Your Responsibility Code

Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers and boarders the responsibility of a great winter recreation experience.

  • 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 is your responsibility to avoid them.
  • You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  • Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  • Observe all posted signs and warnings.  Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  • Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride, and unload safely.

For Your Safety

Safety Bar:
While riding the chairlift it is important to use the safety bars as is prompted by signs upon loading and before unloading.  Also, to avoid slipping off the chairlift please sit with your back against the chair and remain facing forward.  Please, no horse play, for safety sake!

Use of Helmets:
Mount Southington recommends the use of helmets. In some situations they can be helpful in avoiding an injury.  There have been many discussions concerning the pros and cons of helmet use.  The final decision rests with the parent/guardian.  At the present time Mount Southington does not rent helmets. Helmets may be purchased in our Ski Shop when the ski area is in operation or at various ski outfitting stores and should be properly fit to maximize their effectiveness. For further information on this topic please visit The National Ski Areas Association website at http://www.nsaa.org/safety-programs/lids-on-kids/.
