Website Accessibility and Nondiscrimination
For Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area & Route of the Hiawatha
Lookout Pass Associates is committed to compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 and Title II so that anyone with a disability is able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same benefits and services within the same timeframe as those without disabilities, with substantially equivalent ease of use; and that they are not excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination in any of our programs, services, and activities delivered online.
Benchmarks for Measuring Accessibility
It is our goal that this website and specific and related websites including those which may be developed by, maintained by or offered through third party vendors and open sources, will conform to the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative’s (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA and the Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite (WAI-ARIA) 1.0 techniques for web content, or updated equivalents of these guidelines, except where doing so would impose an undue burden or create a fundamental alteration.
Testing and Accountability
We have designated a Website Compliance Coordinator, in coordination with our management team who collectively are responsible for the continual improvement of web accessibility across our websites. The Website Compliance Coordinator drives the ongoing training of web editors and appropriate personnel, including employees who are responsible for developing, loading, maintaining, or auditing web content functionality.
The Website Compliance Coordinator is responsible for reviewing all areas of our websites and evaluating accessibility on a periodic basis, and at least once per year oversees the timely correction of nonconforming webpages.
