Ski & Snowboard Safety

Skiing and snowboarding are sports that challenge the human spirit and require you to remain alert and use your common sense. Ski and snowboard in control, with caution and consideration for others. Be aware of changing conditions. Natural and man-made obstacles exist within the ski area, and are inherent risks in skiing and snowboarding.

Snowmobiles and other snow grooming equipment may be present on the mountain at any time. Respect closed trails and area boundary signs. These areas are closed for your protection. Be advised that while marking devices, warning devices and equipment covers are used to inform you of potential hazards, they do not guarantee your safety and will not protect you from injury. SLOW SKIING areas have been designed for beginner and congested areas. Slow down and go with the flow in these areas. We reserve the right to revoke your ticket for reckless or out-of-control skiing and snowboarding, or failure to observe rules and regulations.

In addition to Your Responsibility Code, the following tips can help reduce your risk and make for a more enjoyable experience:

  • Ski and ride only in areas compatible with your ability
  • Do not take friends down slopes that are beyond their abilities
  • After falling on the slopes or lift ramp, move away quickly to avoid becoming an obstacle to others
  • When resting on a trail, move to one side to avoid blocking others
  • Look ahead and to either side of you and be prepared to stop at any time
  • Ski or ride with a buddy, especially in places where you could need help, such as in trees or deep powder
  • Ski and ride defensively. Expect the unexpected
