Mountain Safety

Sleeping Giant takes safety seriously. We want our participants to feel safe and have an enjoyable time. We ask that all skiers, snowboarders, and others enjoying the area act responsibly. The staff at Sleeping Giant has come up with 7 ways to ensure safety while on the mountain.

Seven Ways to Ensure Yours (and Others’) Safety:

  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.
