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!

  • 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.

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: 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.
