Safety is a top priority at Gore. Always remind yourself of the Responsibility Code below- these basic tips make for a fun and safe day out on the mountain.
Seven Points to Your Responsibility Code
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.

- MAKE A PLAN - Every feature. Every time.
- ALWAYS LOOK - Before you drop.

Heading into the glades? Remember these tips for a safe and enjoyable adventure.
- Keep your goggles on and pole straps off.
- Don't go into the glades alone. Always bring a buddy.
- New to the glades? Ask about our specialty lessons and tree clinics.
- Start with blue square glades and shorter routes. Work your way up!
Bringing the kids? Have a plan should you get separated. If they get lost, children should go to the base of the nearest lift and let the attendant know. No transporting a child on your person when skiing or snowboarding (no baby packs, kids on shoulders, etc).
Safety first. Orient yourself to our patrol station locations and program our daytime emergency number into your phone: (518) 251-3838.
