Killington Resort receives 2023 NSAA Safety Award

Killington Resort received the 2023 NSAA Award for Best Collision Avoidance Program. The awards were distributed as part of NSAA’s 2023 National Convention & Tradeshow on May 10 in Savannah, Georgia.

“We are thrilled to receive this award, as guest safety is paramount to our success at Killington and Pico,” President Mike Solimano said. “We have had the pleasure of working with the Snow Angel foundation on their #RideAnotherDay campaign for several seasons now and are thrilled to help promote their message year after year. The Johnsons’ personal story really helps drive home the importance of safe skiing and riding.”  

Killington and Pico Resorts previously won the collision safety award in 2019 and was a finalist in 2022 for the Best Guest Safety Program. During the 2022/23 season, Killington & Pico continued to focus on collision prevention programs with visible efforts surrounding the #RideAnotherDay campaign including a live event with the Johnson family that, along with the Play Forever Fridays donation based on lift ticket sales, which raised $9,500. 

The resorts also added new lift tower signs designed to complement the three tenets of the campaign (Be Ready, Stay Alert, Plan Ahead), hosted several on-hill #RideAnotherDay events with Ski Patrol and worked the campaign’s audio messages into lift load PAs.

“It feels great to be recognized and I’m very pleased that after four years, the #RideAnotherDay campaign has become infused with our on-hill culture,” said Killington and Pico Risk and Insurance Manager John Duke. “Work in this area is by definition ongoing and we will not be resting on our laurels. We look forward to continuing to improve our on-hill culture as it relates to the shared responsibility we have to each other while skiing and riding.”
