The former CEO of NIC, Inc., Jeffery Scott Fraser now splits his time between living in Wyoming and Alaska. In his free time, Jeffery S. Fraser enjoys snowboarding.
When out on the mountain, showing the proper etiquette will not only help you have a good time, but it will prevent your lack of experience from ruining someone else’s trip. Follow these three tips to remain courteous and ensure a pleasant time for all involved.
1. Slow Down in Crowded Areas - When entering a crowded area, watch your speed and your surroundings to help prevent an accident. These areas will have snowboarders of all skill levels, so go slow and be prepared for a beginner to make an unexpected move into your path.
2. Right of Way - When riding down a mountain, anybody in front of you has the right of way. Regardless of what they are doing, it is your responsibility to keep your distance and avoid a collision, as boarders in front of you cannot see you coming up behind them.
3. Lift Traffic - Once you reach the top of the lift, make it your immediate priority to move out of the way and give the next group coming up plenty of room for an easy dismount.
