Terrain Park Safety
Before you head into one of our 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.
A Summit Parks PEEPs Pass is highly recommended to access all terrain parks at The Summit, including Greenhorn Acres.
Once you've completed the Park Etiquette & Education Program your confirmation will be emailed to you. The PEEPs Pass is valid for the entire season but must be renewed each season.

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.
Start SmallWork your way up.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 PlanMake 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 LookBefore you dropCheck 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.
RespectThe features & other ridersFreestyle 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 EasyKnow your limits. Land on your feetAlways 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.
