CONFINE SKIING AT RACE SPEEDS TO THE RACE COURSE – Please remember this is a public ski area filled with skiers. “Buzzing skiers,” fast or reckless skiing outside the race course can result in loss of skiing privileges at Whitetail.

SAY THANK YOU TO A VOLUNTEER – None of us would be out here without parents, friends, coaches, and mountain staff giving their time. Rude or obnoxious comments or behavior can ensure that person never gives time again, or worse. A positive comment can go much farther, ensuring that we will continue to have venues and support for ski racing. Do your part and say thank you to someone that’s working at the event and someone that’s working at the mountain.
