Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Mount Hotham
Some of the best freeride trails can be found off the Heavenly Valley chair lift which will give you access to some short but steep blacks that although may not take too long to do, they will however, test you to the limits. Over the last few years the resort has expanded its terrain cover which now includes some double diamond runs that are seriously steep and not for wimps. They are reached by the Gotcha chair lift which also takes you over to some nice blue out back trails.
Freestylers who like fly high off natural hits will find loads of cool drop offs and lots of natural lips to gain air from. There is also a cool halfpipe and okay terrain park to check out.
Boarders will love this place as it will suite your style of riding with twisting fast trails that take you over the whole area.
Total Beginners only have a couple of green trails which are located right up at the top of the Summit chair, however quick learners will soon be able to tackle the array of blue trails with some of the most interesting to be found off the Village quad chair lift.READ NEXT: Village life, accommodation & nightlife
