Tubing Safety

WARNING to Snow Tubers:

Under Wisconsin law (Wisconsin Skier Safety Act, 2012), each individual engaged in tubing has a duty to do all of the following:

  • Obey all posted warnings and signs.
  • Keep out of closed areas.
  • Know the range of his or her ability and engage in tubing within that ability.
  • Assess the difficulty of the terrain that is open to tubing.
  • Maintain control of the speed and direction of the tube or other device that is being used.
  • Comply with any posted limits imposed on the number of passengers or on the amount of weight of the tube or other device while it is being ridden.
  • Be able to safely board, ride, and deboard any lift serving an area open to tubing.
  • Board and deboard a lift only at designated sites.
  • Yield to other individuals engaged in tubing who are ahead or who are down the slope.
  • Look uphill and yield to oncoming tubes before leaving the bottom of the hill at the end of a run.

Helmets and Protective Gear

We highly recommend wearing a helmet, even for tubing. The use of helmets or wrist guards may reduce the risk of injury. Wrist injuries are not uncommon for snowboarders and wrist guards can help prevent injuries. Whether or not to wear a helmet or other safety devices is a personal choice. Make sure to check into all available options. Here are some sources of additional safety information:

Out of safety concerns for our guests, employees and resort property, Cascade Mountain prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, by the general public without prior written authorization. This extends to any drones launched outside of resort boundaries. Please call 608-742-5588 if you have any questions or seek authorization to operate drones. Any violation of this policy may involve suspension of your skiing or snowboarding privileges, or the revocation of your season pass, as well as confiscation of drone equipment, and may be subject to damages as well as regulatory fines.

 

Electronic Devices

Cascade Mountain discourages the use of electronic devices that utilize headphones/earphones while skiing, riding and loading or unloading lifts.

 

Hazards

All fencing, poles, signage and other marking devices are in place to inform you of potential hazards or obstacles. The markers will not protect you from injury, and it is your responsibility to stay away from marked areas.
