8 Tips for Skiing and Snowboarding During COVID-19

Skiers and SnowBoarders are always at the mercy of mother nature, but this year she has thrown us a entirely new curve ball — COVID-19.  While we look to plan our ski vacations, hit the hill for the day or buy season passes, there are several things to be aware of;

  1. Ski conglomerates such as Vail Resorts and Alterra Mountain Group are promising season pass holders priority mountain access.
  2. Reservations will be required to hit the hill, with priority going to season pass holders.
  3. Be prepared for longer lift lines due to 6-foot spacing and restrictions on the number of skiers allowed on lifts and gondolas.
  4. Don’t be surprised if lockers are not made available — day trippers get ready to change in your cars.
  5. Don’t plan to grab lunch in the cozy lodge or an après ski hot toddy at the bar,  Say hello though to food trucks and pre-ordered breakfast and lunches to go.
  6. If you have your own gear, bring it, as rentals are going to be a big hassle this year
  7. Your car, truck or SUV will likely be your homebase this year- pack it with sunscreen, water bottles and cooler full of snacks.  Embrace the ski parking lot tailgate.
  8. Mask Up!
