Increasing Safety This Ski Season

It's all about "safety first" during the 2009-2010 ski season with Intrawest's increase in helmet awareness. The company announced Thursday that at all of its wholly-owned ski resorts in North America, helmet-use will be recommended to all skiers and snowboarders and will be mandatory for all children and youth participating in Ski and Snowboard School Programs.

A helmet will be included with all children/youth ski and snowboard rental packages. In future seasons Intrawest will require employees to wear a helmet at all times.

Helmet usage guidelines will be phased in at the following Intrawest ski resorts:
Copper Mountain, Colorado
Mountain Creek, New Jersey
Panorama Mountain, British Columbia
Snowshoe Mountain, West Virginia
Steamboat Ski Resort, Colorado
Stratton Mountain, Vermont
Tremblant Resort, Quebec
