Skate On

Hear that? It’s the sweet sound of the skate park. Not just for skateboarders (bikers and scooters utilize it, too), skate parks are the alternate heart of a community. Riders of all ages congregate here to learn, hone their craft or simply hang out with friends and spectate. In the Vail Valley, there are now three skate parks: one in Gypsum, one in Edwards and now in Vail. Each park is unique, just like the community that it serves, accommodating a variety of abilities. “When I moved to Vail, in October of 1999, there were only two skate parks in the Vail Valley, one in Vail, and one in Gypsum,” says C.J.
