Know & Manage The Risks
As with many adventure sports, skiing and snowboarding in the Advanced Terrain Park involves the risk of injury, including serious injury, head injury, paralysis, or death. The risk of injury increases with the size and degree of difficulty of the feature and terrain and the participant’s launch speed and complexity of trick or airborne/aerial maneuver. Although the risk of injury can never be eliminated, the participant can manage the risk by:
(i) choosing features and terrain, and only attempting tricks or airborne/aerial maneuvers, appropriate to the participant’s skill and experience;
(ii) progressing slowly and methodically; and
Practice Park Etiquette
- Keep landings and knuckles clear. Clear the landing to avoid collisions. Do not stop or sit in a landing, knuckle, bottom of roller, or anywhere that you are not visible to skiers/riders upfill from you. If you need to stop or take a break make sure you are visible and can be seen from above.
- Do not ski/ride through landings. When not using features, stay off to the side of the trail, out of the way.
- Use features in the manner in which they are intended. Don’t jump off the sides of the takeoffs. Save the takeoff lips for people who want to ride the feature correctly. Practice riding on small jumps or rollers instead.
- Do not “snake” other skiers/riders. Be courteous of your fellow park skiers/riders and call your drops. Give people a decent amount of time and space when waiting to ski/ride a feature to avoid cutting other people off.
- Slow down when exiting the terrain park.
