12/28/15 UPDATE: Sipapu's two organic terrain parks, Flight School and Playground, are currently open, and we anticipate opening Don Diego and Pedro's in January. Please follow our snow report for the latest updates on our four terrain parks.
Sipapu has four distinct terrain parks, including the only organic terrain parks in the state. Playground and Flight School, our two organic parks, are built entirely from resources found on our mountain and in the surrounding Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Our terrain parks offer lines and features for all skill levels, providing skill-building challenges while giving you room for creativity. Advanced skiers and riders will find over a dozen features - including a triple combo - on Don Diego, our newest and biggest terrain park. Pedro's Park offers beginner features where you can learn your first jump or take your tricks to the next level. Don't miss C-Wall on Playground, our brand-new 30-foot wall ride. And Flight School is all about airtime.
Newest and biggest terrain park
Skill Level: Advanced - Expert
Location: On Don Diego
Features: Find around a dozen features, including a 10-foot round torpedo rail, 20-foot A-frame box with a dragon tongue (including two urban take-offs and a straight mount), and one huge 38-foot tabletop gap jump. Additional features include a 20-foot jump, 18-foot gap, 10-foot long box, 14-foot flat rail, 8-foot long 6-inch wide flat rail, and a 10-foot gap with a barrel bonk and jump.
Here's what our terrain park manager says about Don Diego: "This park is more aggressive and more superior to any park in the area because of its skill level and link-ability. Skiers and riders will be able to link more features in this park than in anywhere else in New Mexico."
Organic, all about airtime
