The Gold Link and Cascade Terrain Parks are part of a complete freestyle pod off the Painter Boy and Goldlink lifts. This translates to a literal playground for the park enthusiast, highlighted by the ability to progress from one park â€“ and one feature size â€“ to the next.
The Cascade location also is ideal for larger park features, offering a consistent fall line for the jib park. Cascade is blessed with good afternoon light, allowing for better visibility, and itâ€™s proximity to mountain operations headquarters means snowcat operators have easier access and more time for preening features.
