Avalanche, Snow Safety and Closures

Avalanche and Snow Safety

Avalanches may occur both inside and outside of the developed ski area at any time. Avalanches are an inherent risk of the sport due to the nature of snow and its accumulation on steep, mountainous terrain. When skiing in deep, unconsolidated snow, beware of the risk of deep snow immersion accidents and/or suffocation, particularly around the base of trees. Always ski with a partner, stay aware and observe all posted signs and warnings

Backcountry Warning

The ski area abuts US Forest Service land that may be beyond the ski area boundary. The ski area assumes no responsibility for individuals who elect to go into the backcountry terrain beyond the ski area boundary. To access the backcountry, use designated ski area exits. Areas beyond the ski area boundary are not patrolled or maintained. Avalanches, unmarked obstacles and other natural hazards exist. Be aware: the backcountry avalanche hazard may be extreme. Rescue in the backcountry, if available, is the responsibility of the County Sheriff. It will be costly and may take time. If a sign indicates the area beyond the sign is closed, do not ski in the terrain beyond the sign. Skiing in closed areas is against the law and you may be criminally prosecuted. 

Know the Signs
