MTB Safety

Riding at Snowbird:

A waiver is required. Parent or guardian must sign waiver for minors (younger than 18 years). Snowbird Waiver (pdf)

It is recommended that youth be accompanied by an adult. A number of factors can be taken in consideration for younger riders such as finger reach for the brake levers, finger and forearm fatigue, awareness and self-control while riding in steep exposed terrain. Trail Difficulty ratings are relative to Snowbird terrain only.
