Welcome to 2016!
While the sun beats down here in Australia this summer, our U.S. resorts have been carefully crafting their Terrain Parks for you to enjoy with your Epic Benefits!
Olympic Gold Medalist Sage Kotsenburg has been cruising in the recently opened Neff Land Terrain Park at Park City, Keystone's A51 Terrain Park is now open and ready for shredding, while Breckenridge hosted the Dew Tour with their awesome pipe and parks.
We're hoping to see a few "I Ride Park City" stickers taking up some prime real estate on skis and boards next year!
Back here on home soil, Perisher has again claimed the top spot, winning the SIA ‘Best Terrain Park at a Resort’ award for 2015. Winning this award for the third year running really demonstrates that Perisher’s PlayStation Terrain Park is the best Southern Hemisphere destination for the best skiers and boarders in the world to come and train in their off season..
Some of the names that were seen cruising around Perisher during the 2015 season include Joss Christensen (Ski Slopestyle Gold medalist), Sage Kotsenburg, Eric Willet, Oystein Braaten, Mark McMorris, Torstein Horgmo, Tom Wallisch, Stale Sandbech, Seb Toots, Bobby Brown, Jamie Anderson (Women’s Slopestyle Gold medalist), Jess Rich, Australia’s own Olympians Nate Johnstone, Scotty James and Russ Henshaw.
It’s thanks to Perisher’s Terrain Park team, who dedicate themselves to creating such innovative features and designs, which brings the big names to Perisher. Terrain Park Manager, Charles Beckinsale, who is internationally renowned for his innovative park designs and riding success, managed Perisher parks this season.
We hope everyone enjoys their Northern Hemisphere winter and we look forward to shredding with everyone again next year!
