Ride along with Tyson
In an effort to complete an assignment for my Magazine writing class I got the number of Tyson Goodrich from a friend of mine. Tyson is the man behind Park City's half pipe. A pipe that has hosted some of the biggest events in snowboarding. A location that has been at the center of the progression of the sport for a long time. I am writing the story and submitting it, we will see if it gets published. If not I will post it on here later. The evening was eye opening to say the least. There is a lot that goes into making and maintaining the 550 foot long, 22 foot pipe.
When you are watching the upcoming olympics on TV, take a second to admire the handy work of a skilled craftsmen. These guys are artists sculpting snow with the precision of surgeons.
