Mountain Bike Responsibility Code
Mountain biking involves elements of risk that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Please adhere to the responsibility code, and share a safe experience with others.
- Ride in control and within your ability level. You must be able to avoid other people or objects.
- Stay off the lifts and trails if your ability is impaired by drugs, alcohol, or fatigue.
- All riders must wear a helmet. A full face helmet, gloves, and body armour are strongly recommended.
- Inspect your bike or have it checked by a qualified bike mechanic before you ride.
- Be sure to have the physical dexterity, ability, and knowledge to safely load, ride, and unload lifts. Ask the lift attendant for assistance if you need it.
- Be aware of changing conditions on trails and features. Inspect features before use and throughout the day.
- Stay on marked trails. Obey all signs and warnings. Do not cut switchbacks. Keep off closed areas.
- Avoid riders ahead of you. They have the right of way.
- Look uphill and yield to other riders when entering a trail or starting downhill.
- Do not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
- If you are involved in or witness a collision or accident, you must identify yourself to the Bike Patrol.
