Like most things in life skiing & snowboarding have rules to play by. There are three codes that help us play safely in the mountain environment. For alpine skiing and snowboarding there is the Alpine Responsibility Code, Nordic skiing has the Cross Country Code and Big White Ski Resort supports the Burton Smart Style Program in the Terrain Park. All of the codes exist to make the mountain environment a safe and fun place for all to enjoy.
