As 2015 draws to a close, the team at PPP Carrum Downs wants to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who's made an appearance and shredded their heart out at the park! Its been one hell of a...
Who we are?PowderPak Parks is owned and run by a bunch of snow-mad boarders hoping to share our passion for snowboarding and skiing with you. We’re all just a bunch of steezy guys and gals who love to keep the stoke. Our shared love for boarding and skiing, and laid back attitude makes for a pretty sweet team. The PPP family is constantly growing, and like every family we’re a little crazy, but that just makes it all the more fun! Our aim is to make everyone that steps through the doors of PPP feel like part of our growing family of shredders. We just want everyone to keep the stoke!
What we do?
Well, for starters, PPP is Australia’s first artificial snow surface indoor terrain park with permanent features for boarders and skiers to ride all year round (which is pretty cool). This means that riders can practice tricks and perfect their riding style without the need for actual snow! The Powderpak itself is a soft artificial snow surface, utilised by all Australian snow resorts! It’s the closest to the real thing you can get, and it’s packed with heaps of cool features where riders can perform and perfect tricks, just the same as if they were at a snow resort!
Powderpak isn’t just for experienced riders though, it’s perfect for those new to riding too! It gives beginners the opportunity to learn and progress so that they can make the most out of the real thing when they hit the resorts! Beginners will gain a level of competency and confidence on our fake snow that will ensure they get the most out of their time on the actual snow! PPP provides professional tuition for beginners, and they can even hire boards that Burton have specifically designed for learners.
Whether you’re new to snow sports or you’re a jedi of boarding and/or skiing, PPP is the perfect place to ride and progress in a non-competitive and chilled out area, all year round.
Where it all started?The original PPP was a small setup in the family backyard of businessman and steezy shredder, Nick Fergus. With a small Powderpak slope and a box to slide on, the backyard Powderpak setup quickly became a hit amongst the local shred-lords. One thing led to another and next thing we knew, we had a pop-up park in Dandenong (which everyone loved)! Now, PPP is growing into its boots (pun intended) with parks in Geelong in Victoria, Fyshwick Canberra in the ACT, and Queenstown in New Zealand.
What’s next for PPP?PPP is still growing, and we don’t plan on stopping! Our aim is to encourage people across the world keep the stoke. We want to spread the word that snowboarding and skiing is no longer a sport exclusive to the snow and just about anyone can do it without robbing their bank accounts! Every day a new PPP opens is a day we can make snow sports more accessible, making that day a day we make people happy. We’re happy when we’re making you happy (we know that’s corny, but it’s true). We hope you can join the PPP evolution, we’d love to have you part of it!
