At 450-feet long with towering 22-foot walls, Tamarack Resort’s monstrous Hells Canyon SuperPipe is one of just six in North America to feature the new Olympic standard – 22-foot walls--four feet higher than typical pipes.

Hells Canyon has opened just in time. The return of the country’s greatest snowboard competition – the Chevy US Snowboarding Grand Prix – is just one month away.

World-class snowboarders return to Tamarack February 9-10 for the second stop of the series to compete in the SuperPipe and on the snowboard cross course.

The SuperPipe provides a great venue not only for the world-class competitors in the upcoming Grand Prix, but for athletes near and far who want to train in one of the top pipes on the continent.

Last year’s inaugural stop at Tamarack brought crowds in the thousands to cheer on the who’s who of the sport. This year promises to provide just as much high-flying competition and entertainment.

“We love being able to offer such world-class amenities so athletes can really push the sport,” said Ken Rider, Director of Resort Sales and Marketing. “With the pipe right at the base and visible from our Village, anyone can enjoy the show whether they’re on the mountain or enjoying après fare from our patios.”

The Grand Prix events are free to all spectators. Check the Grand Prix page at for the latest schedule, news on which riders will show up to show off, and high-flying video from last year’s competition.

Having the only pipe of this size in the region provides a unique opportunity for teams and clubs to come train on the new Olympic standard. The world-class recreation amenities combined with Village and lodging facilities just steps away creates an enviable environment for training the next generation of freeride stars.
