IMPORTANT Safety Protocols:

The most important thing to know before heading out this year will be to check the website of the ski area you want to visit well in advance, as specific COVID-19 policies can range depending on the mountain. It’s advised that you reserve your lift tickets in advance or check with the mountain directly for their ticket purchasing policy. Midweek skiing is always a good consideration to avoid the weekend crowds.
