High Altitude Tips
On the Slopes
- Read the loading and lift information boards. If you're uncertain how to load or unload a certain chairlift, ask the attendant for instructions or help.
- Arrange a meeting place and time in case someone becomes separated from your group; tell someone in your group if you decide to leave the Resort.
- Be "predictable" when skiing or riding; don't suddenly swerve or stop.
- The sun's intensity is far greater at higher elevation.
- If you drop anything from a lift into a closed area or onto a run too difficult for your ability, note the number of the nearest lift tower and report it to the top lift attendant. Mountain Patrol can try to retrieve it.
- Go with the flow; pass others cautiously.
- Observe the areas posted as "Slow" and decrease your speed, no matter what your ability level.
- Fast or reckless skiing and riding can result in injury to you or others and perhaps the loss of your lift ticket.
- Check message boards at the bottom and top of the lifts.
- Flips and somersaults off jumps are not recommended.
- Snowmobiles, grooming and snowmaking equipment may be in operation on any run at any time; stay clear.
- It is your responsibility to know which trails are open. Do not enter closed trails by going through the trees.
- Share the slopes. Enjoy a lifetime of winter sports.
