Skiers' Responsibility Code
Whether you ski, snowboard, telemark or enjoy downhill slopes on other
types of gear, you need to know "the rules of the road"
so that you and everyone around you will have a safe, fun day. Your
Responsibility Code is endorsed by every professional ski and snowboard
association. You'll see it posted at many resorts to remind you of
seven simple safety guidelines:
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people
- 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
- 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.
Know the code. It's your responsibility.
Be safety conscious.
