Your Responsibility Code
Skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed in many ways. At mountain resorts, you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment for disabled enthusiasts. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing and snowboarding that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below, and share with other skiers and boarders the responsibility required to have a great experience.
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
- You must not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.
- Whenever starting downhill, or merging onto a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
- Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load and unload safely.
KNOW THE CODE. IT’S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
Be safe and stay aware of your surroundings at all times.
