Volunteering is such an important part of what makes Whaleback a vibrant and fun mountain to ski/ride in the winter. The same is true with summer sports. Zero Gravity built the West Lebanon Skate Park in 2002 and it hasn't had a major layout change since. With the volunteer help of Whaleback Co-Owners and Zero Gravity founders, Frank and Dylan, Paul Cotes- Lebanon Recreation Department, Tom Hyser from Rollerblade, and a few other folks the Leb Skate Park got some much needed flow attention. All major features in the park were moved to give skaters a very different feel.
"My kids love skating here and the new layout has better lines to skate. It will be fun to have something new," said Tom Hyser. There is a healthy skate community in Lebanon and these changes will be welcomed. While there is still a lot of work to do on the park to repair ramps that have been used hard by the skaters, it is nice that sweat and volunteerism can still make a difference. We count on that at Whaleback. Stop by the Skate Park and check it out and let the Lebanon Parks Department and Whaleback know that you like the improvements to the park!
