At Ski Butternut PIED PIPER - NUTHATCH and CRUISER are all SLOW ZONES. Go Fast - Lose Pass! Think SAFETY First!
We have chosen three of our easiest (green-circle) trails as our SLOW ZONES. These designated slopes are trails where fast or reckless skiing and snowboarding will not be tolerated! Any guest witnessed skiing/riding too fast, or out of control, in these areas by Host, Ski Patrol, a member of the Management Team, could lose their lift ticket. You may be issued a warning the first time if you are lucky. We have marked and set aside Pied Piper, Nuthatch and Cruiser as slow zones, so beginner and newly skilled sliders can practice their turns and enjoy the day without having to worry about faster, more experienced skiers darting past them at high speed. We ask that all guests follow the ski area's rules and that they know and follow the Skier Responsibility Code:
Your Responsibility Code:
Skiing can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas, you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross-country and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled or other skiers.
Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others, and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.
Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers the responsibility we all share, to assure everyone has a great skiing experience.
Your Responsibility Code:
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead of you have the right of way. it is your responsibility to avoid them.
- You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
- Whenever starting downhill or merging onto a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
- Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
