The Aspen Pledge

ASPEN PLEDGE

I PLEDGE TO EXPLORE ASPEN RESPONSIBLY. 

I WILL COME PREPARED FOR ANY EXPERIENCE. 

I WILL FEED MY SENSE OF ADVENTURE, BUT NEVER FEED THE WILDLIFE. 

I WILL FOREGO HIGH FASHION, AND DRESS FOR HIGH ELEVATIONS. 

I WILL VENTURE INTO THE GREAT UNKNOWN WHILE STAYING ON THE KNOWN TRAILS. 

I WILL CARVE THE SNOW AND NOT THE TREES. 

I WILL FIND MYSELF WITHOUT MOUNTAIN RESCUE HAVING TO FIND ME. 

I WILL HIT THE SLOPES WITHOUT HITTING THE OTHER SKIERS. 

I WILL TAKE AWESOME SELFIES, WITHOUT ENDANGERING MYSELF-IE.

I WILL CAMP ONLY WHERE PERMITTED AND SECURE A PERMIT WHEN NECESSARY. 

I WILL REMAIN IN ONE PIECE, BY LEAVING THE WILDLIFE IN PEACE. 

I WILL ADHERE TO SKI PATROL CLOSURES AS I WANDER HERE AND THERE. 

I WILL NOT SKI IN JEANS.
