There are elements of risk in all forms of
skiing and boarding that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce:
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 into a trail,
look uphill and yield to others.
Always use restraining 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, ride, and unload safely.
Know the code. It's your responsibility. This is
only a partial list, be safety conscious!
