Safety Month 2022: Check Your Speed to #RideAnotherDay
Watch Your Speed So We Can ALL Ride Another Day
We all love the pull of gravity, and when the Best Snow in Idaho is groomed into fast, forgiving corduroy, it can be easy to ‘let ’em rip’. But it’s crucial to remember that your speed can impact more than just your own mountain experience.
Collisions can happen in the blink of an eye, and have enormous consequences. Brundage Mountain wants to remind all visitors that the choices you make can directly impact whether you or others can #RideAnotherDay.

Be ready to slow down or avoid objects or other people at any time. Ski and ride in such a way that you are always able to control yourself regardless of conditions and avoid others and objects you may encounter on the run, groomed or otherwise.
Stay alert to what’s going on around you, especially other skiers and riders. Being aware of those around and changing conditions will help you have a fun and safe day on the hill.
Ease up at blind spots, check uphill when merging onto trails, and give other skiers plenty of room when passing. Look out for spots on the run where traffic merges or you can’t see what’s coming next. If you are unfamiliar with a run, take it easy the first time down it and make note of places where you’ll want to slow down, such as cat tracks and rollers. Also, give other skiers and riders lots or room, especially if you are passing them. There’s plenty of space out there, so there’s no need to crowd each other.
By doing these three things every run, you’ll be helping keep the slopes safe and enjoyable, for you and everyone else.
