chairopen4 A small ski hill near Edmonton grows up, and gains Red Mountain’s old Silverlode Chair.

And it sounds like the management of the hill, Sunridge Ski Area, has taken a government sponsored struggling hill and turned it into a good amenity for the booming population of Strathcona…

With two terrain parks, freestyle skiers and boarders can start out on the beginner park, which consists of a smaller rail, a box and a spine jump. The run just beside the Orange T-bar is dedicated to the larger terrain park which consists of three rails, various table top jumps, spine jumps and a three barrel “kick jump” where you can kick off the stacked barrels for some strange reason. Terrain park addicts are an odd bunch.

It’s interesting that the triple chair replaces the old "Red T-Bar", is that a coincidence?
