FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – City Council was presented with a proposal to Install a temporary Snowboard Park at Toboggan Hill at Monday’s meeting.

City staff has been in contact with Cole Andrews of Victory Skateboards to host a snowboard event as part of the High on Ice Community Events Program in February of next year.

The park would be installed on the south side of Toboggan Hill. “This particular course will follow the road and end at the skate park,” said Director of Recreation and Leisure Services Ross Deboer. “We deliberately put it on that side of the park.”
