Snow sports carry inherent risks, which means certain risks are built into those sports’ basic nature and ski resorts cannot eliminate them. Because of this fact, resorts are incredibly dependent on guests making good decisions on a constant basis. Snow sports require active participation; whether it is loading and unloading chairlifts, paying attention to speed, skiing in control, or paying attention to safety messaging from resorts, guest decision-making is a significant driver of safety. Guests must understand their limits and respect their fellow skiers and riders. Therefore, resorts and guests must work together to ensure the safest environment possible while experiencing the thrill and excitement of what the mountains have to offer.
