The Stash

30 Sep

This winter, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming will have some new features to offer riders with the completion of the first Stash in the Rockies.

Burton Snowboards, Jackson Hole, pro riders, Snow Park Technologies, and the local Stash park crew have been working on the terrain park that features only natural elements. The Stash is only located at five other resorts worldwide: Northstar-at-Tahoe, USA; Avoriaz, France; The Remarkables, New Zealand; Flachauwinkl Resort, Austria; and Killington Resort, USA.

“The Stash concept is to use whatever indigenous materials and features the mountain has to offer – like rock walls, trees and drops – then enhance them a bit to create the ultimate natural park so riders can take their freestyle riding to the next level,” says Jeff Boliba, Global Resort Director at Burton Snowboards. “Riders like Jussi Oksanen have been helping with the Jackson Hole Stash, scoping the best lines and creating new features that will be super fun to ride.”

The Stash is scheduled to open this winter with four different runs and over 50 different features. Chain saw artist Bob King created 20 carvings that will be located around the Stash, one of which is a moose that riders can use like an up-rail. Burton team rider Jussi Oksanen came up with several features, as well as Jackson locals Bryan Iguchi, Rob Kingwill, and Travis Rice.
