The Monster City Park at Cannonsburg

Cannonsburg has partnered up with Monster Energy to create a beast of a park.

Last year we took an underutilized area, put in two rope-tows servicing two separate terrain parks – an intermediate-level progression style park – “The Projects”, and a street-influenced advanced level park – “The City Park.” We started seeing photos and edits of skiers and riders in the park… “wow” didn’t even begin to cover it. The City Park turned into a showcase of the level of talent we have here at Cannonsburg.

Early this fall, Monster approached Cannonsburg with one goal: Let us get more involved. We weren’t sure how to do this… until they asked if they could sponsor the build-out of an entire park. An estimated $50,000 investment from both Monster and Cannonsburg means our biggest park build-out yet with some of the most creative features we’ve ever designed.

This season, we’re constructing nearly a dozen features for this park, and next season about half a dozen.

The park will be filled with urban features similar to what you’d see around the city… but with more snow, a rope tow instead of a banshee bungee, and no trespassing tickets.

Check out the course drawings we’ve put together, share them on Facebook, let us know what you think, then keep an eye out for the park opening date/party.

An Introduction

Last season was very different from anything Cannonsburg skiers and riders were familiar with. With new ownership came a drastic facelift.

We invested millions of dollars in a new snow-making system to make sure if mother nature let us down, we could still cover the hill.

We updated our website to showcase all Cannonsburg has to offer.

We cleared new runs and installed new lifts to give every single person that calls Cannonsburg “home” options.

We renovated The Shop to create an amazing retail experience for skiers, snowboarders and winter enthusiasts.

We put a new computer system in place to make pass processing, sales and all the behind the scenes things easier.

We revamped everything you’ve known about Cannonsburg.

Despite all of these amazing improvements, we kept hitting snags. The temperatures wouldn’t drop low enough for us to make snow. Then the website crashed due to an amazing amount of traffic… then the rope tows weren’t working properly! It all came to a head when the computer system wasn’t up to par on our first really busy day.

We could make excuses for all of that, but that’s not how we do things. We knew completely revamping Cannonsburg wasn’t going to be an easy task, but we could never have anticipated just how hard it would really be.

We worked out the bugs, though. We finally got the hill covered in a deep base with lifts to service all those runs… and got everyone’s season passes printed!

We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we worked out those bugs to make the best possible Cannonsburg for everyone.

 We are beyond excited for this season. Check this blog every so often for updates on just about anything going here!
