Burton Snowboards, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) and Snow Park Technologies have teamed up to create Stash Park, an area of the JHMR in Jackson Hole, Wyo., that uses the natural terrain as the design for four different snowboard runs.
“The Stash concept is to use whatever indigenous materials and features the mountain has to offer — like rock walls, trees and drops — then enhance them a bit to create the ultimate natural park so riders can take their freestyle riding to the next level,” said Jeff Boliba, global resort director at Burton Snowboards.
Numerous professional riders have contributed to the design of “The Stash,” including Burton team rider Jussi Oksanen and Jackson pro riders Bryan Iguchi, Rob Kingwill and Travis Rice. Some features include a chainsaw-carved moose, created by artist Bob King, rock jumps and a wooden “dance floor.”
The Stash is still being constructed but is scheduled to open this winter.
Interested clients can also book a Stash and Cache package, which includes four nights of lodging in the Village Center Inn with ski-in/ski-out accommodations, including access to a kitchen and three-day lift tickets at JHMR. The package also includes a half-day Stash Park lesson as well as lunch for three days at Nick Wilsons, which is located at the base of the tram. The package is priced from $575 per person, based on double occupancy.
