Snowpark

First Time in the Snowpark?

The Snowpark is a specially designed trail equipped with different types of features (jumps, ramps, rails, boxes, hits, jibs, half-pipe, quarter pipe, wall, a snowcross course and/or banked surfaces, etc.) for freestyle tricks.

1. Did You Know?

Maneuvers
Inverted maneuvers are prohibited in Québec.
Helmets
Helmets are mandatory for all snowpark users across Québec since February 1 2007.
Limits
Always choose features that match your skill level, and know your limits.
Approach
Your approach, including your speed, balance, and pre-take-off stance, determine whether or not your trick will be successful.
Weather conditions
Weather conditions continually change throughout the day. Adapt your speed and stance accordingly: if it’s icy, the surface is faster; if it’s hot and sunny, the surface softens and slows you down.

2. Adopt a logical style...

Think about it & get a plan together

Make a plan before trying a feature or trick; your speed and stance directly affect your execution and landing.

Visualize your trick before setting out.

Observe before jumping

Inspect features before using them throughout the day.

Wait your turn and make sure that the course is free before you set out. Leave the landing area quickly.

Take it easy

Do warm-ups, start with smaller features, and progress according to your success.

Choose maneuvers that match your skill level to stay in control.

Take lessons to improve your performance.

Respect the snowpark & others

Show the snowpark and others respect, and obey the Mountain Code of Conduct and signs.

Respect attracts respect!

3. Are you familiar with ATTL?

Approach
The approach is when you need to adjust your speed, balance and position as well as visualize the steps for executing your trick.
Take-Off
Take-off is critical to landing your trick. Hold the right stance when you take off on the trajectory that matches the height of your jump.
Trick
This is the moment to let your creativity flow - keep aerial movement under control and always keep the landing area in your line of sight.
Landing
Feet first, land gently in the first third of the landing area and exit the area quickly to make room for the next rider.
