$10,000 in Terrain Park Upgrades at Perisher Blue!8 May 2008 To further cement Perisher Blue’s reputation as providing the leading terrain parks in Australia, the resort has committed to pouring $10,000 into terrain park upgrades for the upcoming 2008 season.The investment will deliver impressive new features including an S-box, table box, battleship box and an 8m round bar rail. There may also be a new 12m down flat down rail. New beginner features will also be added in the Columbia Fun Park on Mt Piper to provide ultimate progression for emerging freeriders.According to Matt Klemm, Grooming Manager for Perisher Blue, “12m of the longest rail known as the Dragon’s Tail (a 12m dipper rail) may also make a comeback alongside the popular Ride Wall and the 40ft Rainbow Rail.” If this jargon sounds incomprehensible, these types of features can be viewed at http://www.fusionparks.com.au. In total, there should be about 50 features across Perisher Blue’s four terrain parks, which Matt Klemm says, “is impressive even by overseas standards."Of course, the ability to set these features up as early as possible is dependent on favorable early season snowfalls. Luckily for freeriders, the resort’s $9.75M investment on snowmaking that includes new snowmaking next to the PSP Terrain Park on Front Valley should help with its construction in 2008.Coupled with positive long-range weather predictions and the fact that the resort has already has three significant snowfalls this year, things are looking promising for Perisher Blue delivering Australia’s best terrain parks again in 2008.Regular terrain park and pipe updates and information is posted on the Fusion Parks and Pipe Facebook page.
