Woodward Mountain Park


A playground on snow filled with featured terrain, the Woodward Start Park and the adjacent First Rays covered conveyor carpet lift are where first time skiers and riders start their journey as a Woodward athlete. Built and designed to effortlessly guide users through each section, the Woodward Start Park features slight contours in terrain aimed at controlling speed while gradually raising the bar, making for the smoothest transition in learning. The Woodward Start Park maintains an amplified tactical and visual experience for first timers, making their introduction to sliding on snow a fun and comfortable process.

Located just outside of the Sunrise Lodge rental shop, both the First Rays carpet and the Woodward Start Park are FREE for all guests to access during regular operating hours. Pick up a free access ticket at Sunrise Lodge.
