New Test Methods for Measuring the Surface Shape of Snow Sport Freestyle Terrain Park Jumps

1. Scope

The scope of the committee shall be standardization of specifications, test methods, practices, and terminology for:

Personal equipment used in snow and water sports (including but not limited to snow skiing, snowboarding, water skiing, wakeboarding, and inflatables) to help reduce the potential risk of injury and the promotion of knowledge as it relates to standards for snow and water sports equipment.

Freestyle jumping features located in designated terrain parks at ski areas expressly constructed for recreational, non-competitive jumping to help reduce the potential risk of injury and the promotion of knowledge as it relates to standards for freestyle jumping features.

The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and other organizations having mutual interest.

Keywords

jump; terrain park; freestyle terrain; takeoff; lip; knuckle; deck; landing; approach; snow surface measurement

Rationale

In order to research impacts of jump design on jump users, it is necessary to be able to compare jump measurements from jumps built at different ski resorts. In order to compare numbers accurately, data must be found and formatted in a standardized fashion.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
