Saturday January 21, 2017
Max Safety Day is Saturday, January 21st. 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’s 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
