English term or phrase: Jibbing the park?
I am translating a cinema/video website. They set up several video short films contests. This one is about "Tell us the story of your early ski season"

The "header" is as follows:

====
Big mountain? ***Jibbing the park?*** Deliver the story of your early season session and get a chance to win $3,000.
====

I don't understand the meaning of jibbing (from jib or jibe?) nor the meaning of "park" in this context.

Could someone help, by explaining and/or rewording this sentence for me?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Reference information:
a definition of jibbing (apparently snowboarding (and rollerboarding?) slang)

http://www.niftytricks.com/snowboard/dictionary/jib.html

Jibbing means to snowboard on obstacles that are not regularly intended for riding on. This includes: picnic tables, garbage cans, rock walls, boulders, and trees.

Jibbing is usually all about style so make sure if you are going to take your board out of its normal element you do it with enough style to make you smile.
