Kids on Lifts

Tips for Responsible Lift Use

Safety on liftsIt’s YOUR Responsibility to know how and use and ride the lift safely.

  • Ask the lift attendant for help if you need assistance. Smallest kids should load closest to the attendant.
  • Do not use phones, music or games while loading or unloading.
  • If you are not ready to slide out to wait for the chair when it is your turn, it is OK! Just stand and wait for the chair to go past and wait for the next one.
  • When loading, watch for approaching chair and then sit and scootch all the way to the back of the chair once seated!
  • Drop something? Let it FALL. Any item dropped can be picked up later.
  • Absolutely NO horseplay on the lifts!! This includes throwing snowballs and clicking your skis together to drop snow off them.

How to Ride our lifts:

  • Getting on:
    As a chair passes you at the “Wait Here” sign, move ahead quickly to the “Load Here” sign and line up evenly. When the next chair comes behind you, sit on the seat, and slide back as far as you can to keep from falling off the chair.

  • Riding the lift:
    Sit back, hold on, sit still

    Sit way back to keep from falling from the chair and enjoy the ride to the top! No horsing around, it’s dangerous when you are riding up in the air.

  • Getting off:
    At the “Unload Here” sign it is time to get off. Stand up, and ski down the ramp. Watch for others ahead and ski around them. Move out of the way quickly, so others can unload too.

THIS IS A PARTIAL LIST. IT’S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ALWAYS BE SAFETY CONSCIOUS.
