A superpipe is a large halfpipe structure used in extreme sports such as BMX, skateboarding and snowboarding. For winter sports the term “superpipe” is used to describe a halfpipe built of snow, which has walls 64 ft high and spreads the width of 22 ft. Compared to the 18 ft walls Three Rivers League tore through today at the final ½ pipe event you might say a superpipe is made for giants.
Mt Hood Meadows has no plans to build a superpipe, which is good news for the rider who ends up in the bottom of the pipe today. Schools including Willsonville, Lake Oswego, Lakeridge, Oregon City and West Linn got a final shot to qualify for State however and Luke Campbell took first for boys with Breck Bienshline who took first place for the girls.
State qualifiers will meet again March 9-12 to show off their skills and compete with leagues from around the state of Oregon.
