Terrain Parks

Falls Creek's is one of Australia's top destinations for freeride, freestyle & slopestyle skiing and snowboarding

Our park crew take  pride in creating some of the best terrain parks in Australia. They work hard to ensure our parks are designed with progression in mind to cater to everyone's varying levels of ability and confidence.

As such Falls Creek offers a park or line for everyone, from beginners through to the elite pro.

  • For those starting out or the emerging park shredder who wants to practice their skill, the easy and intermediate lines of the Panorama Park feature kickers, boxes and rails to suit.
  • For the next step up, head to Ruined Castle for the advanced and extreme lines with larger booters, rails and features. It also includes the pro line used by the world's best in the Falls Freestyle Series.

Park Rating System

The Falls Creek Freestyle Terrain Park Rating System has been developed to help all of our guests with Park Safety. This system uses clear graphic signs to grade the various aspects of the Park & Pipe features. It is very important that you familiarise yourself with these symbols and all other signage and take time to understand them before riding any of the Terrain Parks.

Falls Creek's main features and terrain parks are graded below using this system.

Falls Creek Terrain Park Rating System

Drovers Fun Boxes - Rating S

As soon as the snow starts to accumulate the Park Crew get to work in creating some fun features for the eager jibbers hitting the slopes. The slope just below the Drovers Chairlift unload is often the first place to see some action with a series of small rails and funboxes set up to tide the riders over until snow levels reach the right depth to get the bigger parks up and running.

Fox Trail - Rating S

The Fox Trail line is a long time favourite for little rippers and is just perfect for kids learning to ski and snowboard. Fox Trail’s naturally forming rollercoasters, berms and jumps have been further enhanced to create the ultimate terrain playground for kids.

Mini igloos and other colourful interactive snow features add to the fun! Watch out for Pete the Snow Dragon as he cruises the resort this season… Fox Trail is his favourite run!

Panorama Park - Rating S-M

Formerly known as the Drovers Park, Panorama is the perfect place to learn park riding and progress your skills on a large range of small and medium sized features.

As the name implies, the park has a fantastic panorama view over Rocky Valley Lake (making for some awesome pics). It's also located not far from Cloud 9 and the Halley's Comet unload. Panorama features both introductory and intermediate lines but riders can pick and choose what to hit along the way.

Castle Terrain Park - Rating L

The Ruined Castle Park is a definite step up to your riding. Head to skier's right of the Ruined Castle chair for the advanced park line with mid to large jumps and more difficult features.

Long flow lines of hits and narrow rails cater to the most discerning freerider against a killer soundtrack through the park's own stereo system.

Castle Terrain Park Expert Line - Rating XL

The big daddy of terrain parks, the expert line on skier's left of the Ruined Castle Park takes riders through seriously massive hits, long rails and big gaps. Park favourites include the massive Rainbow Rail and giant booters.

This is the site of Falls Creek's Storm the Castle and sees some truly enormous features incorporated into its setup.

Park Terms & Conditions

Keep It Classy

Whether at the Park or at the dinner table - bad manners are bad manners. To make sure everybody using the park has a good time it's important that riders exercise appropriate park etiquette. Ride like a fool and you're bound to upset other riders.

The Freestyle Terrain Snow Park Etiquette provides basic information to all users entering and/or using terrain park facilities. This contains important safety points on how everyone conducts themselves when in the Terrain Park area.

For your own safety and enjoyment and the safety and enjoyment of other Park users, follow the park etiquette outlined below:

  • Read & follow all park signs & warnings
  • Use features suitable to your ability & skill level
  • Start out with the smaller features and work your way up
  • Inspect the features before jumping
  • When inspecting or instructing in the park, be sure that you are out of the way of other users
  • Don't stop on the tops of jumps
  • Move off the landing zones of the jumps quickly
  • Use others as spotters if the landing zone is not visible from above
  • Use visual signs (eg: crossed arms above head - NOT CLEAR & one arm wave - CLEAR)
  • Call for priority when waiting for your turn to use a feature (eg: "NEXT", "ON DECK" or DROPPING IN")
  • Speed judgment is important to landing in the "sweet spot" on a jump. Watch others, get advice or take lessons.

Alpine Responsibility Code

Remember, it is always your responsibility to ride or ski within your limits. Don't end your season early by trying tricks or features that are beyond your ability. The Alpine Responsibility Code outlines the 'rules of the road' for the slopes. You are accountable for your actions and violations. Play smart and safe

  • Know your ability and always stay in control and be able to stop and avoid other people or objects. It is your responsibility to stay in control on the ground and in the air.
  • Take lessons from qualified professional instructors, to learn and progress.
  • As you proceed downhill or overtake another person, you must avoid the people below and beside you.
  • Do not stop where you obstruct a trail or run, or are not visible from above.
  • When entering a trail or run or starting downhill, look uphill and give way to others.
  • When riding a chairlifts use the restraining devices. Always use suitable restraints to prevent runaway skiing/boarding equipment. Ensure your equipment is in good condition.
  • Observe and obey all signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails or runs and out of closed areas.
  • Before using any lift you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
  • Do not ski, snowboard, ride a lift or undertake any other alpine activity if your ability is impaired by drugs or alcohol.
  • If you are involved in, or witness an accident, alert Ski Patrol, remain at the scene and identify yourself to the Ski Patrol.
