Regulatory Efforts

Parents for Safe Skiing and Riding is committed to increasing regulatory accountability. As a result of our advocacy and our members commitment, we have gained legislators' support. With the guidance of Representative McCluskie, the Department of Regulatory Agencies is hosting a stakeholders work group to discuss ski lift safety in Colorado. The agenda items we are putting forth include: 

  • Height requirement for riding a chairlift without loading assistance and without an adult. 

  • Age requirement for riding a chairlift without a an adult.

  • Enforcement of operational errors.

  • Required safety bars for children. 

  • Transparacy in incident reporting. 

  • Collection of loading and unloading data. 

  • Required drug testing for lift attendants. 

Our first meeting will be July 18, 2019. Please contact us with any comments or questions you may have.
