BENEFITS AND ADVANTAGES OF SKI AREAS
Ski areas provide low-risk outdoor recreation opportunities for millions of Americans. Here’s what makes the ski industry uniquely positioned to do so:
U.S. ski areas provide hundreds of acres of land for outdoor recreation. Ski area operators are experts at monitoring and managing the flow and volume of traffic in their outdoor spaces.
Natural Outdoor Environment
The majority of time spent at a ski area is spent outside in the fresh air, cruising down runs.
Face coverings, including neck gaiters, goggles, gloves or mittens, and helmets are standard pieces of skiing or snowboarding gear.
Slope Safety Etiquette
Long-standing skiing and snowboarding etiquette requires guests to respect one another and give space between themselves and other skiers and riders. Safe skiers leave space between other skiers.
