park and pipe experts have been working hard to make this year’s opening especially memorable. Our local park hounds will be especially pleased to see several new features and we hope they thoroughly enjoy the new pipe.”
Beaver Creek’s Moonshine Snow Park & Superpipe, located off of Centennial on Moonshine, features a pipe sporting 18-foot walls and runs 400 feet in length. This expert-level snow park and Superpipe area offers more than ten different jumps, six rail slides and a fun box. The new pipe gets it’s super shape from a snow-shaping machine called the Zaugg Monster.
