Here's the Issue
Your Responsibility Code # 5:
YOU MUST PREVENT RUNAWAY EQUIPMENT
Skis and boards without owners can easily become unguided missiles on our slopes. Avoiding dangerous runaway gear is up to you.
Here’s two minutes of Zen. Yes we all love it when wintery storms freshen up the slopes. We received eight inches over the weekend and the forecast says more this weekend. But in between the high pressure, bluebird days have been glorious. Meticulous groom and wide open riding.

Responsibility Code # 3:
STOP ONLY WHERE YOU ARE VISIBLE FROM ABOVE AND DO NOT RESTRICT TRAFFIC
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. Riding here demands extra awareness in order to remain visible from above. Always stop in safe place for you and others. Avoid impacting traffic around you by stopping on the side of trails.
Be safe - get informed!
It is every skier or rider's individual responsibility to know the right-of-way on the slopes. When approaching others, it is the uphill or faster rider's duty to avoid a collision.
The Skier Responsibility Code was developed by the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) in the 1960s to help teach skiers how to be safe at downhill resorts. It has been updated several times to reflect changes in our sport including a recent revision to add clarity and two new items to what is now called "Your Responsibility Code."
Point 1: Always Stay In Control
