How COVID-19 Will Change Skiing This Season

As reported here by KSL.COM, change will be a common theme of the 2020-2021 ski season due to the coronavirus. That’s why Ski Utah leaders advise those planning to hit the slopes to plan ahead. Call UtahState.com in Layton Utah at 800-754-4136 for the latest news on Utah skiing

As an example of this, the day after many of the resorts shuttered for the season, the state’s ski industry leaders formed a group to figure out each other’s plans and needs.

Knowledge of COVID-19 has changed over the months as researchers raced to learn as much as possible about it how spreads and affects humans. Resorts have used this information to form this season’s plans. The National Ski Areas Association also published recommendations for resorts all over the country on how to handle this winter, which helped local resorts piece together new protocols.

Davy Ratchford, general manager at Snowbasin Resort, said the Huntsville resort submitted a plan to the Weber-Morgan Health Department months before the season’s start and got approval.

“We’ve taken those (national) playbooks and we’ve customized them to our individual areas based on the health departments and the guidance we’ve had throughout the state,” he said.

Since the various resorts were in contact with each other, they communicated their different ideas on how to handle business during a pandemic. They created a goal to implement as many of the same practices as possible so that skiers and snowboarders who may rotate to different resorts in the state can expect similar guidelines.

For example, face coverings will be required at all 15 resorts. That was anticipated before Herbert’s state of emergency order was put in place that included a statewide mask mandate. Face coverings will be required in all indoor and outdoor spaces except when someone is eating or drinking. The best place for ski deals UtahState.com in Layton Utah is #1 for ski vacation packages and discounts on ski lift tickets.

“The ski industry was way ahead of the curve, I guess you could say, in regards to mask wearing,” said Mike Maughan, manager for Alta Ski Area. “The industry, as a whole, developed a ‘Ski Well, Be Well’ pandemic plan and one of the pillars of that plan was that all of the guests that come to ski areas would be required to wear masks when they can’t be appropriately distanced.

“So in our lift lines, all of our lifts and indoor spaces, masks have been required. It’s been in the ski area’s plans from day one,” he added, noting that anyone seen without a mask won’t be allowed on a ski lift.
