MAKE A PLAN
o Every time you use Freestyle Terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use.
o Your speed, approach and takeoff will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP
o Before getting into freestyle terrain observe all signage and warnings
o Scope around the jumps first not over them
o Use your first run as a warm up run and to familiarize yourself with the terrain
o Be aware that the features change constantly due to weather, usage, grooming and time of day
o Do not jump blindly and use a spotter when necessary
EASY STYLE IT
o Know your limits and ski/ride within your ability level
o Look for small progression parks or features to begin with and work your way up
o Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground and in the air
o Do not attempt any features unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely
o Inverted aerials increase your risk of injury and are not recommended
RESPECT GETS RESPECT
o Respect the terrain and others
o One person on a feature at a time
o Wait your turn and call your start
o Always clear the landing area quickly
o Respect all signs and stay off closed terrain and features
