Safety On The Slopes

Whether you are just a beginner or an expert, a skier or a snowboarder, a day on the slopes is very exciting. It can also be intimidating for anyone who is just learning. The following Trip Safety Guidelines will navigate you through some of the key areas of preparing yourself for your trip to Snow Valley.

There are many things to remember when preparing for your ski or snowboard trip. While the day will be fun, there are also some rules that must be followed. The rules are in place for a reason, primarily safety of yourself and others. Snow Valley wants you to enjoy yourself, and also want you to be safe. Please view our online guidelines to learn about ski area etiquette, safety tips, and important hill signage.

Once you are on the slopes, always be aware of fellow skiers and riders in order to avoid collisions. Know your limits. All runs, as well as the terrain park, have different levels of expertise required. Don’t bow to peer pressure and attempt a run or jump that is beyond your ability. Make sure you know what expertise level the run is marked for and only go into the areas that are within your ability.

It is our goal to inform all guests of what to expect at a ski area and how to ski or ride as safely as possible.

Snow Valley recommends wearing helmets for skiing and riding. Helmets are mandetory in both the Advanced and Beginner Terrain Parks. Skiers and snowboarders are encouraged to educate themselves on the benefits and limitations of helmet usage. The primary safety consideration, and obligation under the Alpine Responsibility Code, is to ski and ride in a controlled and responsible manner.

We hope that you will have a safe and wonderful ski or snowboard trip!
