The Pats Peak endorses the Skier/Snowboarder Responsibility Code.

People enjoy skiing in many ways, using alpine, snowboard, telemark, nordic gear, and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled skiers. Regardless of how you enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in snow sports that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Please observe the code listed below and share with others the responsibility for a great skiing and riding experience.

  • Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or 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 with another trail, look uphill and yield to others.

  • Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.

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

  • Prior to using any lift, be sure you have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.

Know the Code. It's your responsibility!
This is a partial list. Be safety conscious.
