Killington Celebrates National Safety Awareness Month
Vermont’s largest resort offers activities and deals promoting slope safety awareness
KILLINGTON, Vt. (January 13, 2016) – During the month of January, Vermont’s Killington Resort celebrates National Safety Awareness Month as designated by the National Ski Areas Association, educating skiers and snowboarders about slope safety awareness with special promotions and interactive displays.
The Beast of the East supports and promotes Your Responsibility Code– the seven point code that outlines responsible slope behavior for skiers and riders, and Smart Style – a five-point safety message about the use and progression of freestyle terrain.
All month, Mountain Ambassadors, ski patrollers and Snow Sports School coaches will be handing out Know the Code stickers and cards, Smart Style stickers and a Freestyle Terrain User’s Guide to guests. Plus, some Mountain Ambassadors will wear bright yellow jackets displaying important safety awareness messages based on Your Responsibility Code and giving away prizes to guests who successfully answer safety awareness quizzes.
