Enhanced Safety Protocols
Mt. Ashland will follow all state and local health and safety regulations this winter and will implement the following protocols to ensure the safety of our guests:
- Face coverings must be worn any time you are in line, around the chairlifts, the learning center, indoors, and when physical distancing is not possible. If we notice you are not properly wearing a mask or wearing an improper mask, we will request that you fix the problem twice. If we have to remind you a third time this season, we will ask that you leave the premises and you will not be invited back until next season. Shred it, don’t spread it! Thanks!
- Modified operations are in place to allow for physical distancing throughout the resort.
- Employees undergo a pre-work health screening and are required to stay at home should they present any symptoms of COVID-19 or other illness.
- Guests will be asked to stay home should they present any symptoms of COVID-19 or other illness.
- Mt. Ashland is requiring advanced reservations across the ski area, including ticketing, ski school, and the rental shop.
Even with these enhanced safety protocols, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and deaths, especially for senior citizens and individuals with underlying medical conditions. By visiting Mt. Ashland, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
Tips for a Successful Ski Experience
- Know before you go. Make sure to do your research so you know what to expect when you arrive. We keep our website and other communications channels updated regularly with info about parking, reservations, lessons, available amenities and face covering requirements.
- Stay home if you are or could be sick… even if it is a powder day. It stinks to miss a day of skiing, but it’s worse to miss an entire season. Assess your health before you go to the mountain. Our employees take daily wellness checks and have to stay home if they are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. We all need to stay healthy to stay skiing and riding!
- Ski or ride mid-week. Weekends and holidays are generally the busiest times at Mt. Ashland. Try skiing mid-week for a more distanced experience with fewer people.
- Be flexible. Local and state public health regulations can change rapidly, and we will comply with those regulations.
- Wear a face covering and adhere to all physical distancing requirements. We all have a responsibility to protect ourselves and each other this season and every season. Plus, we have to follow certain rules to stay open. So, bring a mask, keep it up over your nose, and let’s work together to be the reason we have a season!

Tight-fitting face coverings (entirely covering both the nose and mouth) must be worn around the chairlifts, indoors, and when physical distancing is not possible. If we notice you are not properly wearing a mask or wearing an improper mask, we will request that you fix the problem twice. If we have to remind you a third time this season, we will ask that you leave the premises and you will not be invited back until next season.
