There are elements of risk in all forms of skiing and boarding that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce:
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
- You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
- Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
- Always use restraining devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride, and unload safely.
Know the code. It’s your responsibility. This is only a partial list, be safety conscious!
Leaving Area Boundary
From the top of Pebble Creek’s Skyline Chair it is possible to access the vast, challenging backcountry of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Should you choose to venture beyond the patrolled ski area boundary, be prepared to be responsible for yourself. Be aware of changing conditions, hazards and the potential of avalanche. A TRAIL MAP showing the boundaries is available. Please note that the Ski Area Boundary and the U.S.F.S. Permitted Area are indicated on the map.
Pebble Creek assumes no responsibility for the safety and welfare of skiers going beyond the ski area boundary. Areas beyond the boundary are not patrolled or maintained. Avalanche slopes and other natural hazards exist. Pebble Creek will assist in rescues within the U.S.F.S. permitted area only. Rescue in the backcountry, if available, is provided by Bannock or Caribou County Search and Rescue and is often time-consuming and costly.
Do not travel alone. Carry a shovel, avalanche transmitter and other emergency gear.
