New to winter snowsports? Let us be the first to welcome you to the awesome world of Skiing and Snowboarding. Much like golf, swimming, and tennis - snow sports are activities you will be able to participate in and enjoy for much of your life. Here are a few basics of skiing and snowboarding attire to help inform you about your new adventure.
Just like the streets of America, there are many signs to follow and obey at ski areas. These signs provide important information such as the difficultly level of the trails. Always be observant and aware of your surroundings and obey the signs of the slopes. Here are some of the basic signs that designate trail difficulty.
HELMET SAFETY – A GOOD IDEA
Colorado Ski Country encourages you to educate yourself on the benefits and limitations of wearing ski and snowboard helmets. Helmets provide added protection when you fall, but wearing a helmet doesn’t give you permission to ski or snowboard faster or more recklessly.
Here in Colorado Ski Country, we proudly promote the seven points of the skier and snowboarder Responsibility Code. The Code is a list of seven key tenets that outline key steps to enjoying a safe day on the slopes. In fact, the Code is incorporated into Colorado’s Ski Safety Act. It’s up to you – and your friends and loved ones – to know and follow the code!
