Before affixing your pass or allowing any pass to be affixed to your person, your attention is directed to a posted “Warning to Skiers” sign which is stated below and displayed where tickets are purchased. New York State Law requires you to seek, read, review, and understand the “Warning to Skier” before you decide to participate in the sport of skiing or snowboarding.
Warning: Downhill skiing and snowboarding, like many other sports, contains inherent risks including, but not limited to the risk of personal injury, including catastrophic injury, or death, or property damage, which may be caused by variations in terrain or weather conditions; or, surface or subsurface snow, ice, bare spots or areas of thin cover, moguls, ruts, bumps, or other persons using the facilities; or rocks, forest growth, debris, branches, trees, roots, stumps; or other natural objects or manmade objects that are incidental to the provision or maintenance of a ski facility in New York State. New York law imposes a duty on you to become apprised of and understand the risks inherent in the sport of skiing, which are set forth above, so that you make an informed decision of whether to participate in skiing notwithstanding the risks. New York also imposes additional duties upon you, to which you must adhere, for the purpose of avoiding injury caused by any of the risks inherent in skiing. If you are not willing to assume all of these risks and abide by these duties, you must not participate in skiing or snowboarding at this area.
YOUR RESPONSIBILITY CODE:
Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
People ahead of you have the right of way. It’s your responsibility to avoid them.
