Mountain Safety

Play It Safe! Being on the Mountain is all about fun, and we want to ensure everyone has a great time when they are out playing on our Mountain.

Stay Safe at Liberty

Here are some things to keep in mind when you are out sharing the Mountain with our other guests.

Responsibility Code

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!

1. Always stay in control. You must be able to stop or avoid people or objects.
2. People ahead or downhill of you have the right-of-way. You must avoid them.
3. Stop only where you are visible from above and do not restrict traffic.
4. Look uphill and avoid others before starting downhill or entering a trail.
5. You must prevent runaway equipment.
6. Read and obey all signs, warnings, and hazard markings.
7. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
8. You must know how and be able to load, ride and unload lifts safely. If you need assistance, ask the lift attendant.
9. Do not use lifts or terrain when impaired by alcohol or drugs.
10. If you are involved in a collision or incident, share your contact information with each other and a ski area employee.

Winter sports involve risk of serious injury or death. Your knowledge, decisions and actions contribute to your safety and that of others. If you need help understanding the Code, please ask any ski area employee.

Tips Before You Hit the Slopes

Obtain Proper Equipment

Rent equipment & have your ski or snowboard bindings adjusted at a ski shop.

Water & Wind-Resistant Gear

Wind flaps + snug cuffs at wrists and ankles, collars + drawstrings to keep wind out.

Dress in Layers

Layering allows you to accommodate your body's changing temperature.

Be Prepared

Bring a headband or hat with you to the slopes. Wear gloves or mittens.

Wear Sun Protection

Have sunglasses and goggles with you—the sun is stronger thank you think!

On the Slope Tips

  • 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

Please note: To access the slopes, a lift ticket and sliding device equipment is needed. No foot traffic is allowed above the base area. Refrain from skiing or riding with backpacks or Jam Bags playing music for all to hear. We ask that you be considerate of our other guests and wear earphones while enjoying your personal music selections.
