Terrain Parks Safety

Play it safe when you use the park and pipe. Because nothing ruins a great day on the mountain like an injury. Read up. GET SMART

Smart Style is a terrain park safety initiative, which you need to understand in order to use terrain parks safely. The orange oval is a symbol, which identifies freestyle terrain on the hill.

Freestyle terrain may contain jumps, hits, ramps, banks, fun boxes, jibs, rails, half pipes, quarter pipes, snowcross, bump terrain and other constructed or natural terrain features. PRIOR to using Freestyle Terrain, you are responsible for familiarizing yourself with Freestyle Terrain and obeying all instructions, warnings and signs.Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground, and in the air.
