The National Ski Areas Assn. advises that all skiers and riders follow these rules on the hill. Breaking them can result in the loss of your lift pass:

•Stay in control and on terrain that is within your ability.

•Only stop in a safe place, on the side of a slope, where you are visible to other skiers and riders.

•When starting down a hill or when merging, look uphill and yield.

• Look uphill before entering a trail.

•Slow down when entering an intersecting area.

•Always obey slow signs.
