Each activity presents its own set of risks, and these can be heightened by weather and slope conditions. No one wants a day of fun to be ruined by careless or reckless behavior, so stay aware of your situation and surroundings, know your skill level and choose slopes accordingly, exercise good judgement and always extend courtesy to others. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the important policies laid out below, so you can help promote a culture of safety on the mountain.

Head's Up: Your Responsibility Code
Skiing can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled or other skiers.
