Kids on Lifts

Kids on Lifts

To make your visit as safe and enjoyable as possible, we strongly suggest that you take the time to review the following 11 Kids-on-Lifts Safety Tips with your children before they take their first chairlift ride.
1. Your small child (defined as a child shorter than 51" to the top of their helmet) may be assisted by the lift operator unless instructed differently by their parent our guardian.
2. A small child should not ride a chairlift alone.
3. A small child should sit to the far outside of the chair next to the armrest for added security.  
4. A small child not seated next to an armrest should be accompanied by an adult.
5. When riding a fixed grip chairlift with your child (chairlifts that do not automatically slow down while loading and unloading), position them on the side next to the lift operator.
6. If your child uses ski poles they should take the straps off of their wrists and hold them in the hand away from the outside of the chair while loading.
7. Once they are ready they should quickly move from the Wait Here signs to the Load Board. They should remember "Boots on the board".
8. As the chair approaches the load board your child should turn to the outside of the chair, reach back with their free hand, and grab on to the vertical pole. They should remember "Turn, reach, and grab."
9.Your child should hold on to the vertical bar next to them all the way up the chairlift. They should remember "Hold on".
10. Your child should sit all the way back in the chair with their back touching the back of the chair. They should remember "Sit all the way back".
11.Your child should sit still until they reach the Unload Here signs. They should remember to "Sit still".
 
Our qualified lift staff is there to assist with loading your small children as well as all guests.  Don't hesitate to ask them for any further assistance, if needed.
Kids on Lifts Safety Tips
Sun Safe on the Slopes

Sun Safe on the Slopes

To ensure your kids have a safe and fun day on the slopes, remember these tips to protect you from the sun and its radiation.
1. Wear pants, long sleeves, and gloves even on warm days.
2. Put on a hat or helmet that covers your ears.
3. Wear 100% UV protection goggles or sunglasses.
4. Apply generous amounts of SPF 30+ sunscreen on exposed skin every two hours.
5. It’s not the heat of the sun that causes skin damage but radiation from the sun.

What to look for in sunblock:
  • SPF 30 or higher
  • Broad Spectrum
  • Zinc Oxide, titanium dioxide or both


Eye Protection


Eye health is important for everyone. Skiers and snowboarders spend long hours on the snow which can increase your risk of eye health issues. Fortunately, wearing good quality sunglasses and goggles, that offer UV-protection are a great way to significantly reduce these risks. Below are several resources you can check out to learn more about the importance of wearing eye protection when you're enjoying the slopes.
