This year, ski resorts will welcome skiers and snowboarders with ski resort coronavirus protocols that balance safety, prevention, and enjoyment. Remote ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains, where a traveler can rent a private chalet, and stay safely distanced most of the day while skiing, are an appealing option for avid skiers.
Skiing and boarding already offer advantages as far as activities go. These winter sports are enjoyed outdoors in fresh mountain air. Skiers and boarders are already used to covering their faces from sun or cold, and wearing goggles and gloves, and the act of downhill skiing is one that naturally distances one from others.
Ski Well, Be Well
The National Ski Areas Association’s Ski Well, Be Well campaign offers best practices for resort operators and guests this winter.
- Face coverings must be worn whenever physical distancing cannot be achieved
- Physical distancing protocols will be in place for both indoor and outdoor spaces
- Ski area staff commit to increased cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch areas.
