The Snow Safety content is divided into two parts – inside the ski area boundary and outside the ski area boundary (into the backcountry). Along the way we will cover a number of different activities you can do with your class to help reinforce their learning.
Introducing The Presentation
Learn how to properly introduce both yourself, and the program to your audience. Make sure to include a hook and rationale that will get participants interested in the presentation, and inform them of the purpose of the program.
Playing it Safe
Learn about ski hill safety for skiers and snowboarders, including the Alpine Responsibility Code, hill signage, and hazards on the hill.
Out of Bounds
Learn about how to be prepared for and how to stay safe in the backcountry. This section also covers avalanche awareness.
Concluding the Presentation
Learn how to properly summarize and conclude the Snow Safety course. Take time for questions and answers, and provide additional information and resources on ski hill and avalanche safety.
