Abstract

The objective of this project was to develop ways to design safer terrain parks. Two separate models, The Geometrical Jump Design Model and The Speed Model, were developed and produced criteria for the initial design and predicted the speed for any jump. To understand the opinions of society on terrain park safety and this research, questionnaires were distributed within the skiing culture. Through field data and surveys it was found that utilizing terrain park design models and integrating them into society and terrain would mostly be welcomed and used.
