1- Keep it under control!
Remain in control of your speed and direction. Make sure you can stop and avoid any person or obstacle. Skiers or snowboarders are responsible for thier manoeuvres. You must choose trails that correspond to your ability level and stay alert, in case rapid reaction is required to avoid a collision.
2- On trails, yield to those below!
Yield the right of way to people downhill from you and choose a course that ensures their safety. People cannot see everything that is going on around them : we don't have eyes in the back of our heads! On the slopes, you have a clearer view from above; it is up to you to manoeuvre in order to avoid people below you.
3- Get out of the way
A person should stop on a course only if they are visible to those who are uphill and do not obstruct the course. To avoid danger, we recommend that you stop at the sides of the trails.
4- At intersections, yield to those above
When entering a trail and at intersections, yield the right of way to people uphill from you. Just like motorists who must yield at intersections, users must avoid cutting off another person who has already started a descent.
5- Help in the rescue effort
If you are involved in or have witnessed an accident, you must stay on site and identify yourself to a paramedic. Whether involved in the accident or not, the slider must assist another injured person. The slider should also help the paramedic gather the required information.
6- Hold on to your equipment
At all times, use and wear a proper device to prevent runaway equipment. Users must use safety mechanisms that, in the event of a fall, prevent their equipment from getting away from them and injuring another person. In the case of skis, this would consist of a braking system built into the bindings; for snowboards, you should use a leash.
7- No alcohol or drugs
Keep off the lifts and trails if your ability is impaired by the use of alcohol or drugs. These substances weaken mental capacities and affect a person's ability to react rapidly and remain in control of their movements. Alcohol and drugs do not go along with safety.
8- Respect signs
Obey all directional signs and warnings and never venture off the trails or onto a closed trail. The mountain operator posts signs that provide essential information for safely finding your way around the mountain. Consequently, it is important to read and obey them. Ski or snowboard only where it is permitted.
