Maxie's Terrain Park

Freestyle Terrain Parks can be very enjoyable for skiers and boarders of many ability levels, but proper care must be taken to protect yourself. Before heading to the park, please check out the National Ski Area Association's Smart Style safety tips.

Park Smart Terrain Park Safety Program

START SMALL - Work your way up. Build your skills.

MAKE A PLAN - Every feature. Every time.

ALWAYS LOOK - Before you drop.

RESPECT - The features and other users.

TAKE IT EASY - Know your limits. Land on your feet.

The video also illustrates the ATML method: Approach, Take-Off, Maneuver, and Landing. The video highlights an instrumental message in freestyle terrain use: avoid the backseat and land on your feet.


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)

Maxie's Terrain Park is looking better than it ever has. Featuring a new layout with exciting new lines. Skier's right is home to some smaller jumps, rollers, and features for those just beginning to explore the freestyle terrain park. Skier's left features a larger line, including several big airs, and our brand new manual pad. Scattered boxes and rails catering to all ability levels help to fill out the park and allow skiers and boarders to link silky smooth lines.
