Safety and Etiquette
Using common sense and being aware can help reduce the risks inherent with any sport. Specialized equipment such as helmets and wrist guards may help to reduce the incidence or severity of injury.
Cutting in line is not acceptable, even if the folks ahead are slow. Foul and obscene language is not acceptable as this is an all ages area. Please be courteous, don't smoke in line. Don't ski or ride fast in designated SLOW areas.
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 Does It
Start small and work your way up. (Inverted aerials not recommended).
Respect Gets Respect

Your Responsibility Code
