ZOO YORK PITCHES IN TO OPEN PRIVATE INDOOR SKATE SPOT IN BROOKLYN — MT. WEATHER
New York, NY — April 2, 2007 — For the third year in a row, NYC’s tight-knit skateboarding community has banded together to open a private indoor training facility. Located next to the Autumn Bowl in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the aptly named Mt. Weather is now open for shredding, and its purpose is simple; to provide a dry, heated indoor spot to keep NYC’s skateboarding scene alive when rotten East Coast weather strikes.
Mt. Weather was made possible through generous support from Zoo York, Red Bull, Volcom, and 5boro Skateboards. This much needed TF features a streamlined street course, and it’s easily accessible from Manhattan.
Like past years, Mt. Weather is being run as a co-op where, in addition to the aforementioned sponsors, individual key holders contributed money to help cover rent, ramp materials, and other expenses. In return, key holders enjoy round-the-clock access to Mt. Weather. Therefore, to skate this coveted spot you either need your own key or a friend with a key. That’s it, that’s the only way in. So start pulling favors now before it’s too late… Mt. Weather will remain open through the middle of May.
