Whistler Doubles Public Terrain Park and Adds Superpipe this Summer

WHISTLER, BC, June 3, 2008 – Glacier skiing and riding on Blackcomb’s Horstman Glacier begins on June 9 and this summer, Whistler Blackcomb is doubling its terrain park features and upgrading to a Superpipe.

“We’re really ramping up the public offering this year,” says Adam Francis, Whistler Blackcomb’s assistant grooming manager. “We’re doubling the offering of terrain features we’ve had over previous years and are thrilled to be offering a Superpipe this year.”

Grooming and parks crews have been building the summer Superpipe under the Glacier Express chair. The pipe wall will feature three to four medium jibs and will be groomed nightly. As the build-out continues, the bottom of Showcase T-Bar will become jib central with six rails and boxes, varying in difficulty from small to large, and four medium-sized booters. Regular skiing and riding lanes will also be open to the public.
