What is the protocol for riding the chairlift with children?
  • All passengers and/or children must be aware of the lift loading and unloading procedures.
  • Children/passengers must be able to sit and ride the Chairlift independently (free of embrace or human restraint).
  • Children/passengers must sit all the way to the back of the seat (“back to back”); do not lean forward or on the restraint device.
  • Guests will not be permitted access to the chairlifts with a child in a carrier such as a backpack or chest pack. This is for the safety of the child in the unlikely event of a lift evacuation or injury to the adult.
If we need to evacuate the chairlift, what is the procedure?

In the unlikely event of a lift evacuation, each passenger may be required to be lowered from the chairlift using a “T-Seat” from a height upwards of 100’ off the ground.
