Snowbird to Open with Top-to-Bottom Skiing and Riding for 2020–21 Winter Season

Health and safety will be top of mind as the season kicks off Monday, November 30.

Snowbird, UT (November 27, 2020) — Snowbird will welcome skiers and riders on Monday, November 30, 2020, to begin the 2020/21 winter season. This follows months of preparation including new guidelines and adapting best practices that resulted in the creation of Operation Stay Safe: a comprehensive plan built to ensure that Snowbird guests, employees and community remain safe and healthy while enjoying the mountain all season long. 

To kick off the winter, guests will have access to runs off Gadzoom, Mid-Gad, Chickadee and the iconic Aerial Tram, providing top-to-bottom skiing and riding across acres of open terrain, conditions permitting. Snowbird’s all-new parking reservation system will also go into effect on Monday. This will allow Snowbird to safely manage the number of skiers and riders at the mountain on any given day and enable guests to plan their visit with confidence knowing they have locked in their parking spot with room to physically distance throughout the resort. Snowbird anticipates additional parking inventory to open as more terrain becomes available to appropriately space out guests on the mountain. All guests will be expected to comply with Snowbird’s COVID-19 guidelines, including physical distancing and required face coverings.

“After months of waiting, we are pleased to welcome our community back to Snowbird,” said Snowbird President and General Manager Dave Fields. “I’ve never been more excited for a ski season. This one will look like no other, but we hope that by working together, remaining positive and continuing to adapt, we can get back to the joy that skiing and riding provides.”

Additional measures that have been taken with the health and safety of Snowbird guests and employees in mind include the expansion of Snowbird’s grab-and-go food offerings across the resort, an additional 15,000 square feet of indoor space, extended maze designs that account for lateral spacing, new ticket pick-up boxes and more.
