People travel from across the globe to experience
world-class skiing and snowboarding on the incredible
terrain of Canada’s mountains. Beginner, intermediate,
or advanced there’s something for everyone!
Whether you escape after work to the local resorts or push the limits farther afield, ensure you know the Alpine Responsibility Code by heart.
Alpine resorts are bordered by wilderness, so don’t be tempted into thinking that there aren’t any hazards on the mountain.
Canadian ski patrol and avalanche professionals are some of the best in the world and do their utmost to keep as much alpine area as possible safe and open for use.
an area is closed – even if it’s your favorite
run – respect the signage, steer clear and
don’t ever ski out of bounds. Areas are
closed for a reason…your safety. Once you
venture out-of-bounds or into a closed area,
you endanger your life and those of the
Search and Rescue volunteers who’ll come
looking if you don’t make it back.
Always ski and ride responsibly!
