Think you are ready for the park? Here is a list of tasks/drills you should be able to accomplish before riding in the park, to ensure safety:

  • Straight run forward and switch comfortably
  • Jump up and down in one place while remaining balanced
  • Perform an "Ollie" and "Nollie" while remaining balanced
  • Make foot to foot movements such as "duck-walk" on a board or gentle skating on skis.
  • Make toe to heel adjustments such as small tip/tail presses on skis or quick edge changes standing in one place or moving slow on a flat slope on a snowboard.
  • Align the body perpendicular to the slope
  • Flex and extend the body through a full range of motion
  • Surface spin while maintaining the center of mass over the middle of the skis or snowboard and not catch an edge
  • Create and maintain a carved track in the snow (single, skinny line)
  • Control speed through turn shape, brushing, scrubbing off speed and edging
  • Control basic rotary movements and maintain alignment without twisting tension or rotary force (upper and lower body separation)
  • Glide with enough speed to roll over small bumps and knolls
  • "Ollie" and "Nollie" while sliding at varying speeds
  • Ride with confidence, accuracy and adaptability
