FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

What Ski School programs will be available this winter?

We will be offering both group and private lessons. All ski and ride school classes will have a maximum class size of six. Specifically for 5- and 6-year-olds, the maximum class size will be four. Because 3- and 4-year-olds often spend a good portion of their lesson indoors, we will offer this age group one-on-one, one-hour private lessons. This age group is also welcome to join their family in a full- or half-day private lesson.

What are your enhanced safety protocols? How will you maintain physical distancing?

We will be limiting the class size of all of group and private lessons to six or fewer people. All participants will be required to complete a pre-arrival self-health screening on the day of their lesson. Child classes will be considered cohorts and will ride lifts together during the day with their instructor. For all lessons, participants will meet on snow, not indoors. Face coverings will be required.

Will health screenings be in effect, for both the guest and the instructor, prior to a lesson?

All of our employees will be required to undergo health screenings before they arrive at work, with employees undergoing official health screenings at the resort. Ski & Ride School participants will be required to complete a pre-arrival self-health screening each day that they have a lesson.

When will reservations be open for Ski & Ride School?

As the season approaches, we will have more information on the Ski School reservation process at our resorts.

Do participants in Ski School need to separately make a reservation to access the mountain?

A mountain access reservation is included with the purchase of a Ski School lesson for the lesson taker(s) only. Pass holders will not need to make a separate reservation. A lift ticket or eligible pass product will be required, which can be added to your lesson when checking out.

Will you still be able to sign up for lessons day-of, on-site?

Lessons will need to be purchased in advance – no walk-up, day-of lessons will be available.

Will kids Ski School still include lunch?

No we will not be offering lunch with any Ski School products this year. 
 

Will childcare be available?

We will not be offering childcare for guests at our resorts this winter season. We are focused primarily on our on-mountain operations and skiing programs.

What will happen to season-long and specialty programs this season?

Most season-long youth programs will be offered this year for children age 7 and up.

Why are you not allowing children age 6 and under in your season-long programs?

To help protect our guests, our employees and our communities amid this pandemic, we knew some changes would be required this season. This decision was made for the safety of children and employees as we have evaluated what products we can effectively offer within the lesson structure which includes managing lift safety, lunch processes and general needs of children of different ages throughout a lesson product.

What if my child has a credit from last year’s season-long program but is under the age of 7? 

Your credit may be applied to another lesson type for your child or another member of your household.  More information to come if you are not able to use your credit.

What are you doing to keep guests safe?

In addition to following all local regulations, we believe the core ways to keep guests safe this winter include: requiring face coverings, allowing for physical distancing, and ensuring guests and employees stay home if sick. We have designed our winter operating plan to do what we feel matters most, help keep guests safe and provide access to great skiing and snowboarding this winter.

Are face coverings required?

Yes. Face coverings will be required in every part of our operation, including while loading and riding on chairlifts and in gondolas, inside all buildings, and during all ski and snowboard lessons. No one will be permitted on the mountain without a face covering.

Do I have to wear a face covering while I’m skiing and snowboarding? 

While face coverings are not required during the physical acts of skiing and snowboarding if the guest is maintaining proper physical distance and is not in the vicinity of others, it is recommended guests do so. Otherwise, face coverings are required in every part of our operation, including while loading and riding on chairlifts and in gondolas, inside all buildings, and during all ski and snowboard lessons.

Are you allowing neck gaiters/buffs?

The type of face covering a guest may wear includes a cloth neck gaiter or other type of material that completely covers a person’s mouth and nose.

Are there any exemptions allowed? What if I can’t/won’t wear a face covering, such as if I’m ADA exempt?

Face coverings are required in every part of our operation without exception. If a guest is unable or unwilling to wear a face covering, the guest will not be allowed access in order to limit the risk of COVID-19 exposure to other guests and employees.

What about my child age 2 and under – do they need a mask?

In line with local and CDC guidelines, we are asking that children aged 3 and older wear face coverings. 

What are you doing to ensure physical distancing is possible?

We will work to allow for physical distancing throughout our operations to help ensure a safe experience. First and foremost we will manage the number of people on our mountains through a reservation system. Additionally, we will only load related parties (guests skiing and riding together) on chairlifts and gondolas or: two singles on opposite sides of a four-person lift; two singles or two doubles on opposite sides of a six-person lift; or two singles on opposite sides of our larger gondola cabins. We will also manage the number of people coming in and out of our restaurants. 

What happens if there is a case of COVID-19 confirmed at your resort?

We will continue to work with local health officials to minimize the impact and spread of COVID-19 in our resort communities, prioritizing the health and safety of our employees and guests. If there is a case at our resort, or among an employee, we will follow all guidance provided by local health officials. If a guest or employee feels sick, we ask that they remain home.
