Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Perisher


Freeriders should check out the Guthega and Blue Cow areas. There are winding creek beds and some nice little rock drop offs. For powder try out the Burnum, Eyre and Leichhardt runs, thought don't bother in September as it's all gone.


Freestylers have 3 parks for different abilities and a dedicated rail park. They've made big improvements over the last few years, and theres even a snowskate park. The superpipe often play host to  events, running alongside is a beginners pipe. The parks run the full gammet of toys from a boardercross style series of quarter pipes to plastic picnic tables, barrels and rails. 2007 Season saw the addition of five new rails which comprise of four 6-metre rails one each set for the Fusion Parks in Front Valley (PlayStation), Blue Cow (PlayStation), Leichhardt (Garnier) and Mt Piper (Columbia) and an 8-metre down rail earmarked for Front Valley. 


Beginners will find plenty of open easy slopes. However, although there are 50 lifts most of these are T-bars and J-bars which are slow and not very snowboarder friendly.
