We would like to emphasize very strongly that the terrain parks are FLIPPING AWESOME RIGHT NOW.
Jump line still going strong. 32 features. Two full parks. Two halfpipes.
And it will sunny and 60 this weekend.
This was taken today, April 22. We’re still rocking and rolling in Haywire and the Stomping Grounds, with a full jump line and a whole mess of rails. Skybound and Sidewinder are both done for the season, but the Superpipe and Minipipe are both open in full springtime excellence.
Our plan for parks for the rest of the season will be to keep Stomping Grounds and Haywire up and running right until the bitter end. So as long as the mountain is open, you’ll have a park to shred.
Like what you saw in the parks here at the Loaf this season? Take a quick minute and rate us in the TransWorld Resort Poll!

Haywire shred sesh with Nick Rosenberger. Another awesome edit from Nick Tenney.
All of this and more (minus the two handsome park rangers) could be yours at tomorrow’s Cheeseburger Picnic. Show us your PEEPS Pass to get your free burger, and then get ready to throw down in the min-pipe for a chance to win all of these goodies.
Don’t have a PEEPS Pass? Take the short online course here and pick yours up tomorrow morning.
Join us Sunday to celebrate terrain parks, minipipes, spring, cheeseburgers, and creepy promotional posters. We’ll be hanging out, throwing down in the minipipe, and slinging burgers from 11am-2pm. Did we mention it’s all free?
Here’s a peek at the absurdly awesome awards for this weekend’s Banked Slalom, all handmade by Mainer Ben Coombs. You’ll have to bring your A-game to take home one of these bad-larries.
Thanks to Seth Wescott for the sweet pic.
Here’s your first look at the course for this weekend’s Banked Slalom. Jake and Joe have been working with Seth to design and build the course, and it is looking unbelievable. The start gate is actually up on Competition Hill this year, giving us a little more vert and a steeper start. It continues down Sidewinder (as you can see in the photo) and finishes near the entrance to Narrow Gauge. We’ll be taking the first test runs on it tomorrow, so stay tuned for more.
Also, if you’re Tweeting and/or Instagramming about the race this weekend, be sure to use hashtag #slbankedslalom. We’ll be compiling all of them in the Blue Room all weekend.
Here they are: The official entries for the 2014 Mt Baker Legendary Banked Salom. The fastest male and fastest female in this weekend’s Sugarloaf Banked Slalom each get one of these bad boys.

We busted out the big guns this morning to start contstruction on the Banked Slalom course on Sidewinder. After last week’s rain/freeze event the piles in here were solid as a rock, and would have been a lot of work to bust apart with a cat. So we brought up the excavator and let Joe have a little play-time.
We’ll be in here all week (minus a break for pow-shredding tomorrow) to get this bad-larry ready for the weekend.
