Steamboat Ski Resort
Being ParkWise in Steamboat means understanding and abiding by some simple rules of the park called SmartStyle.
- Make a Plan - Every time you use freestyle terrain make a plan for each feature you use. Your speed, approach and take-off will directly affect your maneuver and landing
- Look Before You Leap - Before getting into freestyle terrain observe all signage and warnings
- Use your first run as a warm-up run and to familiarize yourself with the park layout and features
- ATML: When first inspecting the jumps consider the following elements of each jump:
(A) The approach zone is for setting your speed and stance
(T) The Take-off zone is for making moves that start your trick
(M) The Maneuver zone is for controlling your style
(L) The Landing Zone is for getting straight and riding away clean.
- Remember that the features change constantly due to weather, usage and time of day so it is important to continue to inspect features throughout the day.
- Easy Style It - Know your limits and ride within your ability
- When starting out, look for small progression parks and features and then work your way up to medium or largeparks and features. Freestyle Terrain comes in different sizes so make sure and start small and work your way up before going into larger parks.
- Stay in control both on the ground and in the air.
- Remember you can control how big or small you take the feature by varying speed and take off.
- Inverted aerials increase the chance of serious injury and are not recommended.
- Respect Gets Respect - Respect the terrain and all others
- One person on a feature at a time.
- Wait your turn and call your drop-in.
- Always clear the landing area quickly.
- Respect all signs and stay off closed features.
- Remember that respect is important both in the park, and on the rest of the resort. So be smart when you are heading down the mountain or to the lift and save your best tricks for the park.
- YOU ARE IN CONTROL
Don’t get in the backseat
Control your speed
Land on your feet
YOU ARE IN CONTROL…
