At Lookout Pass fellow riders use alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and
specialized ski equipment; such as "sit-skis" used by adaptive skiers.
Regardless of how you enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others!
Be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense
and personal awareness can help reduce.
We recommend wearing a helmet while skiing and snowboarding.
However, helmets have their limitations and are not the end all for safety.
Observe the code listed below and share the code with others!
