CAMP FORTUNE SAFETY

Our goal is a safe & fun day for all.

Safety for Skiers and Snowboarders

  1. If you are a beginner, take a ski lesson or a snowboard lesson.
  2. Wear a helmet. Helmets are mandatory in the Terrain Park.
  3. Remain in control of your speed and direction. Make sure you can stop and avoid any person or obstacle.
  4. Yield the right of way to the people downhill of you and choose a course that ensures their safety.
  5. Stop on a trail only if you are visible from above and if you are not obstructing the trail.
  6. Yield the right of way to persons uphill when entering a trail and at intersections.
  7. If you are involved in or witness an accident, remain at the scene and identify yourself to a first-aider.
  8. Don’t exert yourself. Fatigue causes loss of concentration, weakened muscles and injuries.
  9. Use and wear at all times a proper device to prevent runaway equipment.
  10. Keep off of the lifts and out of the trails if your ability is impaired through use of alcohol or drugs.
  11. Obey all signs and warnings and never venture off the trails or onto a closed trail.

SKI PATROL

The Camp Fortune Ski Patrol is made up of a close-knit team of 80 members who can be recognized by our distinctive red and white.  We open and close the hills, promote safety and respond when accidents do happen.  It is fun and rewarding.  We are all extensively trained volunteers, who love to ski or ride as much as you do.

To find out more, or if are curious to join us, visit the national CSPS site (www.skipatrol.ca), talk to us on the hill, contact us (patrol@campfortune.com), or better yet Spend a Day with Us to learn about what we do.
