Australia’s First Indoor Dry Slope Terrain Park

May 2, 2014 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Australia’s first permanent indoor Terrain Park, Powderpak Park PPP, will open Thursday 15 May and will be an exciting innovation in the Australian snow industry. 

A Terrain Park is the same concept as a skateboarding park but is based on snow for snowboarders and skiers.  The indoor Terrain Park will utilise a Powderpak surface allowing year round use.

Powderpak Park“We’re very excited to be introducing Australia’s first indoor Terrain Park with permanent features for boarders & skiers to ride all year round.” says Nick Fergus, Managing Director Powderpak “It provides riders the ability to be on their boards every week practicing new tricks and perfecting their style”.

Powderpak is a soft artificial snow surface utilised by all Australian snow resorts.  The surface is snow-like which allows skiers and boarders to ski down a slope.  The indoor slope features ramps, jumps and boxes that the riders can perform tricks, the same as if they were at a snow resort – similar to skate parks with ramps and boxes.

It’s perfect for beginners and early learners to get professional coaching in preparation for the real thing at the snow resorts.  “Beginners will gain a certain level of competency and will get better value from their lift tickets and equipment hire by the time they get to the resorts” says Fergus.  Burton have specially designed learner snowboards available for hire at the Park and professional tuition is available.

“It’s an inexpensive way to get started and to build your skills fast.  Once you get to the snow all the learning has been done” says Fergus “And for experienced riders, there’s the opportunity to practice new tricks and perfect their style on a year round basis”.

“We see the Powderpak Park as complementing existing offerings at the snow resorts where riders can practice their tricks before hitting the mountains” says Fergus “The PPP will inspire continued interest in the resorts and provide an additional avenue for new riders to be introduced to the sport and the resorts”.

What a great way to spend your time, learning a new sport, staying fit and having fun.

The park will be open every week with dedicated sessions on specific days.  Bookings are essential to ensure you get on the slope.
