Freestyle Terrain is becoming more popular at resorts and proper use is important. The National Ski Areas Association and Burton Snowboards have developed the “Smart Style” Freestyle Terrain Safety initiative, a cooperative effort to continue the proper use and progression of freestyle terrain at mountain resorts, while also delivering a unified message that is clear, concise, and effective.
 
The 4 main points of Smart Style include:
  • 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.
