If you are Freestyle Skiing / Snowboarding in Ski Parks, such as performing tricks, these activities are covered as long as they are in the designated areas. Usually, the Ski Park is just to the side of a piste and it is specifically designed for tricks, e.g. there is usually a halfpipe and a few manmade snow jumps. This activity is commonly known in today's language as Freestyle.

Popular Locations

Mammoth Mountain, California

This popular place to hit the Ski Park has three award winning Parks. If you do not want to deal with huge crowds, try to avoid it during the weekends.

Keystone, Colorado

The A51 park comprises more than 60 acres, an area that is split up into five main sections.

There are more than 35 obstacles, which offer rides suitable for all skill levels. It boasts everything from a beginners park to rides suitable for the pros.

Buttermilk, Colorado

This is one of the best places in the world for Winter Sports, renowned for its massive jumps and step downs.

If you visit in the beginning of February, you will have the opportunity to ride the exact same jumps as are used in the games.

Whistler / Blackcomb, Canada

Because of the presence of Blackcomb and Whistler mountains, this ski area is home to more professional Skiers and Snowboarders than any other place in the world.

There are bowls, chutes and parks, while the back country riding increasing in popularity. One of the absolute favourites is the Nintendo Terrain Park.

Tignes, France

Famous for boasting the longest ski season, the Tignes Board Park is better for beginner and intermediate Boarders because of the smaller kickers.

As it is sponsored by Swatch, it has a system with cameras across the park that will film your run and will save the footage online.

This allows you to watch, share and download images of yourself doing tricks.

Mayrhofen is one of Austrias best Winter Sports locations.

On the South Island, this is a Mecca for Winter Sports enthusiasts. There are no fewer than 40 boxes, rails, kickers and even a superpipe.

The park offers late night riding on both Tuesdays and Fridays.

Common Injuries

Injuries are easily sustained when Skiing or Snowboarding, with abrasions and contusions being the most common ones.

There are, however, also several more serious injuries and conditions that might even require surgery if not taken care of in the beginning stages.

Snowboarders Ankle: This Talus bone fracture is 15% more common among Snowboarders and Skiers than other people. It is often caused by a history of many sprained ankles. This long term abuse of the ankle joint could eventually result in joint deterioration and even disability.

Wrist Injuries: Because your natural reflex is to put your hand out to break a fall, wrist injuries are commonly sustained by falling when descending.

Dislocated Shoulder: This injury is easy to sustain and can put you out of action for up to two or three weeks. This is often followed by about six weeks of rehabilitation.

Knee Ligament: About a third of all winter sports injuries have something to do with the knee. And there is a noticeable increase in the number of cases of knee ligament ruptures in the past two decades. This can be explained by the use of new bindings and new ski boots that reduce the risk of suffering ankle and shin injuries, but do move the effects to the area around the knee.
