Carrabassett Valley, Maine – Guests of Sugarloaf/USA will be pleased to find new and improved trick opportunities in Vole Garden, one of Sugarloaf’s two terrain parks. The park, which can found on the trail, Scoot, just received a facelift offering an even more diverse range of jumps, rails and other assorted take-off spots. The park has been open for several weeks now, but just recently got a work-over after Sugarloaf was hit with over a foot of snow last week. “Scoot is really something special now,” says Eric Rosenwald, Director of Snowboarding at Sugarloaf. “This is the closest thing to a skate park made out of snow.” Rosenwald, formed the features in the park himself, a job requiring many hours inside a Bombardier SnowCat. Vole Garden offers jumps geared towards mid-level riders and freeskiers, including box jumps, hips, split-level jumps and even a rail.
Sugarloaf’s other terrain park, Stomping Grounds has been open for most of the season and offers high-caliber jumps for those who seek “some serious air.” Rosenwald plans on creating one more park for the mountain called Quarantine Zone. This park will have smaller jumps for those who are just learning skiing and snowboarding tricks.
