Nike 6.0 greatest hits.

One of the things I've been working on lately is a park installation at Mt. Seymour for Nike 6.0. The idea is to take iconic urban features and build them in one place. In an Olympic year, a lot of kids find themselves either unable or uninterested in participating in any of the Olympic shenanigans so this whole thing is for them. By the time the "Greatest Hits" park is done you will be able to go up Seymour and ride facsimiles of three legendary spots that have seen a lot of coverage in ski and snowboard media over the years.

We started with the Quebec's Red Ledge. It was made by the folks at snowpark solutions and installed on the 28th of January and then on Saturday the 30th was opened to the public. The Nike 6.0 version of the Red Ledge is a little smaller and a little less steep than the real thing, but it's been awesome to see people come out and take a swing at it. Here is Duff testing it out.



You can check all of Geoff Andruik's photos from the Red Ledge Jam here and the video that we made here.

The next event is coming up on February 20th. We're recreating the famous Burlington High rail but this time there will be no concessions on size. This thing is going to be Identical. Come check it out or sign up for the jam. We're going to have some very special guests there with all the heads in town for the Olympics.
