January is NSAA Safety Month. We will be using January to kick off a new initiative at Snowbasin Resort -SAFERmtn Project. We invite the community to get involved with keeping our mountain safe. Throughout the month of January we will be posting safety facts on social media to remind everyone 'how to be safe' on the mountain. Plus on the weekends we will have 2 safety booths, where you can talk with our employees about Terrain Park Safety, Snow Safety, Sun Protection, Chairlift safety and more. The bottom booth will have a spinning wheel encompassing all these topics. Spin the wheel for a chance to talk about a mountain safety topic and win fun prizes. The top booth will be hosted by our awesome Ski Patrol. If you prove you 'Know the Code' by reciting it to them, you have a chance to enter the raffle or get another prize. If you enter the raffle, we will draw winners on Sunday afternoon and contact you if you win. The last weekend of the month will be focused on snow safety and avalanches with lots of avalanche safety specific programs.
