Appalachian Mountain was cited for its terrain park, winning a "Best of the Outdoors" award from Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine. The publication described the facility as "two massive terrain parks with creative features, more boxes than FedEx, more rails than Amtrak, and bigger hits than Britney Spears. That's why this small mountain has become ground zero for park culture in the Southeast."

Appalachian has added a Burton Progression Park this season for those who need work on the fundamentals first.

Blue Ridge Outdoors' terrain park runners up were The Spot at Seven Springs, PA and Pro Park at Wisp Resort, Md.
