DO YOU AND YOUR CHILD KNOW HOW TO RIDE A SKI LIFT SAFELY?

HINT: As riders, we have the important role of learning and demonstrating safe behaviour on ski lifts. If unsure of what to do, don’t be shy! Ask a lift attendant or ski instructor for help before attempting to ride a lift.

Let’s work together!

We want families to have a fun, safe day on the slopes. That’s why we developed the PACE program. Your child will learn the Alpine Responsibility Code and other skiers/snowboarders will be reminded to give your child space and slow down around them. At participating resorts young children receive a special, bright PACE Bib to wear, so everyone will recognize them as young skiers.
