The Gold Link and Cascade Terrain Parks are part of a complete freestyle pod off the Painter Boy and Goldlink lifts. This translates to a literal playground for the park enthusiast, highlighted by the ability to progress from one park β and one feature size β to the next.
The Cascade location also is ideal for larger park features, offering a consistent fall line for the jib park. Cascade is blessed with good afternoon light, allowing for better visibility, and itβs proximity to mountain operations headquarters means snowcat operators have easier access and more time for preening features.
Snowfall: 300 inches per year
