Have terrain parks hurt freeriding standards? My vote would be no overall. It is true that both reduced, or no, forward lean for park riding, and skidding to line up for jumps or rails, can lead to some ugly turns. But, even rail specialists can generally turn pretty well on other parts of the hill if they're good in the park. Good park riding also promotes athletic riding overall, an important intangible asset for a rider to have.
