National Safety Month

The month of January is dedicated to promoting skier and rider responsibility and mountain safety. Resorts across the country participate every year to educate skiers and snowboarders about being safe and using common sense on the slopes.

To help spread the word, consider hosting a safety-focused event or series of events at your ski area this season. Need inspiration? Check out how the ski areas of California and Nevada collectively created and celebrated Ski California's Ski Safety Day for the past three years.

Each resort supports Safety Month in different ways by creating new and exciting initiatives on their mountain. Share your event with us, and participate in National Safety Month contests including a poster drawing contest and photo contest. Participating resorts can also apply for the NSAA Safety Awards.


By encouraging awareness and responsibility across these topics, ski areas and guests can help to make sure everyone has a safer day on the slopes:
