      The OG downhill trails of Christchurch. On the southern face, a maze of expert technical chutes and drops crisscross down to the bottom, while the western flank sports classic intermediate trails like Gum Trees and Sesame Street.

      Trail difficulties are well signposted, however, the trails can be confusing to the first-timer.

      Vic Park can be shuttled or accessed from the Christchurch Adventure Park chairlift via Summit Connection and a small uphill on Summit Road.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
