Personal SafetyAll The Ski Week events are extremely safe. However, as you will find yourselves in unfamiliar surroundings, we recommend that you follow some basic precautions. We’ll lay it out simple for you:
- Lock your hotel room and lockers when you leave and store expensive possessions, travel documents, and extra cash in a hidden spot.
- Stay with other TSW guests and staff whenever possible.
- Avoid parties and venues not on the itinerary or recommended by TSW.
- Walking home in the cold alone is not not a good idea. No one wants to leave a party alone, so buddy up some friends to accompany you home.
- Wear proper gear both on and off the mountains. Refer to our Essentials Packing List for the full list of everything you will need!
