    Hey guys,

    heading down to falls in just under 2 weeks. What are the runs that you recommend for a snowboarder? from the maps the maze area looks pretty decent but i am going there with pretty much no knowledge of the mountain so any help will be awesome

    What level are you at?

    Which resorts have you ridden in the past and what runs are your standard there?

    What type of riding do you like? Big hits, parks, free riding etc?

    No point recommending something if it is way different from your standard or preference.

    Sorry should have mentioned that, id rate myself fairly decent, no run i wont give a shot, usually ride perisher/thredbo, hotham the last 2 years but the snow was pathetic, and also done nz south island. I dont mind the parks but love to get in amongst the trees thats why im thinking the maze area

    If you like trees then you cant go past the maze, also the Ys are not a bad option but tend to get a bit moguly after a bit of use.

    Also there is a nice patch of trees between falls creek express (the chair formerly know as haileys comet or billia bullet) and wombat's ramble.

    Otherwise stick to the summit or ruined castle no trees but fun none the less.
