• If the lift operation is interrupted for any reason, remain on the lift until the ski area operator offers instruction or aid.
• Do not eject objects or material from the lift.
• Do not place objects on the uphill track of a surface lift, which may interfere with its normal operation.

• Ski in designated areas only.
• Do not ski on a slope or trail designated as closed by the ski operator.

• Yield to other skiers when entering a trail or starting downhill.
• Remain in constant control of speed and course at all times to avoid contact with other skiers and plainly visible/clearly marked obstacles.
