Mountain Code of Conduct

The Mountain Code of Conduct sets guidelines for happy harmony between all ski area users, and helps reduce the risk of injury. It also applies to snowparks. The term ‟ski” includes any activity connected to a ski area (snowboarding, telemark skiing, etc.)


For everyone’s safety, including yours, skiers must be respectful towards others and obey the Mountain Code of Conduct, as well as any other ski area rules, regulations and sanctions in effect. Patrollers may intervene and confiscate a lift ticket should the Mountain Code of Conduct not be respected.


The Golden Rule: Control!

Keep your speed in check, and always control your direction. Make sure you can stop and avoid any person or obstacle at all times.


Yield to Anyone Downhill of You!

Yield to persons downhill, and choose a course that ensures their safety.


Free Up the Trail!

Only stop if you can be seen from above, and never obstruct the trail.


At Intersections, Yield to Persons Uphill!

Yield to skiers and riders uphill of you when entering a trail, or at intersections.


Help The Ski Patrol!

If you’re involved in or witness an accident, remain at the scene and identify yourself to a first-aider.


No To Runaway Gear!

Always use and wear the appropriate device to prevent runaway equipment.


No Drugs, No Alcohol!

Do not use the lifts or trails when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.


Obey the Signs!

Obey all signs and warnings, and never venture off the trail or onto a closed trail.
