Lift Safety

Grand Targhee Resort is committed to educating families on the importance of chairlift safety. Please visit our Practice Chair at the bottom of the Shoshone lift to help you to familiarize. The Grand Targhee Ski and Snowboard School is a great resource for families to learn more about safe riding techniques. For even more information and ways to educate your kids to stay in the chair, visit www.kidsonlifts.org. Be advised that you cannot board a lift unless you have sufficient physical dexterity, ability and knowledge to negotiate or to use such lift safely, or until you have asked for and received information sufficient to enable you to load, ride and unload the lift safely. You may not use a lift or any ski trail when under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Knowing how to properly use a chairlift is a part of Your Responsibility Code.

It’s YOUR Responsibility to know how to use and ride the lift safely.

GET ON

As a chair passes you at the “Wait Here” sign, move ahead quickly to the “Load Here” sign and line up evenly. When the next chair comes behind you, sit on the seat, and slide back as far as you can – to keep from falling off the chair.

 

SIT BACK, SIT STILL, HOLD ON

Sit way back to keep from falling from the chair and enjoy the ride to the top! No horsing around, it’s dangerous when you are riding up in the air.

 

AT THE TOP, PLAN AHEAD TO UNLOAD

At the “Unload Here” sign it is time to get off. Stand up, and ski down the ramp. Watch for others ahead and ski around them.  Move out of the way quickly, so others can unload too.
