BOISE, ID — Skiers and snowboarders across the state headed to the slopes on Saturday. Larry Buttel, a mountain host for Bogus Basin says it's important for everyone to keep themselves safe. Buttel and other ski patrol mountain hosts were out the Skier and Snowboarder responsibility code.

"We've got a lot of heavy powder on the snow out on the slope, and that's a challenge for the patrol to keep up with," said Buttel.

The responsibility code includes staying in control, obeying signs, looking out for other skiers, knowing how to ride the chairs, and always following posted signs and warnings about changing conditions.

"Bogus has a large number of beginner skiers, both small children, and adults and for us to make this a safer ski area, they're going to come back because they feel safe. They know that this is a place that they can learn a life sport that they can carry with them all the way through and pass that down and do it as a family."
