Family Meeting Place: Although the likelihood of your child being separated from you or the instructor is slim, it is always good to have a family meeting place. We suggest you use the ski school as your meeting place so we can help you make your reconnections faster.
- You may want to put your cell phone numbers and names on a card in child’s pocket. Put your child’s name and age on the card also.
- Keep a trail map in your child’s pocket.
- Do not let your child ski between your legs. This is a very dangerous practice for you and your child. Remember, lessons will teach your child how to stand up and stop on his/her own.
- Don’t take your children on terrain that they are not ready for. Just because they can do a power wedge down just about any run doesn’t mean they should. Be safe with them.
- Whistles: It is a good idea to have a good plastic safety whistle oneach child. Sometimes they can’t be heard if they are yelling but a whistle can be heard for a longer range. Also, teach them to use the whistle responsibly. It is a safety tool not a toy.
- Lifts: Please remind your children not to wiggle while they are on the chairlifts. Have them use the safety bar and not try to look down at someone as they watch them go under their chair. Don’t turn around while sitting on the lift. Skier should never try to get the snow off of their skis by knocking their skis together while on the lift. We loose more skis that way and it is a danger to those below.
- Be well hydrated. You and your family will tolerate the cold, altitude, and exercise better if your muscles are well hydrated. Start hydrating before you come to Utah or up to Brighton.
- Watch for frostbite. Watch for little white patches of skin. Get your child or yourself out of the cold weather. If it looks serious, go to the clinic to have it checked out. If your child says his/her toes or fingers are cold, they really are cold.
- Put hand warmers in your children’s pockets, just in case they need them during the day.
- Responsibility Code: Help your children know and understand the Responsibility Code. Safety, common sense and courtesy are important on the slopes.
