Schweitzer's Terrain Parks
Easily accessed off the Basin Express, The Stomping Grounds Terrain Park is Schweitzer’s signature park and hosts a variety of our largest jump and jib features. A park pass is required to enter the Stomping Grounds creating less congestion, and ultimately, more fun for you. check out how to get your Stomping Grounds Park Pass below.
Southside Progression Park
The Southside Progression Park, located just South of the Stomping Grounds, provides a fun and unintimidating vibe. With a variety of medium jump and jib features, South Park is a great place to warm up before heading to the Stomping Grounds, to learn new tricks, or to simply have a blast with your friends.
The Terrain Garden, located above the Enchanted Forest on Musical Chairs, is the place for our younger riders and beginner park users to get a feel for freestyle terrain. The features are small and low to the ground, with an atmosphere focused around family fun.

Stomping Grounds Park Pass
In an effort to educate users of Schweitzer’s terrain parks; and with the intention of making the Stomping Grounds safer, and more fun for riders, we continue our terrain park pass program this winter season. The pass will be required for anyone entering the Stomping Grounds facility which contains our largest features. Although we do not require the pass for use of the Southside Progression Park, or the Terrain Garden, we strongly encourage all users of our freestyle terrain to go through the program and purchase their pass.
To get your Stomping Grounds Terrain Park Pass, follow these simple steps:
- Watch the Park Smart video.
- Take the quiz. Take your time so you don’t have to do it over again.
- Accept the online agreement.
- Purchase your Pass. A $5 fee will get you your park pass for the entire season (you may pay online or at the season pass office)
There is no charge for day tickets to use the Stomping Grounds. If you wish to go through the Park Pass Program on the mountain, or you’re just here visiting, come see us in the Terrain Park Tower, located in the middle of the Stomping Grounds Terrain Park, anytime during the day.
"The Schweitzer Park Pass program was implemented in 2010 after requests by our regular Stomping Grounds users and terrain park employees. It is meant to educate riders who are interested in using our parks, and to reduce improper use of our facilities. It is up to you, the rider, to help make this program succeed by following Park Smart and the Skier Responsibility Code while on the mountain, by having your park pass available and visible for our pass checkers and park rangers, and by encouraging proper use of park features and terrain park etiquette. We have worked hard over the years to streamline the process, and to make it as convenient as possible to get your pass. The program has been hugely successful in helping create a fun and safe atmosphere in our parks, and I thank you for your support. We always encourage feedback or suggestions throughout the season if you think of ways to make it operate more smoothly, and we hope you have a great time in our parks."
