It’s been a busy winter for Arena Snowparks. We started the season off on Blackcomb Mountain by building their first 22ft pipe shaped by the Global Cutter. After that it was off to Nova Scotia for the 2011 Canada Winter Games where ASP was responsible for the construction of the ski and snowboard halfpipes and the snowcross course. Right in the middle of the two pipe builds for the Games we went over to Norway to work on the Slope Style course for the Arctic Challenge.

In early April we where back in Whistler working on the venues for the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival. Along with working on the halfpipe ASP was in the valley building the Grand Opening Slope Style for Monster. After that we broke down the coarse and built the Big Air for the finals of the AFP World Championships.

The fabrication shop was kept busy through the winter working on special projects for WhistlerBlackcomb, Telus, Quiksilver, Rays Board Shop, Red Bull, Oakley, Monster and Camp of Champions. Next up for ASP is preparing for the Camp of Champions summer Ski and Snowboard camp. The shop will be working on new rails and features for COC and construction will begin on the snowpark at the beginning of June. With record snow fall in Whistler this winter it promises to be an amazing summer up on the Glacier.
