Cable Parks 2010: Boarder Pass

Sarnia, Ontario, Canada



The first straight-line cable park in Ontario, Canada, Boarder Pass is tucked away in a small bay on Lake Huron — well-protected from the wind, which makes for calm waters all day, every day. Partnered with Sarnia Bay Marina, Boarder Pass is located near two major cities — Toronto (two and a half hours away) and Detroit (one hour away). With numerous obstacles and a great two-tower Sesitec System 2.0 setup, Boarder Pass is sure to attract riders from both sides of the border. Once you’ve had your fill of riding, there’s plenty to do, including gambling at a nearby casino. Or, if you just can’t get enough time on the water, you can always get a pull from Sarnia Water Sports.
