Terrain Park Safety

LEARN ABOUT RIDING FREESTYLE TERRAIN

Before you head into one of our five terrain parks, get shred-ucated! It all starts with being Park SMART, taking the Park Etiquette and Education Program (PEEPs) online, getting your PEEPs Pass, then hitting our parks with safety and fun at the top of your mind.

Summit Parks

PEEPs Pass

A Summit Parks PEEPs Pass is required to access all terrain parks at The Summit, except for Greenhorn Acres. However, we do recommend a PEEPs Pass when accessing Greenhorn Acres.

Once you've completed the Park Etiquette & Education Program you are eligible to purchase a PEEPS Pass. The PEEPs Pass is valid for the entire season of purchase, but must be renewed each season.

Park Etiquette & Education Program Online

At the end of the program you will receive a free temporary park pass/ticket for that day only. You will need to fill out a liability release and pay a $5 fee at Summit Central or Summit West guest services to receive your season long PEEPs Pass. If you are under 18 you will also need a parent's signature on the release before you can get either the temporary pass or the PEEPs Pass.

Freestyle Terrain Safety

Important! PRIOR to using freestyle terrain, you are responsible for familiarizing yourself with freestyle terrain and obeying all instructions, warnings and signs. Freestyle terrain may contain jumps, hits, ramps, banks, boxes, jibs, rails, halfpipes, quarterpipes, snowcross, bump terrain and other constructed or natural terrain features.

Park SMART is your simple and effective guide to having a fun and safe experience in our terrain parks. Riding freestyle terrain is suppose to be a good time, but just like if you french fry when you're suppose to pizza, if you aren't Park SMART when you should be... You're gonna have a bad time. When you're out on the hill, watch for the orange oval as it designates freestyle terrain.

Park SMART

  • Start Small
    Look for small progression features to begin with and work your way up while building your skills. Feature designations are relative to this resort. Watch for the orange pill symbol with the XS or S designator. Greenhorn Acres contains XS & S features and is a great place to start.
  • Make A Plan
    Make a plan for each feature and the entire park. Your speed, approach and take-off will directly affect your maneuver and landing. Know the lines and safe stopping zones.
  • Always Look
    Check around all jumps/jibs before using them and use your first run as a warm up run to familiarize yourself with the park. Be aware that features change constantly due to weather, usage, grooming and time of day. Don't hit a feature blind, use a spotter if necessary.
  • Respect
    Freestyle terrain is for everyone regardless of equipment or ability. Wait your turn, call your drop, clear the landing quickly, and never have more than one rider on a feature at a time. Respect all signs and closures, never use a closed feature.
  • Take It Easy
    Always ski/ride within your ability level and do not attempt any features unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely. Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground and in the air.
