Max Safety Day is Saturday, January 9th. This is in conjunction with the National Safety Initiative. The object of the initiative is to communicate a strong safety message.  We recognize there are inherent risks to skiing and snowboarding.  It is important to keep these risks in perspective and realize that personal responsibility is key in further reducing the frequency of accidents. Activities throughout the day will focus on safety awareness and the role of Ski Patrol on the mountain.

Know the Code

Portneuf Air Rescue

At 1:00 pm Portneuf Air Rescue will be landing their helicopter on the mountain for guests to see. This exciting addition to Max Safety Day is to remind guests that if help is needed, Portneuf Air Rescue is a very short trip away and can land at various spots on the mountain.
