Mountain Safety

Alpine Responsibility Code

Calabogie Peaks is committed to promoting skier and rider safety awareness to ensure the best possible guest experience on the mountain.  We follow industry standard safety guidelines provided by the Ontario Snow Resort’s Association www.skiontario.ca and National Ski Areas Association www.nssa.org that are geared towards all alpine activities allowed on our trails including alpine skiing, snowboarding, telemark skiing, and adaptive skiing.  We recommend staying on terrain that is within your ability level and following the Alpine Responsibility Code, which appears below.

Helmets

We recommend the use of helmets on the slopes. But keep in mind, your behavior has as much or more to do with the safety of the sport than any piece of equipment. The Ontario Snow Resort’s Association www.skiontario.ca offers additional resources for consumers to learn about helmets http://www.skiontario.ca/helmet

Trail Signage

The colored symbols next to the trails are the keys to enjoying your first few days on the slopes. Their shape and color indicate the difficulty of the trail.

Trail Signage
Here’s what they mean:

Green Circle: Easier
Blue Square: More Difficult
Black Diamond: Most Difficult
Double-Black Diamond: Most Difficult, use extra caution
Orange Oval: Freestyle Terrain
