Events like ski super pipe, snowboard big, snowmobile freestyle, snowboard cross, and ski slopestyle are just a few of the things you can check out at ESPN’s, increasingly popular, Winter X Games. But have you ever wondered “How are these crazy half pipes, huge ramps, and giant slalom courses built?” Well with help from Chris “Gunny” Gunnarson, ESPN Winter X Games course designer, and TV producer Jason Carbone, Chevrolet is set to bring you an exciting new show on National Geographic called, Mountain Movers.
Some of the tricks performed by X games athletes are flat out astonishing, but equally as astonishing is how they develop these crazy courses big air ramps and half pipes.
“Building snow parks is tricky business under the best of conditions. Mountain Movers is about taking on the big challenges and having the right tools to get the job done,” Gunnarson said. “I know Chevy trucks can handle the heavy duty work we do, and in the nastiest environments a mountain can offer because I use them every day.”
Get ready to see the action unfold later this year as Snow Park Technologies, owned by Gunnarson, takes on building new and innovate sports venues for the show. We at College Chevy are anxious to see how Chevrolet trucks fair conditions, with heavy machinery, and difficult terrain. We feel pretty confident Chevy trucks are up to the task. Seeing how those awesome snow parks are built should be pretty entertaining, too!
