Skiers at the Vail Mountain Resort in Colorado can choose from three freestyle terrain parks. Each park provides skiers and snowboarders with unique equipment and designs, ranging from the pro-style atmosphere of Golden Peak Park to the smaller jumps, boxes, and rails at both Simba Park and Pride Park, perfect for individuals attempting a terrain park for the first time.
Riders at the Vail beginner parks can spend time refining their freestyle skills on kid-friendly equipment before graduating to Vail’s prized freestyle space, the Golden Peak Terrain Park. Golden Peak's main attraction is a half pipe measuring 22 feet. However, the United States Open Snowboarding Championships are held at the park and the half pipe can not be used by the public during the event.
