KNOW THE CODE
“Your Responsibility Code” was established in 1966 by the National Ski Areas Association as a code of ethics for all skiers & riders on the mountain. Ultimately safe skiing and snowboarding on the mountain is each person’s responsibility. Following “Your Responsibility Code” will help all skiers and snowboarders have a safer mountain experience.
Your Responsibility Code
Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects. Part of your responsibility, as a skier/snowboarder is to be in control at all times on the slopes. Be aware of your speed and the speed of those around you to maintain safe skiing on the slopes. People ahead you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them. When approaching other skiers and snowboarders on the slopes, remain a clear distance from them when passing. Watch for skiers making quick turns to the right and left in front of you. Keep distance from the skier or snowboarder in front of you to allow for enough room to stop or swerve if they make a sudden turn or stop. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above. If you need to take a rest or wait for friends on the slopes, select a spot on the trail where you can be clearly seen by someone approaching from above. Do not stop in the middle of a trail—move to the side. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail look uphill and yield to others. Keep an eye out for skiers up the hill as you enter a trail. It is your responsibility to make sure the trail is clear before entering or beginning again.
Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment. Safety straps and ski stops are required to make sure a lost ski or snowboard does not injure another skier.
Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of all closed areas. Obey the closed trail signs. Trails are closed due to avalanche danger, unstable conditions or exposed rocks and terrain. Prior to using any lift, you must have knowledge and the ability to load, ride and unload safely. Stay within your ability and board lifts carefully and safely. Ask lift operators for help if unsure about loading and unloading procedures.
