Safety is always a serious concern on ski mountains.
The National Ski Areas Association’s ”Heads Up” safety campaign promotes responsible mountain behavior. By following the seven simple rules-the ”do’s“ of safe skiing, you’ll be doing a big favor to yourself and everyone else on the slopes.
These rules, also known as "Your Responsibility Code", are endorsed by NSAA, PSIA, and NSP.
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- 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 above.
- 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 the ability to load, ride, and unload safely.
Know the code.
It’s your Responsibility.
