The Outback area features long intermediate and black diamond runs with plenty of bumps and secret stashes of powder. Plenty of bumps and long runs can also be found at North Peak mixed with harder blue runs and black diamonds as well. For those who like a little less speed or are just learning, Dercum Mountain has long and short green and blue runs. The A51 Terrain Park is one of the best you can find with all the jumps and pipes you could want. There is even a dedicated lift for the terrain park.
