If you’ve been anticipating this year’s ski season, and are up-to-date on the happenings in Park City, you’re probably aware of the newest action-sports resort that opened just a week ago. But if you’re not au courant, fear not. It’s our pleasure to introduce you to Woodward: a world-class, year-round action sports resort that’s changing the game of all-season recreation.
Woodward may be a tenderfoot on the Utah resort scene, but its offerings are nothing short of thrilling. The grand opening took place on December 14th, and world-famous athletes such as skateboarder Tony Hawk and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson were in attendance for the celebration! Woodward has both internal and external facilities, visitors and guests have their choice of drop-in sessions, all-access passes, day sessions, lift tickets, lessons, summer day camps, monthly memberships and special events. As stated on the Woodward website, “there is always a way to play for kids, and kids at heart.”

In a press release regarding the start of ski season, Park City Magazine gave us this tantalizing description of everything to look forward to:
On tap for the new 125-acre Woodward Park City, woodwardparcity.com: tubing, skiing, snowboarding, BMX, cheer, trampolines, ramps, parkour, digital media, and more. The campus’s model is a progressive one, which caters to all levels of athletes. For example, terrain park newbies can get a taste of the action on the Start Park and eventually work their way up to a 22-foot halfpipe. And for those who lament Gorgoza’s passing, there will be 10 (or more) tubing lanes. A 66,000-square-foot indoor facility with all the full-throttle accoutrements of action sports (think trampolines, foam pits, spring floor, skateboard/BMX-like concrete park features …) accompanies the extensive, outdoor amenities. Daily lift tickets to Woodward will cost $50; and a month-long, all-access membership is $100.
