National Ski Patrol visits Killington

Killington Resort welcomes the National Ski Patrol for a meet and greet with guests on Jan. 13, 14, 27, and 28, to promote snow sports safety for National Safety Awareness Month. Plus, guests who purchase a helmet at any Killington Sports location on-site or online at killingtonsports.com Jan. 12-21 will receive a free lift ticket valid any day Jan. 22 through the end of the 2017/18 winter season.

In conjunction with the National Ski Areas Association and National Ski Patrol, 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.

“New this year, we’ve added safety lounges where skiers and riders have the opportunity to connect directly with members of our Ski Patrol team including an après safety lounge featuring live music, give-a-ways and safety messaging.” says Justin Guth, Risk Manager at Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “We’ve put together activities to reach avid skiers and riders in addition to beginners and children to promote safe speeds and collision awareness. Other activities include opportunities to win helmets, interactive displays, safety videos, kids crafts and more.”

Killington Resort is also partnering with Killington Elementary School by donating art supplies for a poster contest directed at skier safety. The winners’ artwork will be displayed at the resort throughout January. On the hill, an assortment of safety awareness flyers, cards and stickers will be available throughout the resort. 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.
