COVID-19 Update Concerning Colorado Ski Country USA Ski Areas

map1 0

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, all Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) ski areas will be suspending their operations beginning tomorrow, Sunday March 15, until further notice. We know that this action will cause disappointment and inconvenience for many visitors and residents, but it is made with the best interests of our guests, employees and the communities in which we operate in mind. The Governor of Colorado has issued an executive order directing this suspension of operations. He has done so in consultation with Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) and local public health authorities and out of concern for the capacity of local health providers. We encourage guests to reach out directly to the ski area they planned to visit for further information. Please be patient during this time as ski areas will be receiving a high volume of calls and inquiries.

The closure order currently applicable to Colorado ski areas has been extended for two more weeks. We will keep you updated as we receive new information.

This page will be updated with the most up to date information from ski areas across Colorado.
