Highlights from the winter of 2010 at Falls Creek Australia.

Falls Creek, despite the lack of snow at the start of the winter still managed to have wombats open from day one till the end. We did have a record 70cm in two days as well as a double line of 50s and the signature ‘Jason Currie’ wallride in Ruined Castle open till the end. Also the Drovers park in full swing. The season also provided a number of snowfalls to film a bunch of urban jibbing throughout the resort.

Edit has a number of backing tracks.

Featuring the local snowboarding talent of Tom Clairs, Scott Wight, Alec Summers, Zac Mattschoss, Jason Currie, Daniel Currie, Jeremy Burns, Jeremy Richardson, Matto Smith, Reuben Cameron, Kieran McLaughlin, Tim Butler, Andrew Thomson, also with a skateboarders John Juric and Robert Campiciano.

A Day at Falls Creek with new Aussie talent Joel Fraser and Shaun Ingham.

First of many Third Chapter PEEPSHOW’S by Stu Ross.



It’s been a busy couple of weeks with World Rookie Fest, copious amounts of new snow and a few rebuilds of the park. This episode we’ve got some snowdancing from Ryan Tiene and Jai aswell as the usual suspects riding the parks.

With a refurbished Cruiser Beginner Park the mini shredding has been very popular. Charles spent a 16 hour day in the cat to build one of the funnest lil beginner parks we’ve had. In it there are 6 small jumps ranging from 5 – 15 feet a mini step up and a range of beginner jibs.

In High Noon we have the 30 stair handrail set up that is new for 2010 along with a 30ft and 40ft jump, 6m down box, down/flat/down rail, a new transfer hip, 6m candy cane rail and the hitching post set up pretty high.

Monster Airbag is still up and running and we’re getting prepped up for the Rip Curl Freeride and Throwdown competitions.

So get up here for a shred.
