1.1 This terminology covers the terms required to describe a cross sectional profile of a snow sport freestyle terrain park jump and does not cover any other terrain park feature.
1.2 The terms are presented in a sequence considered to be the most logical with definitions presented later calling upon those presented earlier. This terminology standard does not require the use of any specific units; Imperial units (feet, seconds, degrees) or metric units (meters, seconds, degrees) can be used.
1.3 The depictions used in this standard are intended to aid in understanding the definitions and are not intended to depict or describe how any particular terrain park jump or its component features should be designed, built or maintained. Some terrain park jumps may use different configurations or combinations of features, or they may not incorporate all of the features depicted or defined in this standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with the use of snow sport terrain park features. Snow sports and the use of terrain park features involve inherent risks, and a terrain park feature that complies with all applicable standards or guidelines cannot eliminate all risks associated with terrain park features. Therefore, it is to be clearly understood that compliance with these applicable standards or guidelines in no way guarantees that injury can be prevented.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
