The Story of Air + Style’s 16 Story Ramp

Air + Style is just around the corner and some of the best snowboarders and skiers in the world will be competing this weekend at an event that’s coming to the US for the first time. The competition will start atop a 16 story ramp covered in real snow that will lead to the launch. Before you get the pros to do this, that ramp will be constructed. You didn’t think a gargantuan ramp as tall as Godzilla would just erect itself. It requires tons of steel, a construction crew of hundreds to build something of this scale with city permits, legal red tape, and the []


Extended Weekend Means There’s More To Do

While some people choose to honor the office of the Presidency by going to a cheesy car dealership for a sale, others will take this time for a short trip here for some big fun. We have 40 total trails open between here and our sister resort, Snow Summit. One day session lift ticket will give you access to both mountains and there’s even a free Inter-Mountain Shuttle that leaves every 30 minutes to take you back and forth between the two resorts. When we tell you that you have access to both resorts, one huge benefit is our night session at Snow []

Still the Best Conditions in Southern California

We don’t miss an opportunity to make real snow. Last night was one of those opportunities and we’re hoping to blast the snow guns again tonight and tomorrow night. This is how we continue to have the best conditions in all of Southern California. Snow is made of water and air. When we atomize water with high pressure compressed air while the temperature is low and the air is dry, it turns to snow. Natural or man made, it’s real snow. Just like the real snow that will be used to blanket the 16 story ramp and giant kicker for []
