Know the Code

The Skier & Rider Responsibility Code of Conduct:

  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 & warnings, and keep off closed trails.
  7. Know how to use the lifts safely.

Smart Style for Freestyle Terrain:

  1. Make A Plan  -  every time you use freestyle terrain, make a plan for each feature you want to use.  Your speed, approach and take off will directly affect your maneuver and landing.
  2. Look Before You Leap  -  scope around the jumps first, not over them.  Know landings are clear, and clear yourself out of the landing area immediately.
  3. East Style It  -  start small and work your way up (inverted aerials are not recommended).
  4. Respect Gets Respect  -  from the lift line and throughout the parks, do it.
