Facilities and events

The all-weather track has been described as "the best all-weather mountain board track in Europe," and consists of a surfaced, contoured track with banks and humps. To one side of this is a stunts track, with rails and table-top features, on the other side is a beginners track, which is a grassy slope and uses the existing natural, gentle contours of the hill.
