Tune into Mountain Movers, this Thursday on the National Geographic Channel and follow the SPT crew as they build, transport and help install the newest addition to the Red Bull Plaza in episode #6 of Mountain Movers on the National Geographic Channel.
Back in 1997, Bear Mountain was where Snow Park Technologies got their start and they returned last winter to help us build a ground breaking 12-foot tall, 40-foot long Up- Flat- Down Box!
“We’re really psyched to have this SPT project here. Even though we probably have one of the best parks in the country and really embrace that whole culture, we’ve really never done anything of this magnitude,” said Brent Tregaskis, general manager of Bear Mountain.
