Here are the simple rules of respect that are not covered in the standard rules...
*Do not stop or congregate in the lift line to wait for friends or adjust equipment. Wait for friends BEFORE you get into the lift line, not where the chair is loading.
*When it is your turn to load, move forward and get on the chair. Do NOT wait for others or let a chair go by when people are waiting behind you.
*Always warn others when bringing down the safety bar on the chairlift.
*If a single, move forward to fill up the next available chair if there are people waiting in line behind you.
*If you fall while loading or unloading, your FIRST priority is to move yourself and equipment away from the landing area and allow others to keep moving.
*On paths, do not take up the entire width by zigzagging. Respect others moving at different speeds than you are.
*Be aware of your surroundings! Keep your head on a swivel and know where others are regardless of who has the right of way.
*When passing fast, give wide berth to slower skiers/boarders.
*If you drop something while riding on the chairlift, note the spot and do your best to retrieve it.
RESPECT MEANS CONTROL...Be in control of yourself and respect yourself!
