What steps are Snowbasin employees taking with regards to health and wellness?
The Snowbasin Courtesy Code is designed to maintain the spirit of respect that Snowbasin staff works on each day with its award-winning service standard. We recognize that the passion of our guests can sometimes go too far, and unfortunately, conflicts or errors in judgment take place. It is never acceptable at Snowbasin to break the rules and hurt others through our actions.
This includes verbal abuse that has become all too prevalent in today’s society. At Snowbasin, respect and kindness are in our DNA. It’s what we work towards and train on each day. While we commit to delivering exceptional kindness and service, we ask our guests to do the same. We want all guests and employees to come to Snowbasin and enjoy the resort and not worry about someone else’s actions causing them harm. Below are some things that can result in expulsion from the resort and loss of skiing privileges:
Snowbasin Resort reserves the right to revoke guest privileges for violations of the Courtesy Code. Please remember that we are both stewards of the Forest Service land we contractually manage with them and a private business. It is our responsibility to create an equitable, safe and respectful place to recreate and enjoy these precious mountains.
