Keystone to open A51 Park tomorrow with triple jump lane, pros already sessioning

Well it appears those living in Summit County, CO can add yet another item to their list of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season, as tomorrow Keystone will open their eagerly anticipated Area 51 Terrain Park to the delight of many. While Keystone had an amazing opening day park with a 30-foot jump and 10 park features, they can now add an impressive triple jump lane to their terrain park offerings.

TJ’s smile says it all as this park is a beauty.

On hand today to test the features were Nike 6.0 and Empire Attire team riders such as TJ Schiller, Simon Dumont,  and Jossi Wells. These skiers weren’t the only ones taking advantage of their pro credentials, as snowboarders Torstein Horgmo and Andreas Wiig also joined in on the action in the A51 park.

However, you won’t have to be pro to session this park tomorrow (you just might need to wear a tall tee), so set those alarms bright and early to get those laps when it will be a litle less crowded. Also be thankful that you have the luxury of riding such beautiful features, as your skiing counterparts to the East barely have their resorts open.
