In 2012, the website www.kidsonlifts.org and the initiative as a whole debuted around the country to resorts and consumers. This site contains FAQ’s and safety tips on how to load, ride and unload responsilby, general skiing and riding tips, coloring pages for kids, public service announcements and more. The tagline “No Horsing Around” is a motto we hope to ingrain in not only children but every skier and boarder.
