A success story long in the making. The Skaters Coalition for Concrete in Pagosa Springs made it happen.
Some of our volunteers worked on this project, where the tile was 'sold' to folks: for $40, your logo was laser etched in a block of the tile:
Our neighbors are trying to raise a modest amount of money for installation of a full pipe at the Laramie Skatepark. Help them out if you can.
Team Pain is bringing a bit of the Great White North to Golden.
For years, Vail would assemble a modular skatepark on its public parking garage each summer, and then tear it down every fall. Many sites were proposed over the years for a permanent skatepark, but they were all rejected. The NIMBY-ism seemed strong in Vail. After years of getting nowhere, Vail finally approved the construction of a permanent skatepark to be squeezed in between the multi-story public parking garage. Skaters will now be neatly tucked out of view of the rest of the public, and won't be able to enjoy the natural beauty of Vail while skating. Still, I salute those who finally came up with a solution that ended Vail's feet dragging.
Things are moving along great at the Skatepark site. Here is a picture from last week of the bowl taking shape. Looks like great weather the rest of the week! We'll post more pictures soon. Have a great day!
