Woodward’s exclusive new Park Snowboards and Skis were specifically designed by Woodward for use on the new Skatelite surface, installed at the Woodward at Copper Barn earlier this summer. Burton Park Snowboards and Park Skis have been put to the test at the most recent Woodward facility in Tahoe, CA; with glowing review the technology has been spread to Woodward at Copper. Both snowboards and skis are equipped with wheels that grip the surface, making the overall experience feel more like riding hard-packed terrain park snow. Interviews with Woodward Park Snowboards and Skis designers are available upon request.

Woodward at Copper Backstory
When Woodward at Copper opened its doors in 2009, it transformed the action sports industry by blowing through the glass ceiling of winter sport progression. Basing its philosophy off of Camp Woodward in Woodward, Penn., which opened in 1970, Copper Mountain was the first indoor/outdoor mountain home for this revolutionary product. Still one of few training facilities of its kind today, Woodward at Copper raises the bar, yet again, leading into the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia with improvements that will not only transform winter sports training, but will cater to summer and never-ever action sports enthusiasts, as well.
