This week, January 14 – 22, HoliMont will be recognizing National Safety Awareness Week, which is an annual event highlighting resort safety education efforts while increasing slope safety. Resorts throughout the country are encouraged to develop new and creative ways to involve employees and guests in activities for safety week.
“At HoliMont we take safety very seriously and our goal is to always provide a safe and secure environment for HoliMont Members and guests,” said Justin Latimer, HoliMont Safety Manager.  “Historically we have a very good safety record and we’ve enjoyed many accident-free days of skiing and snowboarding so naturally we are on-board with promoting National Safety Awareness Week.”
This year the HoliMont Ski School will be holding a coloring contest for its younger patrons, which will emphasize the importance of skiing and riding safely and following the Skier Responsibility Code.  The HoliMont Safety Patrol will be meeting with Members and guests to talk with them about safety procedures that they should know and abide by.  And as always the Terrain Park Crew will be promoting the Smart Style initiative, which teaches skiers and riders all about proper terrain park etiquette.
Skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled skiers. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience.
  1. Always stay in control.
  2. People ahead of you have the right of way.
  3. Stop in a safe place for you and others.
  4. Whenever starting downhill or merging, look uphill and yield.
  5. Use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  6. Observe signs and warnings, and keep off closed trails.
  7. Know how to use the lifts safely.
Be safety conscious and
KNOW THE CODE. IT’S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
This is a partial list.
