Ski Safety is #1!*
Just like driving your car, there are ‘rules of the road’ for ski safety. And to truly enjoy skiing, follow these seven key steps to enjoy a safe and fun day on the slopes.

1. Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
2.Remember that people ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
3. Do 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.
4. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment. Observe all posted signs and warnings.
5. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
6. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
