No matter the level of experience, all skiers must follow the code of conduct to maintain personal safety and the well-being of others. The code outlines proper practices when using the mountain. Accessible around all ski resorts, the rules also often are printed on the back of lift tickets, depending on the venue.
Rules cover ski control, merging, and right of way. For example, a skier always gives a person downhill the right of way. He or she should yield to the downhill skier and make every effort to veer off to a pathway that will ensure the other person’s safety. Additionally, they must stop in locations that are visible and not obstructive to a trail.
