Madras – Flows like Basalt

Madras Skate Park

Basalt flows and so does the Madras skate park in Madras, Oregon. This is another Dreamland gem and it’s well worth a visit when you are in the area. Check out the pics after the turn and thanks to Shawn and MC for being our skate park models. Striking a pose – EPM Out!

  • looks rad. thanks for the heads up Rich.

  • Worth a stop if you’re headed through there.

  • Good shots. Crisp!

  • Underrated park. The deep bowl is a great “Idaho” shape. Lines for days. If it were closer to Portland we’d be there more frequently.

    I used to make a weekend run each spring to Redmond on Saturday, camp in the Mt. Bachelor parking lot Saturday night, snowbro Bachelor on Sunday and back to Portland that night. Now I bag Redmond for Madras.

  • Madras is a super cool park. I go down there all the time because I have some family down there but I have only skated there once. I am acctualy headed down there on saturday but its supposed to be raining and/or snowing. That big bowl is fast and fun though.
