Ski and Snowboard Safety
Ski and snowboard safety is a big part of every lesson. Your instructor will teach you key pointers on to how to enjoy a safer day on the slopes, including lessons on how to ride the lifts safely. In addition to instructors, National Ski Patrol members also focus on mountain safety. They patrol the slopes making sure that skiers and riders stay in control. Patrollers are easy to find because they all wear red parkas with a white cross on the back. Ski patrol helps anyone who may be having difficulty or if an incident occurs. Many patrollers are leaders in their communities including firemen, emergency medical technicians, and law enforcement agents who are trained to perform varying degrees of medical assistance if needed. Look for the folks wearing the red parkas with the white cross! Safety on the slopes is everyone's responsibility!
