Terrain Safety - Make a plan!
Everytime you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and take off will directly affect your manueauver and landing.
1. 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.
2. Easy style it. Start small and work your way up. Inverted aerials are NOT recommended.
3. Respect gets respect. From the lift line throughout the mountain.
