Progressive resorts around the world have taken a serious look at freestyle terrain and what that means because it’s in their best interest to keep you safe and riding well. Here are some of the steps you can expect at these resorts:
- Current freestyle park information posted throughout the resort
- Smart staff who understand parks and the customers coming to them
- Quality lessons offered to the visitors that will help them understand park etiquette.
- Your “Responsibility Code”, a staff who knows the code and respects what it represents
- Resort employees who know the park well
- Key opinion leaders in the park scene
- Website, collateral materials and snow reports
- Stickers and cards for handouts
- Chairlift tower signs
- Big trail map signs and slope signage
If you are a little one venturing into the park, it’s important to ride with people who understand the park. Discourage your little ones from venturing in there unless they are proficient enough for the level park they are entering. There are many mountains that offer entry level parks.
