This season Forum Snowboards will present The Streets at Seven Springs – a park dedicated to urban snowboarding, featuring an on-mountain replica of urban riding at its best.
The Streets brings a whole new meaning to urban snowboarding. The park building masters from Seven Springs have been working in conjunction with Forum Team Riders, Pat Moore and Nic Sauvé, pulling inspiration from the surrounding area of Pittsburgh.
“The Streets is taking the concept of what a snowpark should be to a whole new level,” says Nic Sauvé. “I envy the kids who will grow up riding it!” Pat Moore says, “The park looks so sick. I’m excited for the snow to come to bring it to life! I think we’ll be seeing some real good snowboarders coming out of PA in the near future.”

Urban snowboarding is supposed to be fun and accessible, but when you have angry security guards, passing cars or just can’t find the right features, your ability to actually enjoy it becomes limited. This is where The Streets comes in. The Streets offers a wide array of rails, ledges, gaps and wall rides, all built with the look and feel of riding in your local town.
“Being able to bring this level of urban features to a full access resort is something we used to only dream of,” says Forum Brand Manager Kevin Winkel. “The features that Pat and Nic have designed with Seven Springs and Snow Park Technologies will forever change how resorts look at building parks."
Seven Springs was ranked the number one terrain park on the East Coast by Transworld Readers for 2011/12.
