Freestyle Terrain Safety
Freestyle Terrain Areas
Freestyle terrain areas are designated with an orange oval and 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. Use of freestyle terrain exposes you to the risk of serious injury or death. Inverted aerials are not recommended. You assume the risk.
Freestyle terrain has designations for relative size at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Each feature can be broken down into four zones. Identify these zones and have a plan before using any freestyle terrain, and keep the following safety tips in mind:
1. Make a plan. Every time you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and takeoff will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
2. Look before you leap. Always scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know your landings are clear, and clear yourself out of the landing area.
3. Easy style it. Start small and work your way up. (Inverted aerials are not recommended).
4. Respect gets respect. Show everyone respect from the lift line through the park.
