Resort operations present significant risk management challenges. Guests expect an experience that is thrilling and diverse, yet as safe as possible under the circumstances. While enthusiasts acknowledge the risks inherent to mountain sports, they also expect facilities to maintain a reasonable level of safety, regardless of conditions.

Systematic Approach to Safety

A steadfast approach to risk management results in fewer incidents and stronger defenses against lawsuits, while also addressing safety from multiple perspectives. Awareness of exposures and reliable insurance are essential, but not sufficient.  Our program takes a multidisciplinary approach to safety and risk management, including education, hazard reduction, maintenance, culture, engineering, planning and communication.
