Drovers Fun Boxes Terrain Park_Hattie Reid 2021

Drovers Fun Boxes (Rated Small)

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 (Rated Small)

The Fox Trail line is a longtime 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!

Skies cleared today at Falls Creek after 130cm+ of snow last week revealing ice caps on Rocky Valley Lake. More snow is tipped at the end of the week making for premium holiday skiing in the Alpine Resorts. Skier Jodan Cook slips a fun box on Falls Creek's Drover Terrain Park today.

Panorama Park (Rated Small - Medium)

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 (Rated Large)

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 (Rated Extra Large)

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.

Terrain Parks 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

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

  • 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.
