SQUAW VALLEY, CA. -Snow Park Technologies (SPT), with a resume including the ESPN Winter X-Games, Dew Tour and signature Red Bull events such as the world’s first cubed 22 foot pipe built at Squaw Valley last spring, look to outdo themselves once again by officially partnering up with Squaw Valley USA to elevate the resort’s terrain parks and half-pipe to among the top in North America. SPT will be working with Squaw Valley to improve all facets of the resort’s terrain park program through design collaboration, recruitment and development. SPT will also be working with the resort to develop new park andpipe-related events in the years to come.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with SPT,” said Andy Wirth, Squaw Valley’s president and chief executive officer. “Our goal is to have the quality of our parks and pipe ultimately match the unbeatable caliber of our mountain-and there is truly no one better in the industry to help us achieve this goal. SPT is the best of the best.”
