NSAA Safety Village

Sat, Jan 13 - Sun, Jan 14

Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: Mountain Goat Plaza

Join us in the Safety Village in Mountain Goat Plaza to celebrate NSAA’s Skier Safety Week Saturday, January 13th and Sunday, January 14th from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. 

Arapahoe Basin's Avalanche Rescue Dogs will be in the Safety Village and then have some cake while learning more about skier and rider safety on the mountain. Show us that you "Know the Code" and get a Jr. Ski Patrol Badge! We are running a campaign in conjunction with the National Ski Area Association called “Ride another Day.”  

Complementing the Responsibility Code and it's 7 tenets, #RideAnotherDay promotes 3 actions every skier and rider can take to help keep themselves and those around safer on the slopes. These three actions are:
 
1. Be Ready 
Be ready to slow down or avoid objects or other people at any time. Ski and ride in such a way that you are always able to control yourself regardless of conditions and avoid others and objects you may encounter on the run, groomed or otherwise.
 
2. Stay Alert 
Stay alert to what’s going on around you, especially other skiers and riders. Being aware of those around and changing conditions will help you have a fun and safe day on the hill.
 
3. Plan Ahead
 
Ease up at blind spots, check uphill when merging onto trails, and give other skiers plenty of room when passing. Look out for spots on the run where traffic merges or you can't see what's coming next. If you are unfamiliar with a run, take it easy the first time down it and make note of places where you'll want to slow down, such as cat tracks and rollers. Also, give other skiers and riders lots or room, especially if you are passing them. There's plenty of space out there, so there's no need to crowd each other. 
 
By doing these three things every run, you'll be helping keep the slopes safe and enjoyable, for you and everyone else.
