Park award win for Perisher
PERISHER has again claimed the top spot, winning the Snowsports Industries of Australia (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 at in their off season.
Some of the names that were seen cruising around Perisher during the 2015 season include Joss Christensen (Ski Slopestyle Gold medallist), Sage Kotsenburg, Eric Willet, Oystein Braaten, Mark McMorris, Torstein Horgmo, Tom Wallisch, Stale Sandbech, Seb Toots, Bobby Brown, Jamie Anderson (Women’s Slopestyle Gold medallist), 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, manages Perisher’s parks.
“We’re really proud of the past season where we tried a heap of new things and really pushed the boundaries,” Charles said.
Perisher CEO Peter Brulisauer said that due to the great work the terrain park team does, it was no wonder that the facility is truly world-class.
Perisher will again host some of the best Slopestyle events this winter, including the Subaru Australian Junior Freeride Championships to be held in August.
