$10,000 in Terrain Park Upgrades at Perisher Blue!
To further cement Perisher Blue’s reputation as providing the
leading terrain parks in Australia, the resort has committed to pouring
$10,000 into terrain park upgrades for the upcoming 2008 season.
The investment will deliver impressive new features including an
S-box, table box, battleship box and an 8m round bar rail. There may
also be a new 12m down flat down rail. New beginner features will also
be added in the Columbia Fun Park on Mt Piper to provide ultimate
progression for emerging freeriders.
According to Matt Klemm, Grooming Manager for Perisher Blue, “12m of
the longest rail known as the Dragon’s Tail (a 12m dipper rail) may
also make a comeback alongside the popular Ride Wall and the 40ft
Rainbow Rail.” If this jargon sounds incomprehensible, these types of
features can be viewed at www.fusionparks.com.au.
In total, there should be about 50 features across Perisher Blue’s
four terrain parks, which Matt Klemm says, “is impressive even by
Of course, the ability to set these features up as early as possible
is dependent on favorable early season snowfalls. Luckily for
freeriders, the resort’s $9.75M investment on snowmaking that includes
new snowmaking next to the PSP Terrain Park on Front Valley should help
with its construction in 2008.
Coupled with positive long-range weather predictions and the fact
that the resort has already has three significant snowfalls this year,
things are looking promising for Perisher Blue delivering Australia’s
best terrain parks again in 2008.
