TRUCKEE, Calif. – Woodward Tahoe at Boreal Mountain Resort launched Saturday to massive crowds who came out to see their favorite pro athletes participate in demos and sign autographs all day.

The athlete line-up included huge names in action sports, such as Tony Hawk, Olympic gold medalist Hannah Teter, Todd Richards, Neal Hendrix, Ryan Nyquist, Mike Vallely, Curren Caples, Tanner Hall, Tom Schaar, Chas Guldemond, Sammy Carlson and many more.

Woodward Tahoe’s 33,000 square-foot indoor Bunker opened to the general public with a ribbon cutting ceremony, while kids of all ages lined up for several hours to get a chance to use the Super Tramp and other tumbling and trampoline features, while watching their favorite pros on the brand new indoor concrete skatepark, Parkour Zone, and other incredible features.

Boreal Mountain also opened the on-mountain terrain park to locals for the 3rd Annual Summer Shred. For more information on 2012 summer camps at Woodward Tahoe, visit
