STOP ON THE SIDE: When your legs get tired, you need a break, or want to meet up with your
group, do not stop in the middle of the run. Pull to the side of the
trail and stop in a place where you can be seen from all directions to
avoid being hit by downhill skiers/riders. When shredding in the terrain
parks, make sure to clear yourself from the landing area and move away
from the run out after you land your trick.
MAKE A PLAN: Accidents can occur when skiers and riders find themselves on terrain
out of their ability level. Before you head down the mountain, plan your
route using a trail map. While traveling up the lifts, pay attention to
snow conditions and the slope pitch below you to spot the trails and
terrain parks that suit your ability level. When shredding in the
terrain parks, make sure to check out the approach and landing of every
feature before attempting it so you know how much speed and pop is
required to hit it successfully.
SHOW COURTESY TO OTHERS: It is your responsibility to avoid people downhill from you. Give all skiers/snowboarders at least 15 feet of space when passing them, and be prepared for sudden changes in their speed or direction. Show courtesy by shouting out what side you are passing them on. When shredding in the terrain parks, make sure the landing is clear and the person before you has cleared the landing area. Show courtesy by calling your drop before hitting any feature.
KNOW THE ZONE. While on the hill, avoid collisions by giving others 15 feet of space on all sides. If kids are present, go slower and give them even more space. Know that skiers/riders can turn suddenly, so stay in control to obey the 15 feet zone.
