Safety Week Jan 16-24 {Liberty Mountain Resort, Carroll Valley, PA}

Safety Week has officially begun at Liberty. It's a week that highlights slope safety and the importance of safety awareness while skiing and snowboarding. Every season, Safety Week is celebrated not only at our resort, but resorts across the nation as part of NSAA's National Safety Awareness Week. This nation-wide effort is filled with education/learning opportunities, fun activities, helmet giveaways, and more for our guests. Click here for all our event details.

Here are some highlights from the first day of Safety Week at Liberty...

Mountain Safety, Ski Patrol and Ski & Snowboard Instructors all helped out by manning the Safety Booth. They talked with guests about slope safety and the Responsibility Code and awarded extra lift time to those who were well versed in safety tips and the code.
One hour complimentary skiing/boarding added to lift tickets...
Rick the Rescue Dummy made an appearance! Rick is a reminder to guests of the consequences that can occur because of unsafe skiing and boarding. He gets quite a reaction from guests every year.

"Play It Safe" - a new safety initiative for Liberty, Roundtop and Whitetail.
Powder Pig!

As Safety Week continues, here are some safety tips to remember while skiing and boarding:

When skiing and boarding (a sampling from our Responsibility Code and Smart Style safety rules)...

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. Observe signs and warnings, and keep off closed trails.
6. Do not ski/ride slopes too difficult for your ability.
7. Look before you leap!
8. Respect gets respect. From the lift line through the park.
9. Easy style it. Start small and work your way up.

Play it safe out there! Happy Safety Week!
