Play It Safe

Snowsports can be enjoyed in many ways. There may be people using alpine, snowboarding, telemark, cross country or other specialized equipment such as that used by disabled or other skiers. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, you should always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements or risks in snowsport activities that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below and share with other snowsport participants the responsibility for a great snowsport experience.

Liberty Mountain Resort strongly advises all skiers and boarders to follow the following "Responsibility Code."

Once you have familiarized yourself with proper safety on the slopes, we invite you to meet the Liberty Mountain Safety Department, and learn a bit more from our safety guide.

Your Responsibility Code: Safety is everyone's responsibility!

  • Always stay in control.
  • People ahead of you have the right of way.
  • Stop in a safe place for you and others.
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging, look uphill and yield.
  • Use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  • Observe signs and warnings, and keep off closed trails.
  • Know how to use the lifts safely.
  • If you have a collision on the slopes resulting in injury to yourself or another skier, you must stay at the site until Ski Patrol arrives.
  • DO NOT ski/ride slopes too difficult for your ability.
  • All skiers are responsible for their equipment and belongings; the resort is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen equipment.

KNOW THE CODE. IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

Additional Tips:

Tips Before Hitting the Slopes

  • Get in shape. Don't try to ski yourself into shape. You'll enjoy skiing more if you're physically fit.
  • Obtain proper equipment. Be sure to have your ski or snowboard bindings adjusted correctly at a local ski shop. You can rent good ski or snowboarding equipment at resorts.
  • When buying skiwear, look for fabric that is water and wind-resistant. Look for wind flaps to shield zippers, snug cuffs at wrists and ankles, collars that can be snuggled up to the chin and drawstrings that can be adjusted for comfort and keep wind out. Be sure to buy quality clothing and products.
  • Dress in layers. Layering allows you to accommodate your body's constantly changing temperature. For example, dress in polypropylene underwear (top and bottoms), which feels good next to the skin, dries quickly, absorbs sweat and keeps you warm. Wear a turtleneck, sweater and jacket.
  • Be prepared. Mother Nature has a mind of her own. Bring a headband or hat with you to the slopes, 60 percent of heat-loss is through the head. Wear gloves or mittens (mittens are usually better for those susceptible to cold hands).
  • Wear sun protection. The sun reflects off the snow and is stronger than you think, even on cloudy days!
    Always wear eye protection. Have sunglasses and goggles with you. Skiing and snowboarding are a lot more fun when you can see.

Tips While On the Slopes

  • Take a lesson. Like anything, you'll improve the most when you receive some guidance. The best way to become a good skier or snowboarder is to take a lesson from a qualified instructor.
  • The key to successful skiing/snowboarding is control. To have it, you must be aware of your technique, the terrain and the skiers/snowboarders around you. Be aware of the snow conditions and how they can change. As conditions turn firm, the skiing gets hard and fast. Begin a run slowly.
  • Skiing and snowboarding require a mental and physical presence. If you find yourself on a slope that exceeds your ability level, always leave your skis/snowboard on and side step down the slope.
  • The all-important warm-up run prepares you mentally and physically for the day ahead.
  • Drink plenty of water. Be careful not to become dehydrated.
  • Curb alcohol consumption. Skiing and snowboarding do not mix well with alcohol or drugs.
  • Know your limits. Learn to ski and snowboard smoothly-and in control. Stop before you become fatigued and, most of all have fun.
  • If you're tired, stop skiing. In this day and age of multi-passenger gondolas and high-speed chairlifts, you can get a lot more time on the slopes compared to the days of the past when guests were limited to fixed grip chairlifts.
