Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present.  The resort has implemented protocols to prioritize guest health and safety, but we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed to COVID-19 during your visit.  The risk of being exposed or becoming sick due to COVID-19 cannot be eliminated.  Every skier and rider shares the responsibility for a safe and healthy skiing experience.  It is your responsibility to read and comply with all instructions and signage posted at the resort and on the resort’s website.  Stay home if you are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.  Wear a face covering in designated areas and maintain at least 6 feet physical distancing from other guests when possible.  Wash and sanitize your hands frequently.
