Ski Well, Be Well

Chair Loading



This season, outdoor operations will look much like they did prior to the pandemic.

  • Chairlifts will most likely be loaded to capacity
  • Unrelated parties will be able to ride the lift together
  • Some enclosed carriers like gondolas and trams may have capacity restrictions
  • Masks will most likely be optional outside
  • You can expect standard organization of lift lines, with no "ghost" lanes
  • Please wear a mask if you are high-risk or if you feel uncomfortable


Indoor Operations

This season, indoor operations will vary depending on the ski area.

  • Ski areas will follow all state and local public health regulations; in some cases, ski areas may have stricter protocols in place
  • Protocols are subject to change throughout the season
  • Please follow all signage and requirements


  • Ski areas may ask guests to wear masks indoors
  • Masks may be required for children who are too young to be vaccinated
  • If you wear a mask, make sure it is two layers of fabric and fits over your nose and mouth


While some ski areas are requiring vaccination for their employees, there are a handful requiring vaccinations for guests in specific areas of the ski area operation. Be sure to look at a ski area's website, social media or email marketing, or call ahead so you are prepared to show proof of vaccination.

Health Benefits


  • KNOW BEFORE YOU GO. Staying informed and being flexible are key this season!
  • Keep a mask in your pocket - you'll always be prepared if you need one
  • Throw a mask in your kid's pocket, too!
  • Carry proof of vaccination in case a business, event or venue requires it
