Snowbasin Resort is proud to create a new safety initiative known as SAFERmtn Team. It's our mountain and our community. A safe mountain takes a team and involves both employees and guests. Join our team and help keep the mountain safe and fun for everyone. Talk to an employee about how you can help! 

We will be rolling out this new initiative in conjunction with NSSA Safety Month.

SAFER is an acronym and easy to remember.

SMART - Make Safety Conscious Decisions. 

ALERT - Be aware of their surroundings and conditions.

FOCUSED -  Don't be distracted or preoccupied when on the mountain. 

EDUCATED -  Understand their abilities, responsibilities, and associated risks. 

RESPECTFUL -  Recreate together in a safe and friendly manner. 

Know the code. It is your responsibility. 
1. Stay in control.
2. People ahead of you have the right away. 
3. Stop in a safe place for you and others.
4. When starting downhill or merging, look uphill and yield. 
5. Use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
6. Observe signs and warnings, keep off closed trails.
7. Know how to use the lifts safely. 

Guests safety is very important to us! Please help us build a SAFER mountain community. Play it Smart, Alert, Focused, Educated and Respectful. 

*Snowbasin has many acres of potential avalanche terrain. Watch for the orange and black Avalanche Area signs and rope lines. Do Not enter a Closed Avalanche Area. To access these areas when they are open, enter only through the open gates. Skiing in CLOSED avalanche areas is AGAINST the LAW and will result in a 30-day pass suspension. Violators may be cited with Class B Misdemeanor charges. All passes will not be reinstated until the skier responsibility class is completed. 


NSAA Safety Month Happenings:


Every weekend we will be offering guests a chance to win cool prizes if they join us on a Safety Quest around the resort. The guests will have to visit all 6 different stations and turn in their card at the end of the day to win the prizes. We have partnered with Smith Optics to giveaway 2 helmets each day as well as Snowbasin Resort prizes that include deluxe tunes, gift cards, ½ off private lesson, ½ lift tickets, a dining discovery for two and more.

The guests who choose to partake on this Safety Quest will explore different aspects of the skier and rider responsibility code around the mountain on the weekends. Guests can pick up the Safety Quest card at the base area booth starting at 8:30 am and have to turn in their card by 3:00 pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, we will offer free cookies and hot cocoa in the morning while we talk about our SAFERmtn Team, where to go for the Safety Quest, Park Smarts, Sun Smarts, and other key safety topics to think about while out on the slopes.

There will be five booths on the mountain will run from 10:30 am – 1:00 pm

Booth 1 is located at the top of Littlecat Express where our Snowbasin staff will be talking about lids on kids and lift safety.

Booth 2 is located at top of Needles Gondola where our Snowbasin Ski Patrol will be talking about on-mountain signage, the code and trail etiquette.

Booth 3 is located at the bottom of Herbert’s where the Snowbasin Ski Patrol will be at the beacon park to help guests do beacon drills and host dog demos at the top of every hour, ie 11 am, 12 pm, and 1 pm

Booth 4 is located at the top of Blue Grouse where our Terrain Parks staff will be talking about our terrain parks and safety in our terrain parks.

Booth 5 is located at the top of the new “Family Zone” where our Snowsports instructors will be talking about skiing and riding in control and who has the right away when on the mountain.

At each booth, the guests will receive a punch on their card and can bring the completed card (6 punches) back down to the base area booth by 3:00 pm. We ask the guests to write legibly so we can notify them if they win.
