National Safety Month

National Safety Week has now become National Safety Month! Now the month of January will be dedicated to an entire month of safety. Many Resorts across the country participate every year, including Kirkwood, to educate skiers and snowboarders about being safe, and to use common sense on the slopes.
 
Kirkwood has many great activities planned over the coming weekends to engage our guests and help reinforce good safety practices while enjoying the mountain. Please email jmyers3@vailresorts.com if you have any quesitons regarding the programs listed below.
