Used in snowboarding and skiiing to describe an unsafe/unpredictable/hazzardous park, urban or backcountry feature.

Also used in both sports to describe a peice of terrain/snow pack that is considered unpredictable and likely to avalanche.
" the transition on that kicker was super sketchy but buddy managed to stomp the landing anyway."

"We made a couple of turns but the snow was really sketchy and could easily have we got the hell outta there."

Something that just doesn't feel right. If it makes you bob your head side to side, squint, and say, "ehhhhhh", then it's probably sketchy.
"I agree. Yeah, this is totally sketchy."

Used to describe a place that is shady, iffy or just generally makes one feel unsafe.

The word was created by a passer-by to describe Vancouver's shady east side and grew like wildfire across the nations.
Going into a poor area that doesn't feel safe is sketchy.
Not down with this guy he is super sketchy.

A word of which the true meaning is known only by the user. Can be used to describe either a shady event/location/person, or a cool event/location/person. Has also been used to express degrees of confusion.
For example:

Sally: “Jim’s acting sketchy as hell.”

Mary: “What do you mean? That word makes no sense.”
