The super pipe on Blackcomb is in the best shape ever! Locals & visiting skiers/riders are stoked on the super pipe conditions. Ace pipe shapers Andy Morrison & Kirby Litzenberger have been dedicated to the super pipe all season ensuring all factors are dialed for the super pipe. The groomers are meticulous with the pipe pitch, shape, vert & even the drop in ramp is perfect to gain big air off the first hit. Canadian team rider Justin Lamoureux had nothing but good things to say about the pipe conditions commenting the pipe is as good as it gets during the Telus Ski & Snowboard Festival in April. Ryan Mckeeman has also been ripping the super pipe with his skier students & also said the super pipe is awesome right now.» Read More »
