Located at the top of the slopes next to the Triple Lift is our beginner freestyle park dedicated to serving new riders, young riders, and those looking to progress their skills for Empire Park.  The Bonk is stacked with smaller boxes, rails, steel benches, and small jumps.  It’s designed with progression in mind to get a rider used to terrain park features.  The Bonk features a 100’ rope tow to take riders quickly back to the top of the park in order to spend more time riding.  Take advantage of The Bonk’s exclusive rope tow to hot lap the park and get your tricks dialed in.

EMPIRE PARK

Empire Park Terrain Area

Indiana’s largest terrain park - Empire Park is located on an intermediate trail, on the western side of the slopes. Empire Park is a true slopestyle terrain park with the entire trail being devoted to freestyle features.  With an inventory of 40+ features to choose from, it is host to several large jumps and is loaded from top to bottom with features.  Empire Park is serviced by the choice of two lifts, CTEC 1 or the Triple.

Our Park Staff department is dedicated to maintaining our parks to be the best in the area. We are continually adding unique and challenging features during builds throughout the season to provide something different every time you ride with us!

Terrain Park Program

SMART STYLE - Terrain Park Safety 

The National Ski Area Association and Burton Snowboards would like to welcome you to the "Smart Style" Terrain Park Safety initiative. This venture has been a cooperative effort to continue the proper use and progression of terrain parks at mountain resorts while delivering a unified message that is clear, concise, and effective. The more people we can educate and get involved to help spread the word, the better. Visit http://terrainparksafety.org/ for more information

The Smart Style Program - There are four main messages that as associated with Smart Style:

MAKE A PLAN 

  • Every time you use Freestyle Terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use.
  • Your speed, approach, and takeoff will directly affect your maneuver and landing.

LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP

  • Before getting into freestyle terrain, observe all signage and warnings.
  • Scope around the jump first, not over them.
  • Use your first run as a warm up run and to familiarize yourself with the terrain.
  • Be aware the the features change constantly due to weather, usage, grooming, and time of day.
  • Do not jump blindly. Use a spotter when necessary.

EASY STYLE IT

  • Know your limits and ski/ride with your ability level.
  • Look for small progression parks or features to begin with and work your way up.
  • Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground and in the air.
  • Do not attempt any features unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely.
  • Inverted aerials increase your risk of injury and are not recommended.

RESPECT GETS RESPECT 

  • Respect the terrain and others.
  • One person one a feature at a time.
  • Wait your turn and call your start.
  • Always clear the landing area quickly.
  • Respect all signs and stay off closed terrain and features.

 If you don't "KNOW THE CODE", you shouldn't be in the terrain park yet!

 

 

Everyone at our resort is out here to have a good time. If you respect that and respect them, we'll all advance in our skills and have a good time.

PRIOR to using Freestyle Terrain, YOU are responsible for familiarizing yourself with Freestyle Terrain and obeying all instructions, warnings, and signs. Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground and in the air. It is recommended that you master your skills of skiing or snowboarding before attempting to ride in Terrain Parks.
