Mt. Seymour and Nike 6.0 are building the GREATEST HITS Park and they need your help! Vote on these timeless features from your favorite snowboard films and bring them to Mt. Seymour!
The GREATEST HITS Park will bring innovative park design to Mt. Seymour by recreating three legendary features that have played a part in snow-culture history. “Mt. Seymour has always been known as the locals mountain and really contributed to the evolution of the Vancouver snow scene since the early 90’s and the original SKIDS,” Kevin Sansalone, Nike 6.0 Canadian Snow Mentor. “The Nike 6.0 GREATEST HITS Park is going to elevate the insane park Mt. Seymour already offers to local riders, and provide an alternative place to ride during the mayhem this winter.”
Nike 6.0 is putting the power in your hands to vote on your favorite feature that you’d like to see resurrected at Mt. Seymour. Nike 6.0 has selected six features that have graced magazine pages and been sessioned by the top riders in some of the best videos to date. Features include the Utah Wallride, a massive concrete monolith outside of SLC, and the Vermont DoubleSet, a savage double with a kinked flat bar on one side, a toe-jam kinked flat bar on the other, and a closeout drop rail on top. Other features listed include the Calgary Triple Green Rails, Vancouver Delbrook Rail, a classic urban park rail, Utah Rail Gardens, and Montreal Big O Pyramids.

Nike 6.0 Greatest Hits:
Utah Wallride: This massive concrete monolith sits near the renown Utah backcountry spot known as Grizzly Gulch—a proud testament to urban boarding right in the midst of a powdery playland. Due to its proximity to the pro-snowboarder Mecca that is Salt Lake City, the Utah Wallride has served as breeding grounds for many a sick video session.
Vermont Double Set: This beast of a spot offers up some serious education in Burlington, Vermont serves up a cornucopia of options for urban domination. Here’s the rundown: a savage double set with a kinked flat bar on one side, a toe-jam kinked flat bar on the other, and a closeout drop rail on top. There’re even wallride possibilities if the fancy so strikes you.
Calgary Triple Green Rails: This triple set of round metal rails sits within the frigid confines of Alberta’s capital city. It’s no surprise, then, that Sandbox Films’ Calgary contingent kills this spot the hardest.
Vancouver Delbrook: This fat, juicy round rail in Vancouver’s Delbrook Park is an oldie but a goody that always has a session going when snow lands in the city. With wooden stairs and grass on either side (instead of, say, cheese grater metal or gravel covered cement), this fairly low consequence (albeit lengthy) rail lends itself beautifully to technical wizardry and serious ante-upping.
Utah Rail Gardens: This seminal spot in a northwestern suburb of Salt Lake City has helped shape the face of present day street riding. Featuring multiple mini-rail sets that are perfect for trick learning and combo-ing up, the Rail Gardens are the go-to warm-up and/or film spot for pros in the SLC area.
Montreal Big O Pyramids: Like mini, shreddable versions of the grand entryway to Paris’s Louvre Museum, Montreal’s “Big O” Pyramids have produced beaucoup video footage over the past few years. Riding-wise, these triangular structures at a renowned city landmark present many methods of attack—from the simple and stylish to the super tech.
