Is it over yet? Not quite, but things will be a little more normal this year, especially outside where skiers and riders can expect to shed masks and load lifts like it’s 2019. Ski California Member Resorts are still operating this season with health and safety procedures that adhere to state and local public health and safety requirements, including an indoor mask mandate through January 15, 2022. Like last year, we are still in the world of ‘Know Before You Go,’ so please review each resort’s policies, which are linked below.

Skiers and riders share many things: a love of the mountains, the feeling of freedom when cruising down runs, and making memories with family and friends. We are explorers. We are first timers. We are powder chasers. We are first chair riders at our local hill. No matter who you are, we are all part of the outdoor community.

So let’s be kind to one another. Respect yourself and others. Know that the actions we all take can affect our community. This is the contract of skiers and riders: take care of the environment, take care of yourself, take care of each other.
