Statement From Snowbird Reaffirming Season Readiness

Snowbird, UT - Snowbird is eager to open for skiing and riding on Monday, Nov. 30. We are focused on protecting the wellbeing of those who live, work, stay and play at Snowbird, and are doing everything we can to ensure a fun, full season.

Snowbird has coordinated with local leaders and officials from Salt Lake County, Salt Lake City, the U.S. Forest Service and others to ensure safe operations this summer and fall in preparation for the ski season. 

Guests can know they will have a great ski season at Snowbird with Operation Stay Safe. It is a thorough, adaptable plan that puts safety first, and includes enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols; limiting the number of tickets available and the requirement to pre-book experiences; the requirement that everyone wear facial coverings; physical distancing protocols across the mountain, hotels and restaurants; and lowered lift capacity for unrelated parties and a cap of 25 passengers on the Tram, which is how the Tram has operated since June. 

In addition to these efforts and key to a safe and fun season, Snowbird is actively managing the number of people at the resort at any given time through a parking management system which means guests can plan ahead with confidence, knowing they can come to Snowbird and have a safe and enjoyable experience. 

Snowbird worked with an independent ski resort planning company, SE Group, to determine the capacity at which all on the mountain are able to stay safe through appropriate physical distancing and we are managing the number of guests on the mountain through a free parking reservation system. The number of available parking reservations will be managed throughout the winter based on visitation and user patterns, combined with weather, conditions and the continued dynamics surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
