Snowboard Park

Halfpipe1/4 PipeTerrain ParkInformation
Super Pipe with New Zaugg Super Pipe GroomerYesThe Six O' Three Park is our main park covering the majority of the Spruce Peak. The Six O' Three is serviced by it's very own triple that shoots right up the middle of the park splitting it into two distinct sections. Pipeline is on skiers right and contains our small and medium features. Each line is progressive, which means it get's harder or more technical as you work your way down. On skier's left we have Jetstream. This park is designed to push your limits and technical skills. You'll find a lot of large jumps on this side along with gap rails, our Ess-rail, and 50ft. flat rail, to name a few. This side of the Six O' Three is for the expert level skiers and riders. Eastside is fun for everyone! Our Eastside trail, located mid-mountain off of Westside, is a great spot to catch a little air. The top of Eastside starts with a smaller, less intimidating half-pipe with 8 ft. walls. After that you will encounter some rollers, and spines to play on. Eastside does not contain any metal features, it is a 100% snow feature park. Calypso is found on our South Peak Learning Area. Inside you will find a large number of snow features that will get you used to rollers, spines, and other snow elements you may find in bigger parks. This terrain park is great for beginners looking to progress in freestyle. If you haven't been in a park before, this is a good start.An exciting blend of jumps, spines, hits, rollers, moguls, curves, airbag and more. To top it off, the Mount Sunapee's Terrain Parks are totally engulfed in sound with one of New England's biggest sound systems playing a wide variety of music.
