WATCH: Fenway Big Air Practice Runs Sneak Peek

By

Sneak a first look at the massive 140ft set up in Boston’s famed Fenway Park. The event will held this Thursday and Friday so if you are in town might want to look into tickets. I like how  The Globe described its dimensions in a way only those familiar with Fenway would understand…

“The action will start 140 feet above Fenway Park’s center field, roughly four times the height of the Green Monster. From that breathtaking height (think of the light stanchions that encircle the park), some of the world’s best freeskiers and snowboarders will step onto a snow-covered ramp.

Accelerating to 35-40 m.p.h., they will descend to 52 feet, and it’s there, at roughly the elevation of the upper-deck seats, that Big Air gets its name. Competitors will take flight — flipping, spinning, and twisting multiple times — before coming to rest near what two months from now will be home plate.”
