Mountain Safety

While at Boston Mills Brandywine we want everyone to have fun from the most experienced skier to those just learning. We like to live by this creed across our resort. So please abide by some simple rules and have fun!  


  1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects
  2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.
  4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment
  6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
  8. BMBW is not responsible for lost or stolen articles
