West Virginia Safety

snowshoe resortWhether you’re staying in your very own Snowshoe Mtn. Real Estate or in Snowshoe Hotel-type Lodging like the Inn at Snowshoe Mountain, Snowshoe Mountain Resort Rentals, Snowshoe Condos, or Snowshoe Hotels, one thing is for sure: The staff at this West Virginia Ski Resort want you to be safe during your Ski WV vacation. For that reason, Snowshoe Ski Resort has instituted a few simple rules meant to ensure the safety of their guests. While on the West Virginia Ski Slopes, you’ll want to adhere to these rules and do your part to look out for the safety of yourself and your fellow skiers and WV Snowboarders.

Those who want to Ski WV at Snowshoe Mountain Resort are expected to employ many of the same tactics drivers use to reduce the risk of traffic accidents. When enjoying a Ski Vacation in West Virginia, a little common sense can go a long way:

  • People in front of you always have the right of way, so you always need to make sure to look out for them and yield to them when necessary.
  • If you’re merging onto a trail or about to ski down the West Virginia Ski Slopes, you’ll want to look uphill and yield to other skiers, because they have the right of way.
  • You’ll also want to be sure to stay in control at all times, so that you’re always able to stop when necessary and able to steer clear of other skiers and anything else that might be in your path.
  • Make sure you keep on the look out for signs and warnings that will keep you informed about the trail on which you’re skiing. If you see a trail or area that is closed, avoid it.
  • Do not stop where you’re likely to block a trail or where you’re not visible to other skiers, as this could lead to danger collisions.
  • Make sure you take precautions that will lessen the probability that your WV Ski equipment will get away from you and become a hazard to other skiers.
  • Make sure you’re comfortable with lifts before using them. If not used properly, the lifts can be very dangerous.

Rules for Snowboarding in WV are similar. When hitting the WV Ski Slopes for some WV Snowboarding, make sure to read all the signs posted in the terrain park carefully, be aware of changing conditions, familiarize the park before attempting any tricks, do not stop or stand on features or in areas where fellow boarders will be landing, use a spotter when attempting tricks, and never attempt to perform any trick or feature that is beyond your level of ability. If you are unsure of something, the Snowshoe Mountain Resort staff is always there to answer your questions.
