Terrain parks are exciting and really get the adrenalin flowing, but it is always important to be aware of safety first. PEEPS, which stands for Park Etiquette and Education Program, is an extremely beneficial safety program to improve the terrain park experience for our guests. This program allows you to check out the latest information regarding terrain park safety. You may be thinking, "I just want to look cool on the terrain park and impress all my friends," but what isn't cool is performing a difficult trick, while not using the proper safety techniques and hurting yourself. This in the long run is way worse than feeling like safety isn't "cool."
All you have to do is go to mypeeppass.com and begin by choosing Boyne Highlands, and then click "Get Started." The different pages are filled with information regarding various aspects of a terrain park, such as different style terrains, what different symbols mean, and other safety tips. Along the process there are simple quizzes, but don't freak out, because they are just there to make sure you are soaking up the information. Park Smart represents five fundamental ideas that will help everyone have a better terrain park experience!
- Start Small
- Make a Plan
- Always Look
- Take it Easy
ATML is another important aspect of terrain park etiquette to keep in mind while shredding out there. You can use it as a mental checklist!
- A is for Approach: All the prep prior to your takeoff.
- T is for Takeoff: Setting the maneuver in motion.
- M is for Maneuver: The style zone! Control and style between your takeoff and landing.
- L is for Landing: Get it back on the snow and in control!
Going through and taking the time to be aware of park safety is essential to becoming a terrain park pro! Nothing is certain in life, but by preparing yourself for difficult challenges ahead you have a better chance for an awesome outcome! I went through and completed PEEPS and earned my PEEPS pass.
