DO NOT go through the park unless you're gonna actually hit the jumps. You're just taking up space if you're just ridin' through.
Now normally I'd agree with this, but wouldn't you agree that the first time at any unfamiliar park you should run through it first so you don't run into any nasty surprises?
Last but not least... learn to ride a snowboard before you hit the park. Not just on easy groomers. Actually ride. It will help you temendously.
Soooo true. I spent 90% of my first season pushing myself on the mountain before I even dared to hit the park. I can't tell you how many people I see almost kill themselves because after 2 hours on a board they think they're Shaun White.
