2019 UPDATE: SnowSport Safety Foundation

Snow sport Safety Foundation has begun doing research in Colorado. After postponing on mountain safety surveys last season due to poor snowfall statewide, SSF plans to start doing surveys of Colorado resorts during the 2018 / 2019 Season. As we have done in California, SSF has also initiated research of the Colorado Hospital Payment Database to obtain data on the number of annual hospital admissions and emergency room visits due to ski and snowboard accidents. This research will provide the first ever documented estimate of serious snow sport injuries in Colorado. Finally, SSF is sponsoring a preliminary survey of the management of reckless behavior and enforcement of the Skier Duties provisions of Colorado Ski Safety Act.
