Skiing has its risks and it is the
responsibility of every participant to be aware of those risks and do
whatever is possible to avoid injury and death on the slopes.
The NSAA (National Ski Areas Association) sums it all up:
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 below and share with other skiers
the responsibility for a great skiing experience.
• Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or
• 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
• Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail. Look uphill and
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 have the knowledge and ability to
load, ride, and unload safely.

reference and remember to have fun!
