What is the Responsibility Code?

Skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed in many ways. At areas, you may see people using alpine skis, snowboards, telemark skis, cross country skis, and other specialized equipment, such as that used by people with disabilities. 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 listed below, and share with other skiers and riders 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.

Know the code. It’s your responsibility.

*Note: This is a partial list. Be safety conscious.

The National Ski Areas Association has put together a “Know the Code” video; view it below.

My spouse has never been skiing/snowboarding. Should I teach them?

Many couples, families and friends prefer to leave the lessons to the pros.


Our winter sports staff receives continuous training and certifications, keeping up with the most current equipment and PSAI | AASI lesson standards. There is a progression to teaching a new student on the snow that builds gradually upon the most basic skills.


As students grasp the concepts needed to master the beginner hill, many other factors come into play that are determined by movement analysis – subtleties your pro instructor has been trained to detect that most novice skiers and snowboarders are unaware of.


And finally, our pros take the safety of our guests seriously, integrating the Skier | Snowboarder Responsibility Code into the lesson. Safety + Fun = Learning!
