Blue Mountain Resort is kicking off January promoting safety on the slopes! We will be highlighting aspects of the Skiers Safety Responsibly Code through promotions and interactions with Ski Patrollers.
The push of Safety Week is to create awareness that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. This week of safety activities and education is part of Blue Mountain’s participation in the National Ski Area Associations efforts to educate skiers and snowboarders about being safe on the slopes.
January 6th – 12th & 17th – 19th guests can participate in the following Safety Week Programs:
The Safety Chair Simulator is back in the Valley for more action! Located next to the Valley First Aid building.
Visit the moving Safety Chair Simulator to learn chair lift loading, riding and unloading safety. Plus, stop by the Blue Crew booth for some safety tips and Blue Mountain Swag!
Bars for Bars
Safe guests get sweet rewards! Anyone spotted riding the lift with their safety bar down will be given a sweet treat from our Mountain Hosts & Ski Patrol!
Times are Monday-Friday 4pm-close and Weekends 10am-2pm.
Hunting for Safety! Open to school groups Monday 1/6 to Friday 1/10 6-9pm.
