The National Ski Areas Association and Burton Snowboards sponsor Smart Style as a cooperative effort to continue the proper use and progression of terrain parks at mountain resorts, while also delivering a unified message that is clear, concise, and effective. Smart Style is designed to help 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.
There are four main messages that are associated with Smart Style:
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
Scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know your landings are clear and clear yourself out of the landing area.
Start small and work your way up. (Inverted aerials not recommended).
From the lift line through the park.
