There are dozens of terrain parks across Colorado Ski Country to enjoy. Before going into a terrain park, guests should review SMART style, a terrain park safety initiative that highlights key safety tips that you should know before entering a terrain park.

HERE ARE THE FIVE POINTS OF SMART STYLE:

Start Small – Your eyes may be bigger than your skill level so start small and build your way up.

Make a Plan – There are multiple features and multiple routes to take in a terrain park. Know your plan. 

Always look – Before you drop-in, always look to see if anyone is in your path.

Respect – Respect the features and respect others using them. Simple as that.

Take it Easy – You always want to land on your feet so take it easy and know your limits.

 

Terrain parks are common at most ski areas. A terrain park is a designated area with man-made features such as jumps, rails and boxes to slide across, and halfpipes similar to those used in skateboarding. Some resorts feature more than one terrain park, and they can range in size from small, medium, and large. Visit ski area websites to learn more about their terrain and terrain parks. The best way to learn how to safely navigate the various features is to take a lesson from a professional instructor.
