                      Your Responsibility Code

                       Skiing can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas you may see people using
                       alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski
                       equipment, such as that used by disabled or other skiers. 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 the responsibility for a great skiing experience.

                       1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or

                       2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid

                       3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from

                       4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to

                       5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.

                       6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of
                       closed areas.

                       7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride
                       and unload safely.

                       This is a partial list. Be safety conscious.
