Your Responsibility Know The Code
Skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas, you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled or other skiers. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce injury.

Smart Style Terrain Park Safety
We believe the “Smart Style” message along with existing safety messages will help to heighten the sense of education and awareness about the proper use of terrain parks in a way that is not hard to deliver, or for that matter to digest.
The more people we can educate and get involved to help to spread the knowledge, the better!
The Smart Style Program:
There are four main messages that are associated with Smart Style:
- Make a Plan. Every time you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and take off will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
- Look Before You Leap. Scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know your landings are clear and clear yourself out of the landing area.
- Easy Style It. Start small and work your way up. (Inverted aerials not recommended).
- Respect Gets Respect. From the lift line through the park.

Tips For While On The Slopes
Take a lesson
Like anything, you’ll improve the most when you receive some guidance. The best way to become a good skier or snowboarder is to take a lesson from a qualified instructor.
The key to successful skiing/snowboarding is control
To have it, you must be aware of your stance, technique, the terrain and the skiers/snowboarders around you. Be aware of the snow conditions and how they can change. As conditions turn firm, the skiing gets hard and fast. Begin a run slowly.
Drink plenty of water
Be careful not to become dehydrated.
Know your limits
You’ve arrived. You’re geared up and have a lift ticket. Now what? Go get a trail map at the base lodge or lift-ticket window. Take a few minutes to check it out. The lifts and the trails are marked on the map. The colored symbols next to the trails are the keys to enjoying your first few days on the slopes. Their shape and color indicate the difficulty of the trail.
