Mountain Safety & Risk Awareness

Skiing, snowboarding and other activities that take place at ski areas involve the risk of injury. The information contained in the Safety and Risk Awareness section of this website is intended to inform you of the risks, dangers, and hazards that you may encounter at a ski area and help you while enjoying these activities. Whether you are a participant in these activities, a visitor, or a parent or guardian of a minor participant, please take the time to familiarize yourself with the Safety and Risk Awareness information on this website.

Downhill area guests must observe the Alpine Responsibility Code, Nordic area guests must observe the Cross-Country Responsibility Code. See below to learn more about our codes. Our ski patrol is available to assist with on-mountain emergencies.

 If you are in need of assistance in the Downhill or Nordic area, please dial the number bellow or visit any operating lift terminal. For other emergencies, please dial 911.

Know The Code

There are elements of risk that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Regardless of how you decide to use the slopes, always show courtesy to others. Please adhere to the code listed below and share with others the responsibility for a safe outdoor experience.

    If you are unfamiliar with the use of a chairlift or have questions, please ask a lift attendant for assistance and directions. Ski and Snowboard lessons are also great way to learn about using the chairlifts.
