Tips for your Colorado Ski Country Visit
Know Before You Go. As you consider your winter plans, we encourage you to do your research before your trip. Check ski area websites, social media and other communications prior to your visit to understand any policies and procedures in place including current ticketing availability and what is expected of you during your visit.
Stay at home when experiencing any signs or symptoms of illness, if you have someone in your household experiencing signs or symptoms of illness or if you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. We have a shared responsibility to protect each other. If you are at higher risk or have someone at higher risk in your household, consider skiing on a low volume day or wait until the risk is lower in public places. Ski areas will be here to welcome you when you return.
Many ski areas will be requiring prepurchase of lift tickets, ski school reservations, rentals and other activities and guests should check with the ski area they plan to visit before and leading up to their arrival.
Guests will need to wear masks and face coverings at ski areas in all indoor and public outdoor spaces, except while skiing and snowboarding and dining, including in lift and gondola lines and on lifts and gondolas. Ski areas will be following state and local guidance for indoor spaces, lodging, transportation and other activities where appropriate.
Practice good hand hygiene. Use hand sanitizer frequently—before and after touching high touch surfaces. Avoid touching your mouth, eyes and nose.
Exhibit COVID-19 responsible behavior at ski areas and in ski communities. Large, non-physically distanced group gatherings should not be part of your plans before, during or after skiing during the 2020-21 ski season.
While we do not know every detail about the upcoming ski season and conditions will continue to evolve throughout the season, we do know that Colorado Ski Country member ski areas are excited to welcome skiers and riders to the slopes for the 2020-21 season! This ski season will be different, but there is no better antidote to our current times than being outside, naturally social distant enjoying Colorado’s signature sports of skiing and snowboarding.
