Breckenridge Ski Resort reminder: No sledding on ski slopes

BRECKENRIDGE – In an effort to reinforce the safety message of No Sledding on Ski Slopes, Breckenridge Ski Resort wants to remind the public of the policy.

Sledding or tobogganing can be a fun winter pastime, but this activity is not appropriate on ski slopes and trails as they aren’t designed for this activity. Sledding on ski slopes and trails can be hazardous due to:

> the steepness of the slope

> the firmness of the snow

> the presence of skiers and snowboarders

> the presence of vehicles, such as snowmobiles and snow grooming equipment

> the presence of obstacles such as trees, fences, buildings, snowmaking equipment and lift towers

>limited or inadequate run-out to slow or stop the sleds.

Due to the hazards and risks noted above, Breckenridge Ski Resort wants to remind guests of the policy below:

Sledding on designated ski runs or within the ski area boundary is not permitted by guests or employees. This applies to any type of device that can be used for sledding including, but not limited to, sleds, toboggans, tubes or saucers and other devices such as shovels, pads, or trays. Sledding should only be done on slopes that are specifically designed for these activities such as Vail’s Adventure Ridge and Keystone’s Adventure Point.
