Our goal is to provide a safe and fun mountain experience by enforcing personal responsibility and respect for others and the environment. Mountain High heavily promotes proper resort etiquette as outlined in Your Responsibility Code and Smart Style.
Your Responsibility Code
Common Sense, it's one of the most important things to keep in mind and practice when on the slopes. The National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) believes education, helmet use, respect and common sense are very important when cruising down the mountain. NSAA developed Your Responsibility Code to help skiers and boarders be aware that there are elements of risk in snowsports that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.
10 Points to Your Responsibility Code
- Always stay in control. You must be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead or downhill of you have the right of way. You must avoid them.
- Stop only where you are visible from above and do not restrict traffic.
- Look uphill and avoid others before starting downhill or entering a trail.
- You must prevent runaway equipment.
- Read and obey all signs, warnings, and hazard markings.
- Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- You must know how and be able to load, ride, and unload lifts safely. If you need assistance, ask the lift attendant.
- Do not use lifts or terrain when impaired by alcohol or drugs.
- If you are involved in a collision or incident, share your correct information with each other and a ski area employee.
KNOW THE CODE: IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

The Smart Style video along with the TerrainParkSafety.org work together to emphasize the importance of safety in terrain parks across the country. Please visit the www.TerrainParkSafety.org for a comprehensive look at the Smart Style program.
NSAA together with many other industry associations and sponsors has created safety programs to protect skiers and riders on the slopes. Smart Style, Know the Code, Lids on Kids, Kids on Lifts and the National Safety Month are just a few programs created to keep all skiers and snowboarders educated and safe.
