Putting One Foot in Front of the Other

December 5, 2007

Hi Gloggers
Thursday is upon us and time for more Thursday thoughts from the Davies’s.
Lets talk a little about winter safety, something that should be on all our minds over the next couple of months.

There is the Mountain Safety, better known as the responsibility code. This is 7 golden rules that all ski areas abide by. (the first 2 mean quite a lot to me right now…..!)

  • 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.
  • There are also other ways to stay safe. Like using the sidewalks when possible, it is always tempting to walk on the road, it always seems less slippy. But remember cars use the roads…! And it’s pretty hard to stop an out-of-control car sliding…! Plus with the dark nights, pedestrians can be hard to see.POP QUIZ: Name 4 Gould students in this photo, taken before they came to Gould…??

    I challenge my fellow gloggers to add a safety note to all their posts. Just to show you in Glog-land how much we care.

    Happy Thursday

    Chris & Helen
