Natural hazards occur throughout the Manning Park Ski Resort area and are an inherent risk when skiing or snowboarding. You can, however, minimize your risk by following the Alpine Responsibility Code. The obligation of every skier and snowboarder is to ski and ride in a safe, controlled and responsible manner. Please take the time to read the Code. Mountain safety at Manning Park Resort begins with everyone following these guidelines.
Please observe all run closures. The area beyond the ski boundary is hazardous backcountry terrain. The area is uncontrolled, unmarked, not inspected, not patrolled and includes many risks, dangers and hazards, including avalanche. Do not duck ropes.
When skiing in treed areas, also be aware of the risk of tree wells—the hole or depression that forms around the base of a tree. Tree well incidents occur when a skier or snowboarder falls head first into the depression and becomes immobilized by deep snow. There are ways to reduce risk when skiing in treed areas, please visit here for more information about tree well safety and snow immersion suffocation (SIS).
Please do not hesitate to contact Manning Park Resort staff with any safety questions or concerns.
