What's on your Ipod?

The same music that was on the original 10GB Ipod I got in 10th grade. Still rocking. Metallica all day.


Who are your favorite riders/skiers?

My favorite people to ride with are my best friends. My brother Wyatt. Powexplorers Pat Lee and Spencer Cordovano. Smith Optics homies Nasty Nate Farrell and Cory Smith. Mt Baker locs who know the secret stashes. Sun Valley locals who know where and where not to go in the side country. Andy Gilbert and SVSEF coaches who from pipe to pow are always having a good time.


If you could ride anywhere, where would it be?

I still need to get down to South America and explore the Andes Mountains. Thats next on the list after a spring camping/riding mission on the glaciers out of Haines, Alaska. But nothing beats a true powder day on Bald Mountain in Sun Valley or a line off Shucksan's arm at Mt Baker after ripping the Bankde Slalom course.

Smart Style

Smart Style Logo

Four main points of Smart Style

MAKE A PLAN

  • Every time you use Freestyle Terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use.
  • Your speed, approach and takeoff will directly affect your maneuver and landing.

 

LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP

  • Before getting into freestyle terrain observe all signage and warnings
  • Scope around the jumps first not over them
  • Use your first run as a warm up run and to familiarize yourself with the terrain
  • Be aware that the features change constantly due to weather, usage, grooming and time of day
  • Do not jump blindly and use a spotter when necessary

 

EASY STYLE IT

  • Know your limits and ski/ride within your ability level
  • Look for small progression parks or features to begin with and work your way up
  • Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground and in the air
  • Do not attempt any features unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely
  • Inverted aerials increase your risk of injury and are not recommended

 

RESPECT GETS RESPECT

  • Respect the terrain and others
  • One person on a feature at a time
  • Wait your turn and call your start
  • Always clear the landing area quickly
  • Respect all signs and stay off closed terrain and features

 

Be sure you Know the Code: You're Responsibility Code provides safety tips while on the slopes. Smart Style is a terrain park specific safety program that you should check out before using terrain parks.

 

The Sun Valley Ski and Snowboard School will utilize the terrain to heighten the skill level of their freestyle snowboard and skiing students.
