Undoubtedly you're starting to think about winter, and may be wondering what will be different this season at your home mountain.

  • Face Coverings Required

    Keep your mask on - both inside and outside - while at your home mountain.

    Don't be the reason we lose the season! If you're not feeling 100% STAY HOME and If you start to show symptoms of illness LEAVE right away.

  • Keep Your Distance

    6 feet apart, roughly a ski/board length. Be considerate and leave some space between our staff and your fellow snow sports enthusiasts.

  • Use Your Vehicle As Base Camp

    Get ready in your rig this season. We will have reduced occupancy in all facilities. When tailgating remember to practice physical distancing and wear your face mask.

  • Arrive Together Ride Together

    Help reduce the likelihood of transmission, please stay with your group while at the mountain.

  • Be Wise Sanitize

    Use our Sanitization Stations and wash your hands often. Handwashing stations will be available throughout the mountain areas.

  • Singles Won't Mingle

    Singles will ride solo or on the outside on quad chairs. Please help us load chairs as efficiently as possible so you can spend more time on the slopes.
