The goal of Brundage Mountain’s terrain park program is to provide snowboarders and skiers with a higher fun factor than they could find on typical groomed or natural terrain.
Learning is fun and finishing your day safely is fun, so we emphasize safety, courtesy, education and progression throughout all of our park experiences.
Brundage Mountain Resort has two terrain parks which offer a wide selection of features to give riders the opportunity to build skills as they progress and try new things.
Get started in the Bear Park to build your skills, confidence and understanding of Smart Style safety rules. Once you’ve done that, you will be ready to move to the new Deadwood Shred Park. Taking on the right challenges at the right time is one of the keys to shredding happiness.
- Deadwood Shred Park
Deadwood Shred Park
The location of this park right off the BlueBird quad creates easier access, better fall lines, and a high-profile location so those sick tricks can be seen by everyone riding the lift.
But what’s truly unique about this park isn’t the location, it’s the construction. We’ve used the natural materials on the mountain to shape the terrain and build the features. The features are designed to capture fresh snow, mimicking pillow lines one might find in the backcountry. These features should also open earlier in the season because it won’t be necessary to push thousands of cubic feet of snow to get them to a usable size. Learn more.
- Bear Progression Park
Bear Progression Park
This is the perfect place to tune up your skills early season and refresh your terrain park etiquette. A series of smaller, user-friendly jumps and rails will help you dial in your flow without a big fear factor. This is also a great place to work on new tricks before taking them to larger rail features in the Kickback Park.
You must have a valid lift ticket or season pass to use any of Brundage Mountain’s terrain features.
- Smart Style
No one likes to be cut off in the park and no one wants to see parks become extinct because of liability concerns. There are three main messages that are associated with Smart Style.
- Look before you leap.
- Easy Style It – Start small and work your way up.
- Respect gets Respect – From the lift line through the park.
Check out this video to understand each of these concepts in action:
