Responsibility Code

Your Responsibility Code

Skiing can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled or other skiers. 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 that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience.


  1. Stay in control.
  2. People ahead have the right of way.
  3. Stop in a safe place for you and others.
  4. When starting downhill or merging, look uphill and yield.
  5. Use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  6. Observe signs and warnings, and keep off of closed trails.
  7. Know how to use the lifts safely.

Know the Code

Terrain Safety - Make a plan!

Everytime you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use. Your speed, approach and take off will directly affect your manueauver and landing.

1.  Look before you leap.  Scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know your landings are clear and clear yourself out of the landing area.

2.  Easy style it. Start small and work your way up. Inverted aerials are NOT recommended.

3.  Respect gets respect. From the lift line throughout the mountain.

Smart Style

Responsible Chairlift Use

To safely use the chairlifts, always remember:


    • Need assistance? Ask the lift attendant for help. Smallest kids should load closest to the attendant.
    • Remove & carry packs. Do not use phones, music or games while loading or unloading.
    • It is OK to miss a chair and wait for the next one.
    • When loading, watch for approaching chair and then sit to the back once seated!
    • Drop something? Let it FALL. Any item dropped can be picked up later.
    • Absolutely NO horseplay on the lifts!!
