Make Your Ski Areas Safer
Take a moment to read What You Can Do To Help Improve Ski Resort Safety. Write to, call or meet with resort managers at the resorts you patronize. Tell them: Your family's safety is an important consideration in your choice of resorts Safety is a responsibility shared by the resort and its patrons--the resort’s design, operation and use of standardized accident prevention / injury reduction methods and materials have a substantial impact on your safety. Their documented safety practices and fatality / serious injury statistics should be fully available to patrons to consider safety in their choice of resorts. Review resort grades on the California Ski Area Family Safety Report Card and ask the resort what it is doing to address the deficiencies documented in the 2016 Mountain Resort Safety Survey. Ask to see their Safety Plan. Tell them it should be posted on their website and readily available to patrons and the public on request.* Confirm resort compliance with each of the 16 provisions of the Resort Safety Responsibility Code and if not, why not. Report to the resort management any safety issues or concerns you have and request a written response. Visit, call or write the governor, your assemblyperson and senator. Tell them you want public policy that: (1) better balances public safety with legal liability protection for the resorts; (2) makes resort specific safety information and statistics available to the public for consideration in their choice of resorts. Spread the Word: Safety is not by accident!
