The event promotes and encourages responsible practices and etiquette designed to make skiers and snowboarders more aware of safety on the slopes. Essential to courteous and safe sharing of the mountain is the Responsibility Code – seven simple rules which if followed can provide an extra margin of safety on the slopes.
Activities at the Safety Fair include:
- Know the Code Games and raffle
- Beginner chair demonstration
- L.I.F.T.S.T.A.R.S Education
- Avy Dog meet and greet
- Damaged Helmet education and recycling
- Avalanche Rescue Training and awareness
- Recco Demonstration
- Music and prizes
Representatives from Meadows Pro Patrol will be on hand to discuss safety issues and introduce guests to the safety search and rescue dogs. A “beacon run” is planned to allow those who own avalanche beacons to test them and practice search techniques. A special emphasis this year is educating young guests about how to board, ride and unload chairlifts safely (the L.I.F.T.S.T.A.R.S Program).
