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 - Are aware of their surroundings and conditions.
FOCUSED - Are not distracted or preoccupied when on the mountain.
EDUCATED - Understand their abilities, responsibilities, and associated risks.
RESPECTFUL - Recreate together in a friendly manner without interfering with one another
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.

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