|Switch Academy - Learning Tricks at Mountain Creek |
Switch Academy at Mountain Creek is the coolest concept. Drop-in freestyle lessons for learning tricks to use in the big terrain parks at South Peak or the beginner park at Vernon Peak.
Here Lauren takes a lesson with Mountain Creek Terrain Park Instructor and Ambassador Sal Good and attempts her first 180. By the end of the sesh she's done it backside, and switch, and the ollie is coming right along too. It's on the vid! Next stop, 360, and getting a little more air.
We interview Homer, Head of Operations at South Peak about Switch Academy and the Parks that currently have 57 features and are switched up every two weeks. And we catch some freestyle high fashion happening downstairs.
Whether you're checking out the park for the first time, or you're an experienced park rider looking to up your game, Switch Academy let's you explore the jumps, rails, quarter-pipes, boxes, jibs and wall rides alongside qualified (and FUN!) coaches.
