Vail Resorts Winter Operating Plan Announced

Vail Resorts, which owns and operates mountain resorts all across the U.S., announced their 2020/2021 Season Operating Plan that deals with the COVID epidemic and measures they're taking to open up the mountains for the ski and snowboard season.

Key parts to the plan for you to know include:

  • Face Coverings
  • Physical Distancing on Slopes
  • Reservations Required
  • Physical Distancing on Chairlifts and Lodges
  • Health Screenings and Ski School

There's a lot of detail in the plan, so if you're an Epic Pass holder or are thinking about visiting a Vail owned resort this winter, it's worth spending a few minutes and reading the whole letter here:

Vail Resorts Announces Operating Plans for 2020/2021 season

A critical step to think about now, even though it's August, is making a reservation for key dates on your calendar. 

I know it's a lot of change, but given the circumstances we're all in, getting out on the mountain this winter will be a great way to get outside and enjoy days in a safe and family friendly way. If you're like my family, we rediscovered the fun of biking this Summer. We're all looking forward to more family days on the local mountains this Winter!
