Mountain Safety Tips …
- Wear a helmet. Helmets have been proven to reduce or prevent head injuries.
- Wrist Guards for Snowboarders
- Take a lesson.
- Carry a ski area map.
- Carry a small first aid kit. Carry any needed medications such as an inhaler or insulin or snack.
- Maintain your equipment. Keep the bindings clean and functioning.
- Wear proper clothes. Cotton jeans and Hoodies are not good ideas. They absorb water and turn into refrigerants. Nothing zaps your day like being cold. Protect your eyes with goggles. You lose most of your body heat through your head. Put on a hat or better yet a helmet.
- At large ski areas or in wooded area don’t go alone. If you are injured it will be hard to find you.
- Avoid listening to music on a headset. You need your ears to hear the people around you. Or hear a snowmobile coming up the hill.
- Stay sober. Don’t smoke dope, or drink while skiing.
Obey the RESPONSIBILITY CODE:
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people and 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 let the people moving go first.
- Always wear safety devices on your ski and boards to prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs, fences and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and the ability to load, ride and unload safely
