PARK CITY, UT – Park City Mountain Resort announced Kazu Kokubo would be the latest addition to the Park City All Star Team. Kazu will call Park City his home mountain and will do a majority of his training at PC’s world renowned Eagle Superpipe, and utilize the Monster Energry sponsored airbag while he concentrates on honeing his halfpipe skills for this upcoming season’s competitions.
“Kazu spent a lot of time training in Park City last winter and decided it is the ideal training ground to continue to push him, and the sport, to the next level,” said Jeremy Cooper, terrain park manager at Park City Mountain Resort. ”Kazu has amazing style, which is why he is one of my favorite riders to watch whether he is boosting the pipe or dropping big lines in the backcountry. Straight up: Kazu is sick! He is the perfect addition to the Park City All Star team.”
Kazu entered the international snowboard scene back in 2003, and since 2010 has become a major contender for podium space at the X Games and both the US and European Open. He is also featured in multiple videos, with credits in two Burton films, 6 Standard films, and even a few gues appearances in Seven Samurai’s films.
“I’ve snowboarded all over the world and felt most at home at Park City last winter. I’m excited to be able to spend more time in Park City this winter and am really looking forward to being a part of the Park City All Star team,” said Kazu.
