Safety and Responsibility

Steamboat's SlopeWise strategic initiative focuses on the company-wide strategic initiative of safe and responsible skiing and riding through awareness, education and consequences for unsafe conduct on the mountain.

Steamboat's team has always placed a major emphasis on safety on the slopes, however we know more can always be accomplished. The resort unveiled its SlopeWise program to incredible support from all levels of the resort and community. The program has gained significant momentum and continues to dramatically shape safe skiing and riding at Steamboat.

On behalf of the entire company, I trust you will safely and responsibly enjoy this great mountain, understand the risks associated with the sport as well as your responsibility; wish you lots of Champagne Powder® snow and thank you for visiting Steamboat.
