Wild Ride Terrain Park

Established in 2004 the Wild Ride Terrain Park has been a fantastic addition to Mt Lyford Alpine Resort, which is already described as a natural terrain park. The man made features of the terrain park add a more exciting and challenging aspect to the resort.

The Wild Ride Terrain Park has been set up in its own basin to the right of the Cloudy T-bar.

The park has a lead in through a natural terrain shoot with a snow cornice up to the left perfect for wing over's.

First in the terrain park is a table top for massive air and tricks followed by the rails and fun box.

Terrain Features:

* Table Top/ Kicker

* 3 Rails* 1 C-rail

* 1 Fun Box

* 1 Log Rails (5.6m)

The International Truck Jump

For years the old 1956 International Truck (ex tow truck) has been a focal point of the resort next to the lodge. Used as a source of entertainment by many for jumps and photography.
