Ski Area Safety Program

The Ski Area Safety Act, 1962 PA 199 as amended, was created to license and regulate ski areas and ski lifts in Michigan. The Ski Area Safety Act defines ski area as an area used for skiing and served by one or more lifts. Ski lifts are defined as a device for transporting persons uphill on skis, or in cars on tracks, or suspended in the air by use of cables, chains, belts, or ropes, and usually supported by trestles or towers with one or more spans.

The department currently oversees the operation of 53 ski areas with 157 surface and chair lifts and 141 rope tows.
