CANANDAIGUA, New York (December 10, 2020) –

Bristol Mountain opened for their 56th season of operation at 9am today, Thursday, December 10th. First chair honors went to Lauren Maynard, Mackenzie Kula, and Teddy Kula.

"The skiing was great and it's great to be back on snow!" Lauren Maynard from Victor, NY exclaimed.

In addition to today, Bristol Mountain will be open this weekend Friday (December 11th), Saturday (December 12th), and Sunday (December 13th) from 9am – 4pm. Ursa Major, Upper Rocket, and Lower Rocket trails will be open for advanced skiers and riders only. Terrain will not be available for beginner and intermediate skiers and riders. Check the website for additional information about Bristol Mountain’s operating hours and current trail conditions.

“We were so glad to be able to welcome skiers and riders back to the mountain today for our first day of operation” stated Bristol Mountain General Manager Daniel Fuller. “We were so impressed with guest compliance with our COVID-19 operating policies. Our guests and staff will be the reason that we have our season.”

Face coverings are required at all times when guests are at the resort unless they are actively skiing or snowboarding down the mountain and socially distant or they are seated indoors eating or drinking. Guests are asked to maintain a distance of 6 feet at all times whether on the slopes, in the lodges, or around the base area.

Capacity at the mountain will be monitored and limited on busy days or when the mountain has limited terrain (i.e. early season). Reservations will be required for card products and lift ticket sales. Reservations currently will not be required for season pass products that allow direct- to-lift access (picture passes).

Lodge capacity will be limited this winter. Guests are asked to limit their time in the lodges to 15-30 minutes to warm up and use the restrooms. The mountain requests that guests arrive prepared and use their vehicle as their base lodge.
