Woodward Peace Park, a featured venue at Killington’s Woodward Mountain Park, is a unique, ever-evolving terrain park designed to maximize creativity and progression with a focus on fun for shredders of all ages, intermediate to advanced. Only available at POWDR properties, Woodward Peace Park is now open at Killington in Vermont, Boreal in Tahoe, Mt. Bachelor in Oregon, Woodward Park City in Utah, and Copper Mountain in Colorado. Wooodward Peace Parks will be open regularly, as conditions permit, and can be accessed with any lift ticket or season pass to the mountain.
“We are excited for our guests to have the chance to win their way to the 2020 Woodward Peace Park Championships, where they will ski and ride with some of the best athletes in the world,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain.
Pro riders who attended last year’s inaugural 2019 Woodward Peace Park Championship included: Danny Davis, Red Gerard, Jamie Anderson, Ben Ferguson, Mark McMorris, Scotty James, Rene Rinnekangas, Sebbe de Buck and Maddie Mastro, and were joined by Sean Neary – winner of last year’s video competition based on his edit filmed at Killington. “Killington’s Woodward Peace Park is now open as part of our integrated Woodward Mountain Park network of zones which feature something fun for everyone,” added Solimano.
This year’s Woodward Peace Park Championships at Mt.
