Mountain Safety

At Lookout Pass you will see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment, such as "sit skis" used by adaptive skiers. Regardless of how you enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and 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 with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience.
 

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.
 
KNOW THE CODE. IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
 
This is a partial list. Be safety conscious.

Skiing and snowboarding off of the groomed runs in deep powder snow is a big part of the Lookout experience. If you leave the groomed trails, you are voluntarily accepting the specific risks of falling into tree wells or deep snow and suffocating. Learn how to prevent these types of accidents:
