Senate bill would require transparency from Colorado ski areas on safety and accidents

The Denver Post: A bill sponsored by two state senators that would require Colorado ski resorts to collect and publish safety plans and accident data is scheduled to be heard in a committee of the legislature next week.

Sponsored by Democrats Tammy Story of Conifer and Jessie Danielsen of Wheat Ridge, SB21-184 would require ski area operators to “adopt and disclose safety plans, disclose seasonal ski accident statistics and maintain an accident data database,” according to a summary of the bill on the general assembly’s website.

A group called Safe Slopes Colorado has been promoting the bill, which would update the Colorado Ski Safety Act of 1979.
