Code of Conduct and Club Rules

AUSBLICK SKI AREA

Code of Conduct and Club Rules ed.2016

LODGE and TABLE USE:

The chalet is for everyone’s use and enjoyment. We ask that all Members cooperate and clean up after themselves. (This includes tables, chairs and carpeted areas. HANDSWEEPERS are available.) Observe proper disposal of garbage and recycling materials in appropriate bins around chalet.

TABLES:

No more than (2) tables may be pulled together by one group ON FRIDAY NIGHT, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY without prior consent of management. Please be considerate of fellow members and share tables and chairs especially when the lodge is busy. If all the tables seem to be in use, ask to join another family and share the experience.

Table space is valuable; therefore, they should not be used for the sole purpose of just storing personal items, food and beverages!

Sitting on any table top is not allowed at any time. This causes permanent damage to the table.

For safety reasons, all walk ways must be kept clear! Please do not store ski bags, boots, clothing, coolers, etc in any walk way. Storage Cubicles are provided near the restrooms and should be used for all storage needs.

NO EQUIPMENT IN LODGE:

All skis, poles, and snowboards are forbidden in the lodge area with the exception of the basement locker area and the stairwell leading thereto.

APPROPRIATE LODGE BEHAVIOR:

Running and loud play activities are NEVER permitted in the chalet. No play activities are allowed in/near the storage cubicles, coat room, restrooms, kitchen, basement stairwell, or basement locker room at any time. Parents must monitor their children at all times and ensure that their activities in the lodge are appropriate. Any child/person behaving in an unsafe or disruptive manner will be approached by Ausblick Staff and told to cease the behavior. We appreciate your cooperation.

KITCHEN:

All members should bring their own adequate supply of personal cooking/serving items with them to use. Paper and plastic products are only supplied as a convenience in case something is forgotten.
If you use a utensil/glass/plate/serving dish etc. please wash, dry and put the item back where it was found. DIRTY DISHES ARE NEVER TO BE LEFT IN THE SINK AT ANY TIME.
All working/cutting/preparing surfaces must be wiped clean.

GRILL:

Before starting to grill, be sure to turn on the exhaust fan. Scrape grill grates before AND after cooking. Please ask the office staff for assistance if you are unfamiliar with the use of the grill/exhaust fan or any other item in kitchen.

Please bring any unusual or potentially hazardous situation to the attention of hill staff immediately.

FIREPLACE:

The fireplace is to be tended ONLY by AUSBLICK STAFF! (Smoke can back up into the building if not properly tended and only staff is trained in proper procedures.) Members are not allowed to start a fire or add wood to the fireplace at any time. Your cooperation is appreciated.

GAS FIREPLACE IN FLEX ROOM:

Will be lit upon request and tended only by staff.

GUEST POLICY:

Members hosting a guest MUST be present with the guest and ensure that the guest has executed a liability waiver using our online EZWaiver system . The host member must remain on the premise with their guest (s) at all times.

Any Guest under the age of (18) eighteen, must have his or her liability waiver executed by a Parent or Guardian on their behalf.

Members may have no more than (6) Six guests at the club at any one time without the prior consent of the area manager. THIS INCLUDES SKIING AND NON-SKIING GUESTS.

Guest Passes must be displayed at all times.

Guests that engage in any prohibited activity will have their guest pass revoked immediately. Future guest privileges will be suspended for the remainder of the current skiing season. Ausblick reserves the right to refuse guest privileges to anyone indefinitely at its sole discretion.

Guest Passes may not be used during WJR race events or Special Parties being held at Ausblick.

The maximum number of times a person can be a guest at Ausblick in a single season is (5) five.

Any member found not registering a guest, who is using the hill, will be charged triple the guest fee. If there are additional offenses wherein the member has failed to register a guest during the tenure of his/her membership with Ausblick, additional penalties will be enforced at the discretion of the Board which may include suspension or termination of the member’s membership.

No inactive member may host any guests.

Any member that is aware of an unregistered guest on the Ausblick premises is expected to IMMEDIATELY bring this to the attention of area management. Failure to do so could be viewed as condoning such actions.

SAFETY:

All members and guests are required to wear their ID passes so that they are visible while skiing or snowboarding.

Pedestrian Traffic is strongly discouraged on the groomed snow surfaces. Anyone choosing to be on the ski hill without skis/snowboard, shall keep to the side of the trail or slope at all times.

Courtesy and respect for the safety of others is expected and required at all times. All members and guests are expected to know, understand and follow “Your Responsibility Code.”

Members are responsible for the actions of their family members and guests alike. Parents are expected to educate their children and assure they understand their responsibilities and follow “Your Responsibility Code.” Copies of “Your Responsibility Code” are available from management.

Children under Twelve (12) must be accompanied at all times by a member Sixteen (16) or older, who will be responsible for their actions. In the event of injury to a minor, an adult parent or guardian must be available to authorize medical treatment. In the absence thereof, area management will authorize appropriate treatment to assure the safety and comfort of the injured party.

Toboggans or snowmobiles (other than staff), saucers, sleds, tubes or other downhill conveyances other than skis/snowboards are not permitted at any time.

Please report all accidents IMMEDIATELY to the Ski Patrol or lift attendants.

High speed skiing/snowboarding is prohibited on the Bunny’s Run at all times. Reckless skiing and snowboarding and schussing (going straight downhill or “tucking”) are prohibited on any run at all times.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY CODE

  • 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 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.

TERRAIN FEATURE USE – KNOW THE CODE – IT’S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

When using the Terrain Features (ramps, rails, bumps, etc.) additional responsibilities are expected. These include but are not limited to the following:

LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP

Scope around the jumps first, not over them. Know your landings are clear and clear yourself out of the landing area. Always have a spotter to watch your landing area.

EASY STYLES IT

Start small and work your way up. (Inverted aerials not allowed – EVER).

RESPECT GETS RESPECT

From the lift line through the park.

SNOW BOARD POLICY:

Snowboarders must have one foot free and unbuckled before entering the lift line.

Snowboarders must buckle up clear of the chair unloading area at the top of the hill.

Snowboarders are encouraged to ride with only two on the chair (not triple) unless they are highly experienced riders, capable of unloading without incident.

Snowboarders must have their board tethered with a safety strap prior to lift use or starting downhill.

CHAIRLIFT USE:

If there are any questions over the use of the chairlift, please ask the attendant for instructions.

Intentional swinging or bouncing of the chairs is prohibited.

Please observe signs on the towers, such as “Keep Ski Tips UP”.

Each chair has restraint bars and they must be used at all times while riding the lift.

Unaccompanied children must be tall enough to load and unload the chairlift without assistance. Any child not meeting this requirement must be accompanied by a parent, family member 16 years or older or other responsible individual capable of looking out for the safety and well being of that child. Any child that demonstrates an inability to consistently ride the chairlift safely will be asked to refrain from riding without assistance until the time they are able to demonstrate their ability to do so safely.

SANCTIONS:

Members and Guests who do not comply with these rules or who repeatedly engage in unsafe, discourteous or disrespectful activities may be disciplined as follows:

FIRST OFFENSE: a formal warning will be given by a member of the Staff or Ski Patrol. This warning will be recorded in writing with the area management and the Board of Directors.

SECOND OFFENSE: a second offense may include an immediate 7 day suspension of hill privileges (with right of appeal to the Board of Directors). In the event of suspension, a formal conference will be required with area management to discuss the offense.

THIRD OFFENSE: a third offense may result in the immediate termination of hill membership by the Board of Directors with a right to appeal to the Board of Directors within 30 days of termination. In the event of membership loss, no return of unused dues will be made and the family or individual in question will not be eligible for application for membership again for a period of 3 years.

LODGE RENTAL:

The Ausblick lodge is available for rental by Members and their Guests during the non-ski season. This can be accomplished by talking to the General Manager. Rentals are limited and at the sole discretion of Ausblick management.
