Canyons Resort has won the National Ski Areas Association Safety Award in 2012 for Best Safety Website. Highlights of the site include a letter from Managing Director, Mike Goar and safety quizzes for both kids and adults.
Canyons has also won NSAA awards in 2010 and 2011 for Best Chairlift Program. The program involves round targets installed on the chairlift seats that provide a visual reminder on where to sit. The program encourages children to "Sit on the Spot" when riding on a chairlift, helping our little guests to sit with their back against the back of the chair and be in a safer position when riding the chairlift. "Spots" are installed on High Meadow, our quad chairlift that accesses the easiest terrain on the mountain. This lift is most often used by Canyons Ski and Snowboard School for their beginner skiers and snowboarders.
The Sit on the Spot program is only a small piece of Safety Week at Canyons Resort. The program encourages guests to "Sit on the Spot" when sitting on a chairlift, helping guests to sit with their back against the back of the chair and be in a safer position when riding the chairlift.
