Know the Code
The National Ski Areas Association established "Your Responsibility Code" in 1966 as a code of ethics for all skiers on the mountain.
Today, the code reflects not only skier safety, but snowboarders and all other on hill outdoor activities.
Ultimately, safe skiing, snowboarding and on mountain activity is each person's responsibility.
Following "Your Responsibility Code" will help all skiers and snowboarders have a safer mountain experience.
Your Responsibility Code Safety on the slopes is everyone’s responsibility. Ski safely - not only for yourself, but for others as well.
• Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid objects.
• People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
• Do not stop where you obstruct the trail or are not visible from above.
• Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, 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 know how to load, ride, and unload safely.
Know The Code. It’s Your Responsibility. This is a partial list. Be safety conscious.
