Safety is always a serious concern.

The National Ski Areas Association's safety campaign promotes responsible mountain behavior. Just follow seven simple rules - the "dos" of safe skiing - and you'll be doing a big favor to yourself and everyone else on the slopes.

Your Responsibility Code

  1. Always stay in control.
  2. People ahead of you have the right of way.
  3. Stop in a safe place for you and others.
  4. Whenever starting downhill or merging, look uphill and yield.
  5. Use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  6. Observe signs and warnings, and keep off closed trails.
  7. Know how to use the lifts safely.
