Mammoth works hard to provide the best experience possible. With hazards and natural/man-made obstacles existing on the trails, be cautious and use common sense. Follow these rules and tips to ensure maximum safety and enjoyment on the hill.
1. Safeguard yourself by wearing gloves and protective clothing. Helmets are required at all times. Temperatures can vary radically with altitude change. Use sunscreen - the sun is more intense at high altitudes.
2. Stay in control so you are able to avoid other trail users.
3. Ride trails that suit your ability level.
4. Uphill traffic has the right of way on a two-way trail.
5. On downhill trails, the rider in front has the right of way.
6. Be courteous to other riders and move out of the way when it is safe to do so.
7. On-hill signage exists for your safety. Read and obey all trail signs paying close attention to the trail rating level.
8. Do not stop in the middle of a trail or where you cannot be seen from above.
9. Do not shortcut trails; please tread lightly. Bike park passes will be revoked for riding off-trail.
10. Start out easy. Your body can fatigue more quickly at higher elevations.
11. Staying hydrated is key to your comfort and safety - drink plenty of fluids.
12. Watch out for hikers and motor vehicles.
13. Pets are not allowed on bike trails (leashed pets allowed only on the gondola and hiking rails).
14. Seek shelter during thunderstorms. Stay off ridge tops and away from tall trees, lift towers, powerline poles, signposts and large rock outcroppings.
15. Riding with a partner is strongly encouraged.
