In this writer's opinion, Perisher's been on a bit of a simmering rise over the past few seasons. NZ used to be the destination for those heading down South, probably due to the freestyle mecca that was Snowpark NZ, but for a few reasons, it seems the crown has slipped from NZ as of late...

Apart from the unfortunate demise of Snowpark NZ (Pour Out A Little Liquor), one of the issues with NZ is the..errr...inclement weather. The terrain is awesome, but rarely does the weather play ball meaning a lot of riders have turned to resorts like Perisher, Thredbo and Jindabyne for their summer snow fix.

Featuring Aussie natives; Jye Kearney, Joel Cantle, Richie Carroll, Justin Mckay, Raph Louis and Sam Neumann. Early June brought a solid dose of fresh snow to the resort, giving the park crew more than enough to put together an impressive rail line on Front Valley. This is just the start of things to come.

Whilst it was only a two-trick hitter, we were down with Raph's front blunt to regs and 5050 back 3 out. Gotta to appreciate the simple things in life, right? As always, Jye is setting the metal alight. Jesus, that man is good.

Finally and luckily, this doesn't have a Kanye track for the backing, despite the title...
