Should you, or someone you are skiing or riding with become injured, send a responsible person to get help. Do not move after a fall unless you are certain you are not injured. A CSP member will be happy to assess you and tend to any injuries you may have – that is what they are trained to do, so do not hesitate to seek assistance.
Be Aware, Ski with Care, Wear a Helmet, and Know the Code.
