Mountain Safety

 

UPHILL HIKING & SKIING ALL CURRENTLY AT OWN RISK

March 16, 2020 Update:

No patrol. No maintenance for recreational use, no services. All access is at your own risk. No sledding. Unmarked hazards may be encountered any time (including construction, heavy machinery, man-made objects, variable conditions, avalanches and other hazards).

Responsibility Code

NH law states that each participant in the sport of skiing and snowboarding "accepts as a matter of law, the dangers inherent in the sport, and to that extent may not maintain an action against the operator for any injuries which result from such inherent risks, dangers or hazards," et al. Please refer to NH Statutes Section 225-A:24.

Common sense, awareness, respect for others, respect for the natural environment, and respect for the ski area operation go a long way toward reducing your risk while out on the hill.
