Hockenstein said that most riders have no idea how unique it is to have a free, underground place to skate.

“There’s no place in the world that has this, an underground skatepark that doesn’t cost you a dime,” he said. “There’s nothing else to do in Whistler when it’s raining. You can sit on your couch, and you can drink, and that’s about it. This is something that’s fun, it’s free, and it can be really positive.”
