Stick to the Chair

Ski with a Buddy

Ski with a Buddy

Devo Team skis and rides with buddies. On the chair, always first make sure your buddy is ready to pull the bar down before doing so.

On the snow if you fall, let your buddy know you are okay by tapping the top of your helmet. 

Always have a planned meeting place at the bottom of a chair should you break up.  Stick to that plan!
