In Case of Injury
If someone is injured, remain calm, cross skis, or place a snowboard securely in the snow above the accident.
Call Ski Patrol:
The patrol member will ask for the number of the phone from which you are calling and your location, age, sex/gender, event, and about the resources available to you.
You must be in control and avoid the person downhill of your path.
A skier involved in a collision with another skier that results in an injury shall not leave the vicinity of the collision before giving the skier’s name and current address to an employee of the ski area operator or a member of a paid or voluntary ski patrol. This does not prohibit a skier from leaving the scene of a collision to secure first aid for a person who is injured in the collision. If a skier leaves the scene of a collision to secure first aid, the skier shall leave the skier’s name and current address as required after securing the first aid.
Certain areas and trails at Nordic Valley are designated as SLOW ZONES. Please observe these posted slow areas by maintaining a speed no faster than the general flow of traffic. Space and speed are especially important in these areas. Fast and aggressive skiing will not be tolerated.
Various informational and caution signage is located throughout the ski area. Please read, understand and follow all rules and related signage. Skiers and riders should be advised that a green circle, blue square, or black diamond trail at Nordic Valley is not necessarily the same as a green circle, blue square or black diamond trail at other resorts. The system is a relative rating of trails at each resort and does not compare trail difficulty between resorts. Skiers and riders should begin with the easiest terrain and then move up in difficulty as their ability permits. Some terrain may be closed due to potential hazards. Please respect our signage and closures.
Nordic Valley discourages the use of electronic devices (cell phones, music players or earphones) while skiing/riding, or loading or unloading lifts.
Nordic Valley highly recommends wearing helmets for skiing and riding. Skiers and snowboarders are encouraged to educate themselves on the benefits and limitations of helmet usage. The primary safety consideration and obligation under Your Responsibility Code is to ski and ride in a controlled and responsible manner. Nordic Valley supports the National Ski Areas Association’s Lids on Kids initiative, which focuses on educating parents and children about the importance of helmet usage.
Grooming equipment, snowmobiles, snowmaking equipment, and other vehicles may be encountered at any time.
While rare, both inside and outside of the posted ski area boundary, avalanches may occur at any time without warning. Become educated on how to reduce the risks through your own education, actions, and awareness
It is important to be mindful of your ability level and not take on anything too challenging. Our three parks are designed for skiers and riders to progressively learn how to handle different features.

Some resorts designate features as small, medium and large. Be aware these ratings are determined by size, not the degree of difficulty, and are relative only to that resort. Freestyle Terrain use, like all skiing and riding, exposes the user to the risk of serious injury. Prior to using freestyle terrain, it is the user’s responsibility to become familiar with all instructions and posted warnings and to follow Your Responsibility Code and PARK SMART.
