Personally, whenever anyone says "they ride park" I am assuming the regular park. Just like when someone says they like to race cars at the track... I don't assume they mean bumper cars at Six-Flags.

I hope most people who are getting into freestyle will learn to say "baby park," "mini park," "progression park," whatever your favorite PC-term is... It really makes a difference when you are talking about stuff.

Our hill only has one park and if you saw it you would laugh but it all I got here
We are not as fortunate as other places in the country to have it so good like many of you out-west riders. So many of us are using what we thought were or are regionally correct terms.

Yeah, too bad I don't fish or smoke...

What's even worse is I grew up in the Utah Rockies and I've never been on a board or skis, and I'll turn 37 in January.

I'm really only talking about stuff that is clearly made for people to learn on. You can do some sick tricks on a plain old car tire buried in the snow.

To me, if the park has jib elements aren't ride on (i.e. you need to ollie a gap) and are longer than 5 feet and jumps (it there are any) need to be at least 15 feet long (i.e. you couldn't clear the gap on foot).
