Once the secret underground spot for local Utah skiers and snowboarders, The Bonze Zone has morphed into somewhat of a warrior test for Utah’s most dedicated park rippers.
After word spread widely among the snowboard and ski communities across the Wasatch Front, the park was discovered by authorities and the illegal terrain park faced brutal destruction.
Fast forward 8 years and the terrain park that once flourished in the woods atop Guardsman Pass is now officially sponsored by Brighton Resort. Since 2015, The Bone Zone at Brighton has established its self as the place to be for park rats who just can’t wait any longer. The park is free to hike and features some awesome, creative wooden jibs.
As soon as the first snows hit Big Cottonwood Canyon, the Bone Zone sprung to life this year thanks to the work of an enthusiastic team of shovelers.
The vision by Ted Borland and Alex Andrews among a host other Utah rippers is helping to build a fantastic community of like-minded riders who invest their personal time and energy to make the most of the early season terrain park.
The Bone Zone is not known for its big jumps or perfectly manicured take-off’s but the contagious energy is undeniable.
If you enjoy making the most out of a small features, spending time with good friends, and taking some hard slams along the way– the Bone Zone might just be the place for you to ride this early season. As always if you want to get the most out of this sweet partnership between Brighton and the local park community, digging the features is not only encouraged but totally required.
