IMO I would check out Beaver Creek's Park 101. Some easy ride on dance boxes and great beginner/old man features! Check it...

Try the Freeway 8 park at Breck. Avoid the first two jumps (biggest ones in the park) and try some of the smaller ones or do some grinds.

That first jump takes you just about vertical.... I went over it full speed my first time ever in the park. No, I didn't land the jump Got some good video of it, though!

That is about the dumbest advice I have ever seen. That is how people get hurt in the park for no good reason.

Breck has a great beginner park on Trygve's Run on Peak 8 (just past Freeway off 4'Oclock). There is also a slightly bigger featured (at least last year) beginner park on Peak 9.

All the basic freestyle videos we have up were shot in the Trygve's park over the past few springs. The bigger stuff was in Park Lane, the medium sized feature park.

Definitely do not go to freeway 8, what the fuck.

A51 has a great beginner line on the far right that you can do.

Besides the other Breck beginner park listed there is one on peak 9 that is usually not crowded, small, but you can practice without feeling like an idiot in front of people who are really good.
