We need your help!

The Peter Inglis Avalanche Education Fund is working with the Telluride Mountain Club to come up with a Code of Ethics for backcountry skiing and snowboarding in the Telluride region (and specifically Bear Creek). We have been working with various avalanche professionals to come up with our first draft, below. We are seeking your feedback - what should be added, deleted, etc. - in order to make this a code that all skiers and snowboarders in our region can follow.
Draft: Tentative Telluride Backcountry Code of Ethics

If you don’t know, don’t go. AND When in doubt, don’t go out.

If you decide to head into the backcountry:
-Beacon, Shovel, Probe, Radio
-Avalanche Airbag Pack (when avalanche hazard and terrain warrant it)
-Always have uphill travel capabilities
-Be cool at the rope drop
-Don’t drop in on other parties, use your radio if you can’t see your line to make sure other skiers aren’t below you.
-If you are skiing/boarding a line, communicate with the parties above you.
-Have an alternate plan for the day in case your line is crowded with other parties.
-Uphill traffic (hikers) on Bear Creek Trail have the right of way. Slow down, be cool.

Continue your education with snow safety courses on a regular basis. Stay in school and never stop learning.
