WhaT iT is: The skate terrain can be summed up by describing it as a park designed and built by people who do not skate! The snake run and bowl are brutal uneven and steep trannies which the locals have somehow managed to adapt to. The street side is not much better but has some more space to work the steep quarter, half box and banks. Maybe this park grows on you but the low quality concrete and poor design made for a short session while road tripping for us.

LocaTed: Polson is a tiny skatepark in the green space on the edge of downtown. The best thing about it is its location and ease of access. If you drive through Vernon on the highway you can't miss it on the south end of downtown.

Notes: » Don't leave your wallet (or favorite hoody) lying around or its gone.
