Collision Safety & Slow Zones

Collision Safety

Complementing the Responsibility Code and it's 7 tenets, #RideAnotherDay promotes 3 actions every skier and rider can take to help keep themselves and those around safer on the slopes. These three actions are:

  1. Be Ready - Be ready to slow down or avoid objects or other people at any time. Ski and ride in such a way that you are always able to control yourself regardless of conditions and avoid others and objects you may encounter on the run, groomed or otherwise.
  2. Stay Alert - Stay alert to what’s going on around you, especially other skiers and riders. Being aware of those around and changing conditions will help you have a fun and safe day on the hill.
  3. Plan Ahead - Ease up at blind spots, check uphill when merging onto trails, and give other skiers plenty of room when passing. Look out for spots on the run where traffic merges or you can't see what's coming next. If you are unfamiliar with a run, take it easy the first time down it and make note of places where you'll want to slow down, such as cat tracks and rollers. Also, give other skiers and riders lots or room, especially if you are passing them. There's plenty of space out there, so there's no need to crowd each other.

By doing these three things every run, you'll be helping keep the slopes safe and enjoyable, for you and everyone else.

Slow Skiing/Riding Zones

Slow skiing/riding zones are shaded yellow on the trail map and marked with slow signs on the hill. Slow Zones are located in high traffic areas where skier/riders of varying ability levels ski/ride together. While skiing/riding in Slow Zones, we ask that you take a slower pace and ski/ride at the same relative speed as those around you. Fast and aggressive skiing/riding will not be tolerated.
