Flip Side Skatepark News & Upcoming Events
For the first time ever we are offering a camp for girls. This camp will even have female instructors. We've always had girls coming to camp, but they have been heavily outnumbered by boys. This camp is aimed at girls who are new to skateboarding and will also challenge those who can already ride the mini ramp. There will be one-on-one teaching time, group games, fun activities, video analysis and an hour of free skate where campers can privately enjoy the facility every day.
Flip Side is open for the season as of Wednesday May 22nd, 2013! We're stoked to be back, so come by the park to skate, bike, or rollerblade and have some fun! We hope to see you soon.
As summer comes to an end and the cold rolls in, that's a sign that means Flip Side will be closing soon for the winter. Sunday October 2rd will be the last day of the 2011 season for us — our best season to date! We'll be having a free BBQ to wrap things up, so come shred and hang out with the Flip Side gang one last time!
We're having our last King of the Ramps skate contests of the season next weekend at Flip Side! Friday night September 30th at 7pm we're having our last mini ramp contest of the year! Following that up, Saturday we're having our last street contest of the year, starting at 3pm. We've got some sick prizes for the winners, so come through and enter for a chance to win big!

Flip Side Skatepark is now closed for the winter! We'd like to thank everyone who supported the skatepark this summer by coming out and skating, signing up for a summer camp or even just telling a friend about us. Have a great winter, see you in May!
At first there was a little confusion about when Flip Side would be closing this year. We've finalized the date with the city and its officially September 26th! We hate to see it come to and end as much as all of you do! We hope everyone will come out one last time before we close for the winter and we want to thank everyone for the support this season! See you in May 2010.
We hate it as much as you, but the season is already coming to an end soon! Saturday September 25th and Sunday September 26th at Flip Side and we're throwing two contests before we close out the year next weekend. Tons of prizes and giveaways so make sure to be there and skate before our last weekend!
There are still a couple spaces open for campers to the Skateboarding Travel Camp next week, July 13th - July 17th. This summer camp hits a few of the better parks around Vermont over the course of the week! For more info or to sign up, call the park at (802) 775-7976.
BBQ some burgers or some dogs and enjoy the day off. We'll see you on Sunday!
