The weather turned but that couldn’t stop the spread of good times, and one sweet jam to celebrate the opening of the Perisher Half-pipe for 2018 season. The Half-pipe officially opened for its first day last Sunday the August 5. Perisher decided it was time for a jamming pipe party for the only Half-pipe in Australia! A call to the crew at Volcom to dish out some prizes and on Wednesday August 15 the jam was served up for young and old to enjoy!

Volcom brought the prizes along team riders Norwegian Torgeir Bergrem and Aussie boy, Olympic bronze medalist, Scotty James to show everyone a good time in the pipe.

A big thank you goes out to the riders of the jam, Volcom Australia and of course the Perisher Terrain parks team for getting the pipe in shape for the 2018 winter. 

We’re set to see more action in the Half-pipe when the youngsters take the stage at the Australian Junior Freeride Championships in 2 weeks’ time. We’ll see you then!
