New Features Coming to Bear Mountain!
Big Bear Mountain Resorts continues to be synonymous with technology and innovation
(Big Bear Lake, CA – December 20, 2012) – Bear Mountain introduces two impressive additions to the Red Bull Plaza and will open it to the public tomorrow, December 21. Tested by the pros, this park allows skiers and snowboarders to take advantage of creative and unique designs with progression in mind. In addition to several novel features debuted at Bear Mountain’s Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails competition in September, this season’s Red Bull Plaza is shaping up to be unlike any other park in existence.
“The Red Bull Plaza just keeps getting bigger and better,” says Clayton Shoemaker, Director of Park Development at Big Bear Mountain Resorts. “Along with these new features, we’ve taken the urban setting to the next level, making the Red Bull Plaza a perfect place to hang out as well as perform tricks all season.”
The two new features include a 40-foot double-sided gateway rail and box that resembles a brick wall and a rideable cop shop, both designed by Bear Mountain and Snow Park Technologies, the same company behind professional freestyle events and often building larger than life playgrounds for well-known snowboarding professionals all over the world. Features from Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails include the Double-sided Billboard Wall-ride, 32-foot long parking structure and City Center.
Each feature in this park follows the unique, street-style skating and snowboarding theme that the Red Bull Plaza introduced to the snow sports industry in 2011.
These urban-inspired features are available exclusively in the Red Bull Plaza at Bear Mountain, adding to the exceptional skiing or snowboarding experience promised to you by Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.
