Smart Style

FOUR MAIN PARTS OF SMART STYLE




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

  • Before getting into freestyle terrain observe all signage and warnings
  • Scope around the jumps first not over them
  • Use your first run as a warm up run and to familiarize yourself with the terrain
  • Be aware that the features change constantly due to weather, usage, grooming and time of day
  • Do not jump blindly and use a spotter when necessary

Easy Style It

  • Know your limits and ski/ride within your ability level
  • Look for small progression parks or features to begin with and work your way up
  • Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground and in the air
  • Do not attempt any features unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely
  • Inverted aerials increase your risk of injury and are not recommended

Respect Gets Respect

  • Respect the terrain and others (freestyle terrain is for everyone regardless of equipment or ability)
  • One person on a feature at a time
  • Wait your turn and call your start
  • Always clear the landing area quickly
  • Respect all signs and stay off closed terrain and features
Be sure you Know the Code: Your Responsibility Code provides safety tips while on the slopes. Smart Style is a terrain park specific safety program that you should check out before using terrain parks.

Slope Safety

Common Sense, it's one of the most important things to keep in mind and practice when on the slopes. The National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) believes education, helmet use, respect and common sense are very important when cruising down the mountain. NSAA developed Your Responsibility Code to help skiers and boarders be aware that there are elements of risk in snowsports that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.

For a full list of all the National Ski Area Association safety objectives, please click here.

Powderhorn Mountain Resort is committed to promoting slope safety. In addition to those using traditional alpine ski equipment, others on the slopes include snowboarders, telemark skiers or cross-country skier, skiers with disabilities, skiers with specialized equipment and others. Always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing and snowboarding that common sense and personals awareness can help reduce. Know your ability level and stay within it. Observe Your Responsibility Code listed below and share with others on the slopes the responsibility for a great snowsports experience.
  

Seven Points to Your Responsibility Code
  • Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects
  • People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them
  • You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others
  • Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment
  • Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas
  • Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely
KNOW THE CODE: IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
