Stay in the Know

Be sure to subscribe to the Ski Oregon email newsletter for updates throughout the winter.

As a reminder, Deep Snow Safety  is a resource  all skiers and riders should utilize. Remember to ski and snowboard with a friend and always keep your partner in site.

Ski and Snowboard Safety

Skiers and snowboarders should always follow the Skier’s Responsibility Code, which exists to raise awareness that there are elements of risk in snow sports that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce:

  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.

Backcountry Tips

If you’re planning on heading into the backcountry, check current avalanche conditions at the Northwest Avalanche Center daily report for the Mt. Hood region. The Central Oregon Avalanche Center publishes forecasts for the area around Mt. Bachelor.

Those skiing in steep and ungroomed terrain should be familiar with Deep Snow Safety and become informed on traveling and recreating in avalanche terrain. Find more tips on skiing and snowboarding safety here. Avalanche forecasts are available through the Northwest Avalanche Center (Mt. Hood), Central Oregon Avalanche Center, and Wallowa Avalanche Center in Eastern Oregon.
