September 6, 2001 – Portland, Oregon – Premier, the original and authentic manufacturer of quality snowskates, has proudly teamed up with Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood, California, to develop a snowskate park for the 2001/02 season. The Premier Snowskate Park will further solidify Premier's position as the leading manufacturer of snowskates and an innovator in developing snowskate parks for the sport.
The Premier Snowskate Park will be located at the top of Mountain High's East Resort and will feature combinations of rails, funboxes, jumps, quarterpipes and more. Access to the Premier Snowskate Park will be free with a paid Mountain High lift ticket or just $10 without.
"I'm really stoked to be working with Mountain High. This will be our flagship snowskate park in Southern California," says Andy Wolf, Premier's founder. "I think it's going to be a perfect opportunity for Premier and Mountain High to combine their skateboarding and snowboarding knowledge. So all you skate moms, bring up your kids because it's only ten-bucks."
The Premier Snowskate Park is one of dozens being embraced by first-class resorts around the world. Currently, Premier sponsors and/or operates snowskate parks at camps such as High Cascade, Windell's, Camp of Champions and SPC 55 as well as parks at Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows, to name a few.
"Mountain High has been on the cutting edge of terrain parks for the past several years," states John McColly, Mountain High's Marketing Director. "And we're excited to be promoting the sport of snowskating with this new facility, the first of its kind in Southern California."
Premier, the original snowskate manufacturer, launched in 1998. A snowskate, a board that is slightly wider and longer than a skateboard, is made of plastic with a channeled base for stability and tracking and a foam topsheet for grip. Snowskates combines the design, physics and feeling of skateboarding and snowboarding and are for use on snow-covered sled hills and golf courses, snowskate parks, or even right in the backyard. Premier Snowskates are currently available in specialty snow/skate shops worldwide and in select mail-order catalogs.
