Little Park…Big FUN!
From the moment the black and orange rope was coiled back and the closed sign was flipped to OPEN, the Pumpstation 3 park has been packed with freestyle skiers and snowboarders. The grand opening reminded me to the North Face opening on a powder day: people all lined up at the gate waiting to get lines of fresh pow. In this case, it was a line of freshly groomed freestyle features.
Located at the top of Chair 7, Pumpstation 3 started the 2012/2013 season with a three-pack of jumps. And has since been expanded into a choose-your-seven-feature-fun-line. Our little Pumpstation 3 park is packed to the gills, and has been super fun with good flow to it too. Whether you’re into jibbing or jumping, the Pumpstation 3 park has it all. You’re never too young or to old to have fun! “I’m so stoked right now! Who’s ready to get wild?”, is one of the many comments I’ve heard while maintaining features throughout the day.
Keep your eyes open and check the mountain report for more freestyle fun popping up around Alyeska. Fun to include… Beginner mini park! Boxes and rails that are flat on the ground to give you the feel of a different sliding surface, and rollers to get you into pump and jump mode. Mini Pipe, Refinery Park and Pipeline Superpipe also on the way!
We’ll see you on the slopes, have fun be safe and remember to easy style it!
