For nineteen years, SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s Superpark gathering has routinely pushed the limits of what is possible when it comes to building and riding next level, man-made park terrain. Now, SNOWBOARDER Magazine is once again set to take this level of inbounds freestyle riding to a place where it has never been before, east of the Mississippi. For 2015, SNOWBOARDER is bringing Superpark to Seven Springs Mountain Resort, located in southwestern Pennsylvania.
“Seven Springs is honored to be the first East Coast resort to host Superpark,” declared Joel Rerko, the Director of Mountain Operations for Seven Springs. “It is incredible to be a part of the snowboarding progression that happens at Superpark.” Having taken part as a visiting build team at four previous Superparks as well as hosting SNOWBOARDER’s 2014 The Launch event, Seven Springs was an obvious choice for this year’s venue.
According to SNOWBOARDER Creative Director Pat Bridges, “Hardly a day has gone by this winter without the 24-hour news cycle mentioning record snows back East and record lows when it comes to base depth out West. This has created a perfect storm, so to speak, making this the right time to bring our Superpark event to the right coast.”
Joining the acclaimed Seven Springs Terrain Park staff in erecting Superpark will be Bear Mountain’s legendary builders as well as Boreal Mountain’s terrain sculptors, making this truly a bi-coastal affair.
Superpark 19 presented by Nexen Tire will take place at Seven Springs, Pennsylvania from April 5-9, 2015. The global market leader for snow grooming machines, Pisten Bully, has once again signed on to be the official snowcat supplier of Superpark.
SNOWBOARDER Magazine is entering its 28th year of documenting the sport of snowboarding. Since day one, SNOWBOARDER has been the inspiration for riders to go out and shred, indulge in their passion and progress their skills. The name says it all: If you’re a snowboarder, then SNOWBOARDER is for you. The magazine is part of The Enthusiast Network that reaches more than two million active sports enthusiasts each month through an integrated network of magazines, online properties, events and television programming. www.snowboarder.com.
