A rare fullpipe park

Despite the name, Mogul Bowl wasn't really a mogul-style park.  It was instead an impressive second-gen style park with a huge variety in terrain. In all likelihood, the name was inspired by co-owner Jack Pieroni, who was a professional skier and owned "Pieroni Ski and Sports" ski shop.

The park was the first in Fresno and cost approximately $200,000 to build.

It had 9 main features, the most striking of which was the 20 foot diameter fullpipe.  The other features included a 120 foot snake run, 110 foot halfpipe, Slalom run, Cloverleaf bowl and beginner bowl, a tile and coping pool, and freestyle area.

Yes, I was a regular, card-carrying member. I had a Sims Lonnie Toft with mid-tracks and green Kryptonics, then got on an Eric Tsuda skatedeck that I loved. That had Indys and the Kryptonics. I ended up blowing out both my kneecaps doing a frontside grind in the red pool there. There was the full pipe, and another pool that had a huge kink in it, a snake run that was pretty crazy with a big quarter pipe at the end. The reservoir was great, super basic L-shaped three level thing that was great for big flowy lines. Best hangout spot ever in Fresno. I think the top half of the fullpipe was rescued and turned into a halfpipe out at a guy's place outside of Fresno [I forget where].
