Killington Resort celebrates National Safety Awareness Month

January — KILLINGTON — January is National Safety Awareness Month at Killington. Along with National Ski Areas Association, Killington Resort will be educating skiers and riders about slope safety awareness throughout the month of January by promoting “Your Responsibility Code” and “Smart Style,” plus offering special promotions and interactive displays to raise awareness.

Look for the interactive display in Ramshead Base Lodge Saturdays and Sundays from Jan. 3 – 31, plus Monday Jan. 19. Here kids can talk with Mountain Ambassadors, color safety themed posters covering the seven points of “Your Responsibility Code,” and get their picture taken with “Know the Code.” Plus, take a safety awareness quiz, decorate a helmet cover and maybe walk away with some fun prizes. An assortment of safety awareness flyers, cards and stickers will be available throughout the resort.

Visit Potter Brothers, located at Killington Sports Route 4 or at Snowshed Base Lodge at Killington Resort, for 50% off binding checks throughout the month of January. Plus, receive a National Safety Awareness Month discount on Geigerrig hydration units. Stop by the Creation Station to learn more.

At the Creation Station, kids can enter a raffle to win a free snow sports helmet and other prizes. Raffles will take place Saturdays and Sundays from Jan. 3 – 31, plus Monday, Jan. 19.

Later this month, purchase a helmet at any Killington Sports location from Jan. 16-25 and you’ll receive a voucher for a free lift ticket, valid any day starting Jan. 26, 2015 through the end of the 2014-15 season. 

Out on the hill, ambassadors, patrollers and instructors will be handing out “Know the Code” stickers and cards, “Smart Style” stickers and a “Freestyle Terrain User’s Guide” to guests. Plus, some ambassadors will wear bright yellow jackets that display important safety awareness messages based on “Your Responsibility Code” and give away prizes to guests who successfully answer a safety awareness quiz.
