Not Good News: Man Dies at Devil’s Head

This is just horrible. They don’t mention if he was wearing a helmet or not but it’s a good idea to wear one.

Remember to be safe skiing – follow the rules:

Your Responsibility Code (psia.org)

  • Always stay in control.
  • People ahead of you have the right of way.
  • Stop in a safe place for you and others.
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging, look uphill and yield.
  • Use devices the help prevent runaway equipment (straps on ski poles, leashes on snowboards).
  • Observe signs and warnings and keep off closed trails (which is the state law in most places).
  • Know how to use the lifts safely.
