A recent addition has been made to the last bullet of the Assumption of Risks Section of the CWSAA website page for Safety & Risk Awareness:
Be Safe – Expect the Unexpected
Always use caution and be prepared to avoid man-made or natural obstacles both marked and unmarked. Trail and slope conditions vary constantly with weather changes and skier/rider use. Be aware of changing conditions, natural or man-made. Obey all advisory signs. Please know and adhere to the Alpine Responsibility Code.
