This terrain park safety initiative began in 2001 with the help of the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), Burton Snowboards and a host of other contributing sponsors. The goal of Park Smart is to educate riders about freestyle terrain safety. The orange oval is the symbol used to designate freestyle terrain and is usually posted at the top of the terrain park or pipe.
