The Streets Grand Opening at Seven Springs
The folks at Seven Springs, Forum Snowboards, Forum Team riders Pat Moore and Nic SauvÃ© and Snow Park Technologies have teamed up to bring snowboarders something they until now, could only dream of. Straight out of something you’d find at the X Games, The Streets, a one-of-a-kind urban park, is set to debut Thursday, January 19 at Seven Springs. This is a game-changer in terms of urban snowboarding, as not too many resorts have incorporated a park of this type into their design. â€œBeing able to bring this level of urban features to a full access resort is something we used to only dream of,â€ said Forum Brand Manager Kevin Winkel. â€œThe features in The Streets will forever change how resorts look at building parks.â€

In addition to The Streets project, Seven Springs also has plans to expand its superpipe. Located in The Spot, the halfpipe’s 18-foot walls will be raised to 22 feet in height, making it a regulation Olympic-sized halfpipe. This halpipe will be one of only two of its size on the East Coast when completed. DAYOM!
