"We're pumped to be able to fulfill the winter wishes of adrenaline junkies and get Hells Canyon open," says Ken Rider, Tamarack's director of resort sales and marketing. "The pipe is huge and it is right on the snowfront!" Hells Canyon is going to get the chance to make its mark early as the resort plays host to the US Snowboarding Grand Prix on February 24-25th when its walls will be built up to 22 feet, creating one of the biggest pipes ever used in national competition.
