Local resorts hosting safety awareness day

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Local resorts are making sure you’re safe when you hit the slopes. Resorts are gearing up for its annual Ski California Safety Day Saturday.

The goal is to teach people safe practices and habits when skiing or riding. Resorts will focus on topics like proper chairlift loading and deep snow safety.

Mount Rose Ski Tahoe’s Siani Nau said, “Safety can also be a lot of fun and it’s also important to remember to do it every day.”

Each resort will have its own unique and engaging activities. She said, “Anytime we can collaborate its great, especially for a good cause like safety.”
