The month of January is dedicated to Snowsport safety to help educate skiers and snowboarders about being safe, and to use common sense on the slopes. The National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) combines with the National Ski Patrol (NSP) Safety Initiatives to carve out and support safety on the slopes. Join our celebration of this NSAA and NSP event, by participating in some of the Wintergreen Ski Patrol's #WintergreenSafe program activities listed below.
