Utah Ski Resorts COVID-19 2021-2022 Safety Protocols

Utah's resorts will be open and spinning lifts beginning mid-November 2021. It's important to note that there are still some COVID-19 safety protocols in place at many of our resorts. While this winter will look much more normal outside and on the lifts, be sure to plan ahead, check each resort's individual safety guidelines and cooperate with resort staff and posted signage. As a rule of thumb, it's always a good idea to have a mask on you in case it's needed indoors. It takes cooperation from skiers and riders to make a successful and safe ski season. Whenever you're ready to get back to sliding on snow, Utah ski resorts are here to welcome you with wide-open bowls, playful tree runs and The Greatest Snow on Earth®.

 

Safety Protocols & Resort Operations

While all ski areas in the state have adopted the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) guidelines and are following state and CDC recommendations, each has evolved its own protocols to make sure we can all do what we love—sharing the mountains and playing on the snow with our family and friends.

Check each resort's links below to read the most recent updates on their specific operating plans. Please note that resort protocols may change throughout the season so please check back often for up-to-date information.
