Skier Responsibility Code.

Common Sense, it's one of the most important things to keep in mind and practice when on the slopes. The National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) believes education, helmet use, respect and common sense are very important when cruising down the mountain. NSAA developed Your Responsibility Code to help skiers and boarders be aware that there are elements of risk in snowsports that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.

Seven Points to Your Responsibility Code

  1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.

Number 3. Pick the Right Resort

While some resorts might have all the terrain in the world to choose from, the reality for most is that if it's on one mountain, one type of terrain will dominate the landscape. Look for resorts that have excellent grooming, group friendly programs, and a great ski school. This combination will lead to a resort with a high learning curve.  Speak with one of our Adventure Specialist Today to learn more about what resort would be the best fit for your group.
