Today is the 2nd Annual California Ski Safety Day in celebration of Safety on the Slopes. Be sure to pick up your copy of the California Ski Safety Guide either online below or all over Dodge Ridge. Most important of all, be sure to give our awesome ski patrollers a solid High 5 and some kind words. We couldn’t do this without them.
