Our Park crew know plenty of skiers and boarders would love to ride in the park but may not know how to start out. That’s why our parks are designed with progression in mind to cater to everyon'es varying levels of ability and confidence. For those starting out the easy and intermediate lines of the Panorama Park feature kickers, boxes and rails to suit the absolute beginner through to the emerging park shredder. For the next step up, head to Ruined Castle for the Advanced and Extreme lines with larger booters, rails and features and the pro line used by the world's best in the Stylewars Slopestyle Championships.
Taking care of yourself and other riders is paramount when using the terrain parks. Falls Creek has therefore introduced the Parks Rating System and Etiquette code to make sure you are in check with your capabilities and looking out for others.
Just like on the slopes, there are general rules of conduct and etiquette that all park riders should be aware of and pay attention to. We are not here to cramp your style, but if you are acting like a fool in the park then you are likely cramping somebody else's. Learn the code and look out for your fellow rider.
Falls Creek personally greets all media visiting the area and will assist media staff who are on assignment. To ensure your visit is both efficient and successful we require notification in writing to mailto:[email protected] ?subject=Terrain%20Park%20Media%20Requestat least 48 hours prior to arrival explaining the purpose of your visit, your media affiliation, date of arrival and estimated time spent with us. Upon arrival we will also require a letter on company letterhead as well as a copy of the publication.
If you've never been in the terrain park before but would like to give it a try, Freestyle Fridays are for you. Every Friday Falls Creek's Snowsports School instructors are on hand to offer free tips and instruction in the Panorama Terrain Park (on skier's left of Drover's Dream). Find out the right way to hit your first-ever feature, do a few laps and come back every Friday to keep improving. You can then head to the Freestyle Fridays Rail Jam at the base of the Summit for weekly giveaways, beats and a free BBQ.
Storm the Castle was contested for the first time in 2014 and returns in August 2015. Formerly the Falls Creek Big Air Comp, the event features a modified format to include Slopestyle utilising the array of world-class terrain park features that Falls Creek's park riding has become well known for.
