Never heard of this park? Perhaps not, but in the past, you have probably hit this park on the way down from Ash Cat, back to the lift. It is under the Prospector Lift and includes a few fun features and jibs that are more fun than riding down lower Kendrick through the first-timers.

Jibbable features will pepper the park to keep your skiing and riding creative and fun

In addition to our massive inventory of rails and features, our superpipe is recognized as one of the best in North America!

Hot Springs

Thirty-five thousand feet below the surface of the earth, the heat of volcanic rock is released through countless fissures that spread out through the earth’s crust. In Hot Sulphur Springs, there are seven natural springs flowing above the largest fissure that has been flowing constantly for hundreds of years, surfacing at about 104ºF to 126ºF. Over 200,000 gallons of natural hot mineral-rich water flow through our 21 mineral pools and baths every day at controlled temperatures of 95º to 112ºF. We do not add chemicals, filter or re-circulate our mineral water.

Minerals in the water include sodium, sulfate, chloride, silica, potassium, calcium, fluoride, magnesium and trace elements of arsenic and lithium, all of which is good for the inside and outside of the body. There are no abrasive minerals or harmful elements in our water. Our water is drinkable as well.
