Breckenridge Ski Resort’s Ski Safety Week started out with a bang Jan. 19. While many skiers and riders hear about the Skier Responsibility Code — through signs and even cafeteria napkins — few truly give it a lot of thought. But this week, Breck focuses on it — and makes it a blast.
The weekend featured free hot dogs, helmet fitting and low-cost helmets, avalauncher demos and avy dog demos.
Check out some of the photos from the weekend.
And don’t worry — you didn’t miss everything. All week, through Friday, Jan. 25, you can stop into any patrol hut (either on the bottom floor of the Vista Haus, or at the tops of the Independence, Mercury and Falcon chairlifts) and participate in trail checks and end-of-day sweeps. And through Friday, there’s a raffle at Peak 8’s base tent; just name three safety code items and get a raffle ticket.
