Pond Skim

pond skimTomorrow we will be hosting the last event of the year which is the Pond Skim. We are going to try and keep Birch Run open for as long as possible but that’s all dependent on weather. Spring skiing is at an all time high right now so hopefully we will get some good sun tomorrow for the Pond Skim!

Molly Rowlee Rail Jam – March 15, 2014


We just barely squeezed in the Molly Rail Jam benefit in the Zone this year. Barreling in from both sides was a March squall and heavy fog. Shaka bra!

Deep Snow

Riglet

Another brisk day up here at Smuggs and conditions are still all time. As you can see the snow is deep and ready for the taking. Log Jam got a good reshape this morning and the Zone is still under construction for the Big Air event that is taking place this weekend. Knights Revenge is riding very nice at the moment thanks to all this natural snow we have been getting. Birch Run is also in great condition so come on up and experience it for yourself.

Monday Update

Airbag032314This past weekend we hosted the USAirbag event and it went great, so hopefully you were able to come up and check it out. This coming weekend we are having the Big Air event in the Zone so the Zone will be closed most of the week due to construction. All the other parks are holding up great because of the low temps we have been experiencing along with the sporadic snowfalls. Spring skiing is starting to look very promising and our pond skim event is coming up a couple weekends from now so plan on that being a fun event to watch/participate in.

Conditions and Upcoming Events

AirBagCurrently the Zone is closed due to construction but Birch Run, Playground, and Log Jam are still holding up nicely. This Friday will be the first day of three where we will have an airbag set up in the Zone so come on out and try some insane tricks you’ve always wanted to try. Pictured above is the airbag ramp so hopefully it’s big enough for you! The weekend of the 28th we are hosting a Big Air event so anticipate the Zone to be closed prior to that event.

Early Week Update

Rainbow Box newWe picked up a fresh dusting last night which really helped smooth out some of the low points in Birch Run along with Log Jam. The Zone is currently in excellent shape and was freshly groomed this morning as was Playground. We have the Molly Rail Jam coming up this Saturday in the Zone so be aware that the Zone will be closed mid-week leading up to the event due to construction. Last week we built a new rainbow box feature for this weekends contest so come up and check it out.

Parks Update & Up Coming Events

Another beautiful day up here at Szone-blog030714muggs and conditions were supreme all day. The parks are holding up great due to these low temps we have been experiencing so nothing new there. We have some big events coming up soon, The Molly Rail Jam will be going on next weekend in the Zone so expect the Zone to be closed prior to the event to allow us to set up. Also the Air Bag is coming the weekend of the 21st and the Big Air the weekend after that. We will try to keep the Zone open as much as possible but due to these events it’s going to be hard to always have it open.

SSU Instructor Brian Jessiman in Birch Run

It’s been fairly cold up here the past couple of days so right now the parks are solid and fast. Log Jam, Playground, Birch Run and the Zone were all freshly groomed this morning and are in great condition. With a couple inches in the forecast the conditions are only going to get better so hopefully that snow hits us.
