Meadows Saturday Safety Fair Celebrates National Ski Area Safety Week

Mt. Hood, OR - Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort celebrates National Ski Area Safety Week this Saturday with a Safety Fair. The National Ski Areas Assocation has designated January 15 – 23, 2011 as National Ski Area Safety Awareness Week. The event promotes and encourages responsible practices and etiquette designed to make skiers and snowboarders more aware of safety on the slopes. Essential to courteous and safe sharing of the mountain is the Responsibility Code – seven simple rules which if followed can provide an extra margin of safety on the slopes.

Saturday’s Safety Fair will encourage guests to find the seven Safety “Codesters”, learn the rules and win prizes ranging from safety whistles to safety messenger bags. Those who collect all seven Codester stamps on their Code Card will be eligible to win a 10 Time Pass given away in drawings in the afternoon and evening.

Representatives from Meadows Pro Patrol will be on hand to discuss safety issues and introduce guests to the safety search and rescue dogs. A contest will also be presented to allow guests to find hidden targets with tracking beacons used by backcountry enthusiasts. The Safety Fair is presented by Fuel TV, Monster Energy Drink, Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital and the Anheuser-Busch Responsibility Matters Program.
