Snow Responsibility Code:

Stay Visible:

  • Only stop where you can be seen from above
  • Always look uphill before moving again
  • Only stop on the edge of trails or beside fixed objects

Slow Down:

  • Limit your speed in busy areas
  • Match your speed to surrounding skiers and riders
  • Be prepared for others to make sudden changes in direction or speed

Give Way:

  • Give way to those downhill
  • Look before you leap
  • Snowboarders: take care turning onto your heel edge

Give Space:

  • Stay 5m from others
  • If less than 5m from others you must slow down
  • The faster you go the more space you must give others

Backcountry Terrain:

The Back Bowls are steep Expert Terrain. As such they have an increase in hazard, including avalanche. The Back Bowls may be closed due to Avalanche Hazard Mitigation or inclement weather as these conditions heighten risk in this terrain. Back Bowls are closed at night and assessed for opening daily.

 

Backcountry Advisory:

If you decide to go skiing or snowboarding in the backcountry you need to carry the right safety equipment. Avalanches happen, so it’s important to choose your terrain wisely. Coronet Peak Back Bowls is managed carefully by Coronet Peak Patrol. When the Back Bowls sign indicates the terrain is "open" you may proceed with caution into this area. Out on the far col you will see a red and an orange Ski Area Boundary Sign on the rock which indicates the limits of Coronet Peak ski area and the back-bowls. If you venture past this sign the terrain is highly hazardous, prone to avalanches with cliffs and ice.
It is good practice to provide a contact person with details of your backcountry trip. You can also pop into our Ski Patrol office at any time during opening hours to check on local conditions and advise patrol of your intentions. Please be aware that our Ski Patrol do not patrol outside the Ski Area Boundary and only venture here in the case of a known emergency. You need to be well prepared and self-sufficient with all the necessary safety equipment and the knowledge to use it.
Please visit the Mountain Safety website for details on what is required to ensure a safe backcountry adventure.
