And this is why you don’t come screaming into groomers at acute angles. The skier in the orange has every right to be pissed and I hope he didn’t this didn’t end his day or worse. Be smart, be aware, follow the skier’s code:

THE CODE:

 

  • Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  • People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  • You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  • Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  • Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  • Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
