Woodward Peace Park Championships
COMING TO MT. BACHELOR IN APRIL 2020
The 2020 Woodward Peace Park Championships is a culmination event put on by POWDR, a family-owned adventure lifestyle company and Mt. Bachelor’s parent company, and Danny Davis, X Games and Winter Dew Tour decorated professional snowboarder, who together founded Woodward Peace Park in 2019. The partnership builds on Davis’ original vision to create a new type of on-mountain experience that reinvents freestyle terrain with a focus on fun, flow and progression, and scales that vision for public access to the Peace Park experience for those who love sliding on snow. The 2020 Woodward Peace Park Championships, taking place at the same time as RendezVan in April, 2020, will continue the model of being a peer judged contest for invited pros.
“I’m a big fan of Mt. Bachelor — and good music and van culture — so bringing the Woodward Peace Park Championships to Mt. Bachelor on the same week as RendezVan was a no brainer,” says Davis. “The inaugural Woodward Peace Park Championships at Boreal California in 2019 elevated the experience and I can’t wait to collaborate with Woodward Mt. Bachelor and see how the event comes to life on Mt. Bachelor’s unique volcanic terrain.”
The Woodward Peace Park Championships course will be designed in collaboration with Davis, Woodward Bachelor terrain park team and Snow Park Technologies. While the Peace Park Championships event itself will be private, invitation-only for professional snowboarders, there will be opportunities for the general public to experience the event. Guests at POWDR resorts across the country will be able to submit a Woodward Mountain Park video part to win a spot to compete in the Championships. Submission instructions and contest rules will be announced soon. Also, the general public will be able to access the Peace Park Championship course and ride with the pros on a special "public day" on Sunday, April 26, 2020. Access will be granted to skiers and snowboarders with the purchase of a regular all mountain lift ticket or any of the Mt. Bachelor season or multi-day pass products.
