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:
Cascade Mountain discourages the use of electronic devices that utilize headphones/ earphones while skiing, riding and loading or unloading lifts.
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.
Braking or retention mechanisms are required on skis; leashes are required on snowboards.
CASCADE MOUNTAIN RECKLESS SKIER POLICY
The Cascade Mountain Ski Patrol and Cascade staff have authority to confiscate the lift pass of any reckless skier. A confiscation decision rests on the sole judgment of such authorized person. Options include, but are not limited to, suspension or revocation of Cascade privileges for any period of time, from minutes to days to entire seasons. Disposition is at the absolute and sole discretion of Cascade management, and is not appealable in any court or under any legal theory. A reckless skier can be approached at any time, and at any location within Cascade’s area of operation, which includes the parking lots. For criminal activity, Cascade Mountain reserves the right to prosecute. Depending upon the circumstances, Cascade Ski Patrol or Cascade staff may issue a verbal warning of reckless conduct instead of confiscating the lift pass.
