Reckless Skiing/Boarding Reckless Skiing/Boarding will not be tolerated at Yawgoo Valley. Reckless Skiing/Boarding can refer to any skier or boarder who is skiing/boarding at excessive speed, who is not paying attention to the skiers/boarders around him/her, who fails to slow down at intersections or fails to adhere to Know The Code and/or Park Smart Rules and endangers other skier/boarders. A first offense for reckless skiing/boarding will result in a verbal warning with the lift ticket or season pass marked and the offender’s name noted. A second offense will result in the loss of the lift ticket or season pass for the day. A third offense will result in the loss of the season pass or offender’s admission to the premises for the remainder of the season. Skiing/Boarding on Closed Terrain At Yawgoo Valley, we rely on Ski Patrol to be sure our trails have sufficient coverage to open for public skiing and boarding. A trail may look ready for skiing and boarding after a small amount of snow has fallen, but in actuality, dangerous terrain may be just under the surface. Also, machinery may be on the trail and a skier/boarder collision with that machinery could result in a dangerous situation. Until Ski Patrol has cleared a trail for opening and dropped all ropes, the trail is closed. Please follow the rules and don’t go down closed trails. A first offense for skiing/riding on closed terrain will result in a verbal warning with the lift ticket or season pass marked and the offender’s name noted. A second offense will result in the loss of the lift ticket or season pass for the day. A third offense will result in the loss of the season pass or offender’s admission to the premises for the remainder of the season.

By purchasing snow tubing tickets I understand there are no refunds. I am aware of the upcoming weather conditions and know that if the tubing park is operational I must either attend or forfeit my purchase; I will not be refunded or credited. I am aware that warmer temperatures can make the chutes softer and the snow tubes move slower. I understand that all participants must be at least 42” and cannot ride with someone else. If I purchase a ticket for someone smaller than 42”, I will forfeit that ticket and will not be refunded. I understand that I will not be refunded if I purchase too many tickets and I may only purchase more tickets in person if they are not sold out. I understand that if I am late or miss my session I will not be refunded and will not be offered another session. If for any reason the park does not open, we will contact you as soon as we can to rebook you for the following weekend in the amount of tickets originally purchased only. We may be able to book you for a session on the current weekend, but there are no guarantees. I understand that I must provide a signed waiver for every participant in order to pick-up my ticket(s).
