Roundtop keeps close eye on skiers during bitter cold

LEWISBERRY, Pa. (WHTM) – The recent frigid temperatures haven’t stopped winter warriors from hitting the slopes at Roundtop Mountain Resort in York County. It can be fun, but it can also be a serious risk, which is why members of the ski patrol are keeping a close eye on skiers and snowboarders alike.

The ski patrol is looking out for signs of hypothermia as well as inadequate cold weather attire.

“We just remind people if you start to feel cold, go in and warm up. The lodge is only a couple of steps from the slopes.  So, if you start to feel cold or feel numb just go on inside and warm up a little bit and you’ll be good to go,” Chris Dunning, marketing director at Roundtop said.

Managers say that while safeguards are in place to keep people safe, dressing in layers and knowing when to call it quits are the best ways to stay safe.
