Woodward Park City is just what Parkites and the surrounding areas need—a community to inspire people to do more, feel more, and be more in a truly awesome environment. POWDR, a Park City-based company has deep local roots. Under the POWDR portfolio, Woodward Park City’s much anticipated grand opening will be this winter season.

Looking around at the backs of Park City’s army of Subarus, many are already stickered with Woodward Park City; local “kids” are sporting Woodward Park City t-shirts, hoodies and hats in anticipation. Local skier and 12-year-old Matthew Hunt exclaims, “It’s gonna be so cool. I’m excited for the half pipe and getting better at skiing tricks.” Matthew’s uncle, Paul Davis notes, “I think it’s going to be great—seeing people work hard out there is going to be really inspiring. It’ll make you say, ‘Huh, I should get after it too.’”

This huge indoor “playground” will integrate naturally and comfortably with the surrounding ski resorts. Woodward Park City provides the perfect year-round blend of training for a variety of sports followed by the opportunity to put that training to work in the mountains.

John Cumming, POWDR Founder and Chairman, told Leslie Thatcher, KPCW Radio News Director, “this is an incredible enhancement” to the Park City outdoor community. Centrally located between Salt Lake City and Park City, just two miles east of Parley’s Summit and just off I-80, Woodward Park City is accessible to everyone wanting to recreate and expand their repertoire of recreational activities.

Woodward brings 50 years of instruction to the Wasatch back. Woodward Park City is an all-in-one, year-round training facility for a dynamic range of diverse sports including, but not limited to, skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, BMX, mountain biking, cheerleading, climbing, and digital media.

Offering a local experience with programs from all-access passes to day camps to minicamps to special events, Woodward Park City will be a hub of activity for sports enthusiasts from all over the Wasatch Back.

Shaydar Edelmann, Woodward Park City General Manager explains, “Woodward Park City is for everyone. With drop-in sessions, lift tickets, lessons, day camps, monthly memberships and special events, there is always a way to play for kids and those who are kids at heart.”
