A Wonderful Weekend In The West.

(Vail, Colorado): We love the Alpine Sports and Colorado’s remarkable resorts. It may not be snowing along the front range but the high country is a winter wonderland of snow. January is National Safety Month at ski resorts across America, and our friends at Colorado Ski Country USA member resorts are hosting safety-related programs across the state.

Every year, Colorado’s ski resorts hold safety demonstrations and programming to educate guests about best safety practices and remind skiers and riders, whether they are new to the sport or long-time veterans, that each skier or rider is responsible for ensuring they stay safe on the slopes. January events include ski patrol demonstrations, avalanche safety training, visits with resorts’ highly trained avalanche dogs, and helmet and safety giveaways.

After years of raising awareness about the importance of helmet use, 83 percent of skiers in Colorado wore a helmet during the 2016-17 season. Another key aspect of National Safety Month at Colorado ski resorts is raising awareness about the importance of skiers and snowboarders following the Your Responsibility Code:

Your Responsibility Code

  • Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
