Do exercises under supervision, away from other skiers and always adhere strictly to the NSAA (National Ski Areas Association) 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.

Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.

Observe the code below and share with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience.

> 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 ability to load, ride, and unload safely.
