Get ready to have a time of your life! The most important part of having fun is staying safe. Getting hurt is the quickest way to ruin a great day on the hill. The goal of Stratton's safety team is to provide you with all of the necessary tools to ensure that you have the best time on the Mountain.
Stratton is also proud to report that resort was recognized 6 years in a row with most recent in 2010 and 2011 with National Ski Areas Association Safety Awards. We take several steps to recognize and promote National Safety Awareness Week resort-wide but our main goal is to be safe all season long not just one week.
Remember to Play Safe, Play Smart and Enjoy the Mountain while knowing your limits. Safety never takes a vacation so a little bit of caution goes a long way.

Stratton Ski and Safety Patrol serve as leaders in providing a safe on-mountain experience for guests and employees alike. This team includes both paid and volunteer skiers/snowboarders who interact with guests on and off the hill providing emergency care and promoting safety. Stratton’s team is NOT just about picking up the sleds and transporting them down the mountain; it’s much more than that. Besides the team's medical care to our guest, other duties include safety-related responsibilities to open the area each morning, maintain a safe environment during operation and to close the area at the end of the day. Follow a Ski Patroller through a day in their life in this video.
Slow Zones are areas of heavy traffic that can become congested with skiers and riders. Our Safety Patrollers are on the mountain each day patrolling the 'Slow Zones', identifiable by the banners and signs at the run entrances and clearly marked on the trail maps. Look for our volunteer Safety Patrollers in orange jackets and "Play Safe, Play Smart and Enjoy the Mountain" insignia.Learn More
