Alpine Responsibility Code
There are inherent risks in all snow recreational activities. Common sense, staying in control and personal awareness can reduce these risks. Risks include rapid changes in weather, visibility and surface conditions, as well as natural and artificial hazards such as rocks, trees, stumps, vehicles, lift towers, snow fences and snowmaking equipment. Observe the code and ski and ride with courtesy to others.
- Stay in control and avoid other people and hazards.
- Use appropriate protective equipment, especially helmets, to minimize the risk of injury.
- You must have the ability to use each lift safely. If in doubt ask the lift attendant.
- Obey all signs and warnings, and keep off closed trails and areas.
- It is your responsibility to avoid and give way to people below and beside you.
- Do not stop where you are not visible from above or where you obstruct a trail.
- Before starting downhill, or merging into a trail, look uphill and give way to others.
- Use care to prevent runaway snowboards.
- If you are involved in or see an accident, alert and identify yourself to Resort Staff.
- Be aware that it is dangerous to ski, board or ride lifts if your ability is impaired by drugs or alcohol.
KNOW THE CODE. IT’S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
