Blackcomb’s halfpipe is in the midst of a transformation from 18 to a 22 footer. ASP started work on the pipe early this week and with over 100cm’s of new snow in the last ten days there is plenty of snow on hand to complete the build.

Arena Snowparks has teamed up with fellow Global Snowpark Alliance partner Development Snowparks of New Zealand to present the new 22 foot pipe shaper the Global Cutter. The Cutter will be making it’s North American debut at Blackcomb during the World Ski and Snowboard Festival April 16 to 25. The Cutter will then go down to Mt. Hood for SAM Magazines Cutter’s Camp May 9 to 16.
