The Skaters Coalition for Concrete, in conjunction with the Friends of the Upper San Juan, held its ninth annual Skate Park Competition and Fundraiser on July 11 at Yamaguchi Skate Park.

Spectators and contestants from the Four Corners enjoyed a perfect Pagosa Saturday in support of efforts to raise funds for Phase II of the skate park expansion, which will include an intermediate bowl.

The upgrades to the skate park will pave the way for increased tourism while providing opportunities for beginner and intermediate skaters to advance and more diverse features for progressive skaters.
