COVID-19 Policies

As we enter our 2022/2023 season, we would like to ensure you that we remain committed to providing our guests with an enjoyable and safe skiing, riding, and tubing environment. Guests and employees are not required to wear masks, however, it is recommended since an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. We have continued to expand our outdoor seating, which has more than doubled since the 2019/2020 season. Our increased cleaning and sanitation procedures remain in place. If you feel sick, we ask that you stay home and visit us at a later date.

Helmets and Protective Gear

We highly recommend wearing a helmet, even for tubing. The use of helmets or wrist guards may reduce the risk of injury. Wrist injuries are not uncommon for snowboarders and wrist guards can help prevent injuries. Whether or not to wear a helmet or other safety devices is a personal choice. Make sure to check into all available options. Here are some sources of additional safety information:
