More Stuff to Know
Know your limits and ability level and select appropriate terrain for YOU.
Know the intended use of the terrain you have chosen. Some features are intended to be used in a series with no stopping. Others individually with stopping areas. Don't know? Ask.
Your actions can take you out of balance and cause serious injury, no matter how the feature is designed or where you land. Land on your feet.
Transitions are changes in the shape and pitch of the snow or feature, or changes from one type of sliding surface to another. They can be gentle or abrupt and demand that users be alert and respond with accurate movements.
Know where to land. The SWEET SPOT is
between the "knuckle" and
the center of the landing zone.
Inverted Maneuvers are not recommended at Okemo.
Be aware that features change constantly.
Read and obey all signs, instructions and warnings.
