Hovden Ski Resort in Norway has installed fences at the entrance of terrain parks to make sure riders will never be snaked by gapers again. What they call a "Jerry-Trap" is designed to keep amateur skiers out of more advanced areas.

The fence forces riders to hit a rainbow rail (or gap the fence) in order to enter the resort's terrain park. Hovden Park Crew hopes to prevent injuries caused by inexperienced riders and families loitering around features and landings.

So far the park crew has received positive feedback from the fences.
