Nike 6.0 GREATEST HITS Park at Mt. Seymour

Nike 6.0 GREATEST HITS Park at Mt. Seymour

While magazines, filmers and athletes always try to find fresh locations, there are a handful of jib spots around North America so legendary that it seems we never go a season without a crew sessioning at at least one of them. And all the years of innovation that have gone down at these spots makes them relevant in any winter.

So this winter, Nike 6.0 is creating the GREATEST HITS Park at Mt. Seymour, BC to support the local shred community and bring innovative park design to Mt. Seymour by recreating three legendary features that have played a part in snow-culture history.

“Mt. Seymour is a sick local Vancouver mountain that has always been down to support our athletes.” Jake Largess, Nike 6.0 Ski Mentor. “TJ Schiller has been spending time at Seymour this winter and the Nike 6.0 GREATEST HITS Park is going to elevate the already insane park.”

Nike 6.0 is putting the power in your hands to vote on your favorite feature that you’d like to see recreated at Mt. Seymour. Nike 6.0 has selected six features that have graced magazine pages and been sessioned by the top riders in some of the best videos to date. Features include the Utah Wallride, the Vermont DoubleSet, Calgary Triple Green Rails, Vancouver Delbrook Rail, Utah Rail Gardens, and Montreal Big O Pyramids. You can go to [https://www.nike6.com] and cast your vote through January 30, 2010.

The chosen feature will be unveiled on Feb. 1, and built by the local crew, Hangman Productions, in mid-February.

Nike 6.0 Greatest Hits:

Utah Wallride: This massive concrete monolith sits near the renown Utah backcountry spot known as Grizzly Gulch—a proud testament to urban boarding right in the midst of a powdery playland. Due to its proximity to the pro-snowboarder Mecca that is Salt Lake City, the Utah Wallride has served as breeding grounds for many a sick video session.

Vermont Double Set: This beast of a spot offers up some serious education in Burlington, Vermont serves up a cornucopia of options for urban domination. Here’s the rundown: a savage double set with a kinked flat bar on one side, a toe-jam kinked flat bar on the other, and a closeout drop rail on top. There’re even wallride possibilities if the fancy so strikes you.

Calgary Triple Green Rails: This triple set of round metal rails sits within the frigid confines of Alberta’s capital city. It’s no surprise, then, that Sandbox Films’ Calgary contingent kills this spot the hardest.

Vancouver Delbrook: This fat, juicy round rail in Vancouver’s Delbrook Park is an oldie but a goody that always has a session going when snow lands in the city. With wooden stairs and grass on either side (instead of, say, cheese grater metal or gravel covered cement), this fairly low consequence (albeit lengthy) rail lends itself beautifully to technical wizardry and serious ante-upping.

Utah Rail Gardens: This seminal spot in a northwestern suburb of Salt Lake City has helped shape the face of present day street riding. Featuring multiple mini-rail sets that are perfect for trick learning and combo-ing up, the Rail Gardens are the go-to warm-up and/or film spot for pros in the SLC area.

Montreal Big O Pyramids: Like mini, shreddable versions of the grand entryway to Paris’s Louvre Museum, Montreal’s “Big O” Pyramids have produced beaucoup video footage over the past few years. Riding-wise, these triangular structures at a renowned city landmark present many methods of attack—from the simple and stylish to the super tech.

Big ups to Hangman Productions, Mt. Seymour crew and Snow Park Solutions for making all of this possible.
