Slope Safety:

 

  • Know which slopes are right for your skill level and snowboard only on those.
  • Don't snowboard alone.
  • Stay on marked paths and never go past the snowboard area boundary or into a closed area.
  • Pay attention to warning signs such as, "Slow skiing area" and "Caution."
  • Before you start down a hill or merge onto a trail, look uphill to make sure no one is coming toward you.
  • Be aware of the snowboarder's blind spot. Because snowboarders face sideways, they can't see what's behind them. They need to look back and make sure no other snowboarders or skiers are in their blind spot before they make a sharp turn.
  • If you pass other snowboarders or skiers on a narrow trail, call out "On your right" or "On your left" to let them know you're coming up behind them.
  • Never stop in the middle of a trail or in any spot where you can't be seen from above, such as below a drop-off.
  • 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

Lessons can be helpful for snowboarders and Skiers of all levels. Sign up for a lesson from a trained instructor certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). Private lessons will give you the most one-on-one time with an instructor. Less expensive snowboard group lessons work well too and are a chance to make new friends.

  • Do Not Fight A Fall. When You Feel Yourself Falling, Let It Happen. Most Injuries Occur Due To Attempting To Avoid A Fall.
  • Dress Appropriately. No Cotton - No Exceptions. Staying Warm & Dry Is One Of The Most Important Things A New Skier Should Do.
  • Do Not Over Terrain Yourself Or Others. This Means Skiing Within Your Skill & Ability Level. Remember: The Skier Safety Act Requires All Mountain Users To Ski/Ride In Control With The Ability To Stop At Any Given Time.
