Seven Points to Your Responsibility Code

  1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.

This is right from the NSAA website.

Are these weighted?

in other words; if someone is out of control, point 1, does this relieve the uphill skier of their responsibility in point 2?

SR map code has another:

Skiing faster than those around you is too fast! :D 

Is this in direct response to MB taking out that chic snowboarder in the trees?

If so, great. If not, what did YOU do this weekend?

All I have to say is: "bah ha ha ha ha ha"

Jr, yes precisely. Boarder was out of control, all other points are moot IMO. Wheelie and I debated this for half of Friday, all day Saturday and late into Sat evening.

GoBU seems to have left out # 8.

"Don't get in MB's way in the trees!!"

Wasn't like that, I did everything in my power to avoid that crash.  It, at least, made us more aware of skier code.  And no one was injured.  All safe.

I support MB's side of the story

I believe the words "I CANT STOP" were screamed by said snow sports enthusiast as they careened into MB.

Does being out of control over rule being uphill? Honest question.

No snowboarders were harmed in the making of this PSA.

actually, "Help, I cannot stop".  I did my best but it was either her or the trees.  She was softer, and I held her and gently dropped her to the soft snow.   It was a somewhat polite interaction, with a bit of discussion about me being the uphill skier and me letting her know that her erratic movements constituted her being out of control, thus violating rule #1 of the skiers code....that is if those rules are written in weighted order.

Wait a minute. Wait a minute.

The chica was boarding in the trees and did not know how to stop? WTF was she doing in the trees in the first place? Was she just learning how to snowboard? Why was she in the trees?

MB, you make this sound like you were having sex with this girl. "Gently dropped her to the soft snow."   "A somewhat polite interaction." Were you skiing or trying to unwrap a condom?

GoBU, do you remember when there were only 6 rules of skier conduct and they printed them on Napkins with pictures of the codes on the napkins in the base lodges? Do you remember what the picture was for the rule that said "Do not stop where you cannot be seen from above"?

Of you remember that full discussion it was a powder day and the wind limited the lifts to the point that everyone on the hill were in 2 glades down low searching for freshies
Too many people in there shouldnt have been there.
Blame the poor victim.

Not weighted.  Like road ... overtake only when safe.  Probably not a good idea to overtake a drunk driver, but sometimes gotta do what gotta do.  Judgement call.  Almost impossible for downhill to run into uphill, but once side by side, both required to have enough control to avoid other.

Sometimes stars align and unexpected stuff happens.  Inherently dangerous...
