Our New Baby!

First and foremost, I would like to thank all of you who have committed to us thus far.  Your support means the world to us. As a token of our appreciation we will be providing a free Buddy Ticket to all adult/full benefit passholders who purchased by July 31.  So your first buddy you bring with you is on us.

As promised, we have added another food and beverage option that we think will become very popular.  Just outside the ticket window area there is now a food trailer where we will be serving burritos and other various goodies.  Beer and beverages as well.  We are making this area between the ticket windows and the Lesson and Rental Center a pedestrian only zone.  Where you saw a litany of ski racks last season will now have a litany of Adirondack chairs, which of course, will allow for more outdoor seating … hopefully while you are enjoying one of our delicious burritos. We are needing help naming this, so since this is your mountain we are putting it out there on Facebook for suggestions. Maybe this ends up being your trailer too.

We are working closely with the Chaffee County Department of Health and Environmental Services and have invited them up to discuss our operations and review the changes we have already implemented.  I know that there is a need for more specific information, and I promise that as soon as I know what that is, I will let you know immediately.  Thus far you can expect changes at the lift lines where we will allow for cohorts to load the chair together and for those who wish to ride alone, may do so.  Lift lines will be formed so to encourage social distancing.  Together these changes will result in a little longer wait times at the lifts on our busier days  The inside of the building will also adhere to all best practices as set forth by the Health Department. You can expect to have to wear a mask and stay six feet away from others outside of your personal group.  We will monitor the restrooms to ensure appropriate capacity levels and employ even higher standards of cleanliness. Hand sanitizing stations will be readily available throughout all areas of the lodge. In order to assist our guests with all these new guidelines, we will have a team of Ambassadors at each level of the lodge to help assuage any of your concerns.  In my previous blogs you can already read about the changes with the Sidewinder Saloon and the Guest Service check in area. Soon we will have new information regarding our Ski School operations as well as what may be happening with our Snow Cat operations.  Stay tuned. 

See on the slopes.
