Boxzilla Dec 20th

Hey guys! 
Hennie van Jaarsveld here and just got done chopping up a quick video of the day up at The Canyons. The park crew put down an awesome set of boxes that was going by the name of Boxzilla, the thing was a beast! All told it measured in at 196' and was being tested by potential slayers throughout the whole day. Peep the video of Witt Foster, Sam Webb, Brady Perron and Erica Durtschi getting down with the features.

Smells Like Fun

Check out this video posted on the Snowboard Mag website. It has lots of footage from The Canyons as well as having Canyons team riders.

We are in painted Horse!

Thank you for your patients. We now have enough terrain open around the mountain to move the park into Painted Horse. We are adding new features every night and expect to have at least two jumps and 11 rail features by the weekend. After painted we will move into respect and start making snow for features. I'll keep you posted on our progress. In the mean time come to painted and get your jump on. Also don't forget about Boxzilla this weekend. Its going to be 196' of fun box fun!

Captain's Blog... (From Crossroad Studios) snow in Utah was getting lame, so MN (Mother Nature) decided to bless us with some love, but before that happened, the Canyons Resort has been working hard with their limited resources to provide the best possible park, despite their lack of snow. This weekend's storm has allowed them to do a lot more, but this was before they had any additional terrain open. Pretty pumped to go out and shoot with some of the local kids. Still no skiers that have approached me and want to hike and get shots, so until that happens, looks like it's going to be a terrain park blog loaded with snowboard shots (and yes, that's a challenge to all you skier kids that totally slay it. I know you're out there)? These are the newest features in the terrain park, and we had a lot of fun getting some afternoon shots, and stoked that mini Milo shred Jonas was able to come out and kill it for a few shots. Snagged an edge on his frontside 270 and slammed pretty hard, unstrapped, jumped up, and ran back up the hill for a second run, and stuck a f/s 270 on, 270 out. Straight slaying it, son. Stoked on Simon and E-Long for sacrificing their bodies as well. Get pumped for new features this weekend!

Progression Despite Circumstances

New features dot the barren landscape of the Utah Shred scene, and although much needed snowfall has since accumulated, Friday's session was meager at best with regard to snow conditions. The Canyons Terrain Park crew has been absolutely slaying it and keeping things fresh. With some luck this snowstorm will give us enough fresh that they can push up a jump or two to add to their arsenal of features, but one way or the other, get stoked on the crazy stuff Steve and the guys are coming up with over on the North Side of town. New features include a corrugated pipe, double dance floor to 6" round pipe, single pipe down rail, double-pipe d-f-d, and a second dancefloor flat box. Peep the pics and get stoked on the season.
