Snowboarding in Park City
Snowboarding was cleverly conceptualized by an avid surfer who dreamt of riding the powdery winter landscape in the mid-60s. The sports steadily gained supporters and enthusiasts; but it was not until the 2002 Winter Olympics held here in Park City that this winter sport gained much recognition. Top snowboarders troop to Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort (Utah) during the season to ride the half pipes and terrain parks of these resorts.
