September 16, 2016 The course is all finished!

Looks and skates great.  Chad Roy and his crew did an amazing job.  We've still got some work to do on the building before we can open though.  Looks like it will be early November.

 

August 24, 2016 Construction continues!

Framing for most of the ramps is in place, and the welders have installed all the rails.  It's really coming together!

August 13, 2016  Construction of the course has begun!

Chad Roy and his crew from New York arrived on the 8th and started construction the following day.  They started with the big platform, China bank, and quarter pipe wall.  Construction is progressing quickly, and I will post more photos as the park takes shape.  Stay tuned...

Interior walls are down.  The owners of the building are now doing their portion of the renovations.   In August, Chad Roy and his crew from New York will be heading down to Asheville to build the park.  Construction of the park will take about a month, and we hope to be open in the fall.
