Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Dodge Ridge
FreeridingFreeriders who like to experience rough, hard core and fast terrain will like what they find here. There is a good selection of expert runs to take on with the most interesting being the Six Shooter and the Sonora Glades, which is a tricky steep section with heaps of trees. Little more sedate trails to try out are the Sunrise or the Exhibition while the Gentle Ben is even easier.
FreestylersFreestylers have had a halfpipe and terrain park here for years. The Discovery way park is set up for beginners located just off chair 6 while half pipe at Center Bowl off of Chair 5 is 300 foot long. For jibbing head to Rockys road top of chair 7 and if board cross is your thing then Ry’s Run under chair 3 will tickle your fancy. All the hardend freestyles hang out at the Sunrise park off chair 8 where there’s some mean arse hits.
PistesPISTES. Fast riders have a couple of cracking trails to let loose on, namely the Sunrise if you have the balls or the Quicksilver which is a nice long blue trail off lift 8. Fools Gold is another cool fast trail.
BeginnersBeginners will find the best areas to take on are located at the lower sections of lifts 2 and 1. Please note that these are novice areas and although tame, should not be at speed. READ NEXT: Village life, accommodation & nightlife
