The Features vary in size and difficulty and change constantly due to snow conditions, weather, usage, modifications, grooming and time of day. It is your responsibility to inspect these features before use and throughout the day. You control the degree of risk you will encounter in using these features both on the ground and in the air. Do not attempt these features unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely.
Only one person should use a feature at a time. Wait your turn and call your start. Do not jump blindly and use a spotter when necessary. LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP!! Always clear the landing area quickly.
Individual features are closed for a reason. Do not enter the Freestyle Terrain or use features when closed.
The Smart Style Program
Make a Plan - Every time you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and take off will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
Look Before you Leap - Scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know landings are clean and clear yourself out of the landing area.
Easy Style It - Start small and work your way up (inverted aerials are not recommended).
Respect Gets Respect - From the lift through the park.

Terrain Park Etiquette For Snowboarding Learning to ride freestyle in the terrain park is one of the most rewarding feelings when snowboarding. Unfortunately, we see way to many people getting hurt. Almost 99% of the time the collisions and injuries are totally preventable. Proper terrain park safety is so important when entering any freestyle area to keep you and everyone around you safe. It's unfortunate that many shredders (kids in particular) learning freestyle think that it's "cool" to not wear a helmet and break the rules in the park. Unfortunately, when these kids have an accident and learn they're mistake, it's already to late. Please share this video with your fellow shredders so we can finally have a safer environment in terrain parks everywhere.
Terrain Park Etiquette & Safety Tips In this video I've got 5 tips to help keep you safe in the terrain park. The first tip is to always call your drop in. Whether you are hitting a jump, rail or half pipe, it's always important to let everyone around you know that you're dropping next. The second tip is to keep the landings clear below the features. If you want to sit down in the terrain park make sure it's off to the side and people snowboarding above can see you. The third tip is to never use the lip of a rail as a jump. If you want to practice your jumps you can use the knuckle of the jump or natural rollers. The fourth safety tip is to avoid the busiest times in the terrain park. If you're new the terrain park the busiest times can be intimidating. The final tip is to take a look at all the features in the terrain park first.
