On July 9, Big Sky Resort announced that face masks would be required for all staff and guests at the resort. This announcement comes in the wake of rising Covid-19 cases nationwide. According to the new policy, all guests over the age of five are required to wear a face-covering in all indoor public spaces.
There are a few exceptions to this policy- for instance, guests are not required to wear masks when eating or drinking indoors (for obvious reasons) or when guests are recreating outdoors and are able to maintain a 6-foot distance from other guests who not in their immediate party. With that being said, masks will still be required outdoors when loading on and off chair lifts and when checking in at the golf course.
While this new policy may be an inconvenience for some, it ultimately will contribute to the overall health and well-being of all guests and hard-working staff at the resort. Furthermore, this policy will help Big Sky to safely remain open throughout the summer. The policy will remain in effect for an indefinite period of time. In their blog post, Big Sky states ” Understanding that no reasonable efforts can eliminate possibilities of a virus being transmitted, we remain committed to taking every step to help protect the safety of our team members and guests. The health and safety policies may be revised at any time.”
