Responsibility Code 3: Stop only where you are visible from above and do not restrict traffic - two snowboarders safely share a run at Mt. Hood Meadows

Responsibility Code # 3:


Choosing a smart place to stop requires being aware of one’s surroundings.  Mt Hood has highly variable terrain that includes many rolls, ridges, wind-drifts, cliffs, boulders and trees.
