The opening of the Grizzly terrain park section has added four new acres of features to test the skills of riders of all levels while boosting the size of Sunshine Village’s famed Rogers Terrain Park by one-third.

Skiers and boarders now can access 12 full acres of the Rockies’ best jumps, boxes and rails while enjoying the spectacular beauty of Sunshine Village.

”We’re really excited about all the new features which add so much more to our terrain park experience,” said Tim Hyndman, Terrain Park Supervisor. ”We’ve received extremely positive feedback about the four biggest and boldest jibs we’ve ever built at Sunshine Village.”

Grizzly has awesome features ranging from small to extra-large, including four large and extra large jibs. The highlight is a 24 foot long by four foot high box, professionally painted by local artists Don Petersen and Anthony Orsatti from New World Samurai Tattoo Studio in Canmore.

”We were approached by Sunshine staff to create a piece for the terrain park and we jumped at the opportunity,” said Petersen. ”We’re thrilled with the way it turned out and look forward to doing more work in such a fantastic venue.”
