Snowboard friendly, Cascade Mountain has over 34 snowboarding runs to pair with the four different terrain parks at the resort.

Anyone looking to bang out some new tricks can get them in, as the park boasts over 15 rails and 10 jumps. Courses rotate regularly, giving everyone the change that they need to constantly challenge themselves.
