Your Responsibility Code
1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
First Aid/Ski Patrol
On-site clinics are located in the Park City and Canyons base areas. First aid facilities are available at the top of many lifts as indicated on the map. If you come across an accident, cross a pair of skis or place a snowboard in the snow uphill of the scene to warn other skiers and to help Ski Patrol locate the accident. Do not move the injured person unless absolutely necessary. Notify a patroller, have someone call for patrol or contact a lift attendant at the base of any lift and have them contact patrol. For Ski Patrol/Dispatch call (435) 615-3322.
Certain areas (indicated on the map in yellow) are designated as SLOW ZONES. Please observe the posted slow areas by maintaining a speed no faster than the general flow of traffic. Space and speed are especially important in these areas. Fast and aggressive skiing and riding will not be tolerated.
Park City encourages our guests to educate themselves on the benefits and limitations of winter sports helmets. Regardless of whether or not you choose to wear a helmet, every winter sport participant shares responsibility for his or her safety and for that of others using the ski area facilities.
Tree Well and Deep Snow Safety:
Skiing and snowboarding off the groomed runs and in deep powder is one of the most exciting and appealing parts of the sport. However, if you decide to leave the groomed trails you are voluntarily accepting the risk of a deep snow immersion accident. A deep snow or tree well immersion accident occurs when a skier or rider falls into an area of deep unconsolidated snow and becomes immobilized and suffocates. Deaths resulting from these kinds of accidents are referred to as a NARSID or Non-Avalanche Related Snow Immersion Death. Become educated on how to reduce the risk of NARSID through your own action and awareness. ALWAYS ski or ride with a partner. The website www.deepsnowsafety.org is intended to assist all skiers and riders in learning about the risks and prevention of deep snow immersion accidents.
Notice of Inherent Risks and Assumption of Risks
Under Utah law, a skier/rider assumes the risk of any injury to person or property resulting from any of the inherent dangers and risks of skiing/riding and may not recover from any ski area operator for any injury resulting from any of the inherent dangers and risks of skiing, including: changing weather conditions; existing and changing snow conditions; bare spots, rocks, stumps, trees; collisions with natural objects, man-made objects, or other skiers/riders; variations in terrain; the failure of skiers/riders to ski/ride within their own abilities; cliffs, extreme terrain, jumps; and freestyle terrain. CAUTION: snowcats, snowmobiles and snowmaking may be encountered at any time.
Vail Resorts Statement: Usage of Drones (5.28.15)
In recent years, unmanned aerial systems (more commonly known as “drones”) have become increasingly popular among guests, event promoters and marketing teams. For safety reasons, recreational drone use is not permitted under our operating plans with the USFS. Likewise, commercial use is also prohibited on Vail Resorts’ property, except in limited circumstances when an approved operator has obtained an FAA exemption and received written permission from the resort. This includes use associated with special events, marketing and in film/photo applications.
