About Catamount Terrain Parks
BOBCAT & PANTHER PARKS
Catamount Terrain Park’s medium and large parks are accessed by The Meadows Triple chairlift where you can enjoy a lift ride with a local park enthusiast or a Freeski/Freeride coach. In these parks you can find many features which include an assortment of rails, boxes, and jumps
Caterpillar Progression Park
The Caterpillar Progression Park is our small park and can be found at the base of the mountain near the Snowsports Learning Area. If you are just starting to explore freestyle skiing or riding then our Caterpillar Progression Park is the zone for you. This park includes a series of entry level rails and boxes designed to introduce beginners to freestyle elements. The features are smaller and set close to the ground to provide the best learning environment. After mastering your skills in the Progression Park, consider stepping up to the bigger park.
What makes our park so fun?

Terrain Parks may contain jumps, hits, ramps, banks, fun boxes, jibs, rails, half pipes, quarter pipes, snowcross, bump terrain, and other constructed or natural terrain features. Prior to using Freestyle Terrain, you are responsible for familiarizing yourself with Freestyle Terrain and obeying all instructions, warnings and signs.
- MAKE A PLAN. Every time you use Freestyle Terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and takeoff will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
- LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP. You are responsible for inspecting Freestyle Terrain before initial use and throughout the day. The features vary in size and change constantly due to snow conditions, weather, usage, grooming, and time of day. Do not jump blindly. Use a spotter when necessary.
- EASY STYLE IT. Always ride or ski in control and within your ability level. Do not attempt Freestyle Terrain unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely. You control the degree of difficulty you will encounter in using Freestyle Terrain, both on the ground and in the air.
- RESPECT GETS RESPECT. Respect Freestyle Terrain and others. Only one person on a feature at a time. Wait your turn and call your start. Always clear the landing area quickly. Respect all signs and do not enter Freestyle Terrain or use features when closed.
