Half pipe opens

Washington's only half pipe opens this weekend at Stevens Pass.

Not sure you have the skills to ride it?  No worries.  Just "easy style it".  That means, start small and work your way up.  And, by "up", I mean "up the wall".  Get the feel for making turns as your head up the wall and build from there.

Remember:  The half pipe can be safe and isn't for park rats only.  It's a fantastic training tool.  Spend some time in the pipe and see how much better you ride all over the mountain.
