Skiing, snowboarding, and tubing are outdoor activities in a changing environment. Putting yourself against the hill involves risk of personal injury and property damage to your equipment. Your safety and enjoyment are our first priority.
Nothing ruins a great day of fun as much as an unnecessary accident. Ultimately, safe skiing, snowboarding, and tubing are each person's responsibility. Following "Your Responsibility Code" will help everyone have a safe experience.
Skiing, snowboarding, and tubing are dangerous sports with inherent risks. These risks include but are not limited to: loading, riding, and unloading from ski lifts, variations in snow, steepness and terrain, ice, moguls, features, rocks, trees and other forms of forest growth and debris (above and below the surface), bare spots, lift towers, poles, fencing, utility poles, snowmaking and grooming equipment, and other forms of natural or man-made obstacles on and off designated trails, as well as collisions with equipment, obstacles, or other skiers/snowboarders. Trail conditions vary constantly due to weather change and skier, snowboarder, and tuber use. Inherent in the sport is the risk of permanent, catastrophic injury, or death. As a participant you are acknowledging and accepting such inherent risks.
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 snowboarder and lift safety as well. The points listed in the Responsibility Code are the rules of the road when you are on the mountain. So, whether you ski with one board or two, or use other specialized equipment, always show courtesy to others so that your paths do not cross.
It is important to remember that there are elements of risk in mountain activities that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Please note, violations of Your Responsibility Code, and the following additional rules, ordinances and / or guidelines may result in criminal prosecution, civil liability and /or loss of lift privileges without compensation or refund.
This is a partial list. Be safety conscious. Officially endorsed by the National Ski Areas Association, National Ski Patrol, and Professional Ski Instructors of America.
