Action-sports center Woodward Tahoe open to public
Woodward Tahoe is a 33,000-square-foot indoor facility at the base of Boreal Mountain Resort offering multi-level Olympic trampolines, a Super Tramp, a concrete skate park for skateboarding and BMX biking, a pump track and skatelite ramps to foam pits for aerial ski, snowboard, BMX and skateboard training.
A world-class, action-sports training center and youth camp, Woodward Tahoe originally opened earlier this year on June 9 for its inaugural summer of youth programming. Located at Boreal ski resort off Interstate 80, the facility is now open every day until April 14, 2013.
Hours of operations will be 11 am to 8 pm during the end of summer and into the fall season. Hours of operation will mirror Boreal's (9 am to 9 pm) once the ski resort opens for winter business.
In addition to opening Woodward Tahoe's indoor Bunker facility, the Eastern Front Skatepark and world-class BMX dirt park, known as "The Trenches," will also be available.
Accessing the Woodward Tahoe Bunker and outdoor campus is simple. Buy a Woodward Tahoe season pass, known as a "Bunker Pass," for the current pass rate of $279 and enjoy eight months of access. A Bunker Pass provides access every day to Woodward Tahoe for two-hour sessions (outdoor campus facilities available until the snow flies only, and on a limited schedule).
A Bunker Pass includes a CORE Membership (value $49), which enables access to basic training sessions daily. Basic training is designed to teach everything you need to know in order to safely use the facilities while also giving you a solid dose of skill development. Each zone in the Woodward Tahoe Bunker has specific training and members will need to be cleared in each zone prior to use.
If buying a season pass isn't for you, another option is a CORE Membership ($49). A CORE Membership enables you to access all Woodward Tahoe facilities and participate in all requisite basic training sessions.
These training sessions last approximately two hours and provide Woodward Tahoe users everything they will need to know in order to use the trampolines, foam pits and ramps in a safe and productive manner.
Once a CORE Member, guests can return to Woodward Tahoe for only $25 per two-hour session. All members must have completed basic training for each zone prior to free practice. Open sessions for all users will last a minimum of two hours and we invite our members to stay and play longer pending capacity and volume. Any person that purchases a CORE membership can apply their
If you're just into skateboarding or BMX, a $15 limited skatepark ticket will be available (no CORE Membership required). If you decide you want to play in the rest of the facility you can upgrade ($34) to a CORE Membership or a Bunker Pass ($264). Also, CORE Members only pay $10 for skate/BMX only sessions.
Woodward Tahoe will also offer Full-Day Camps for $149, a 6-hour semi-private coaching session with a max ratio of four students to one coach. Half-Day Camps are just $89 and include a three-hour semi-private coaching session. Also on the menu, Fall Dryland Training Series, adult only late sessions, private coaching, Woodward Tahoe Team, and weekend camps with details coming soon.
