While there have been no reported cases of coronavirus in Mono County or Inyo County, Mammoth Mountain, CA are continuing to closely monitor the situation, and are working with local health and government officials to assess any necessary changes to business operations. As of now, there continues to be no plan to close the mountain.

However, while there are no plans to close the mountain, the resort are proactively taking additional steps with guest and employee safety front of mind and they are implementing the following:

  • Gondola cabins will be loaded at 50% capacity and regularly disinfected
  • MMSA and ESTA Shuttle Busses will be loaded at 50% capacity with no standing permitted at this time
  • No “in-stay” cleaning services in our lodging properties for the immediate future
  • Reduce seating capacity in our lodges by eliminating some chairs and tables to allow for social distancing
  • Continue to train managers to watch for symptoms among their employees

Other action already being taken by the resort:

  • Additional hand sanitization stations have been added in highly trafficked locations
  • Increased frequency of disinfection and cleaning of public restrooms and high-touch indoor areas, such as bathrooms, food halls, kitchen surfaces, door handles, tables, restaurants, bars, and lesson and rental check-in counters, and communal computer workstations
  • Employees who appear symptomatic have been asked to stay home
  • We are making changes to our food and beverage procedures and offerings
  • We have changed our lift loading procedures to allow for social distancing and for guests to choose their own groupings
  • In accordance with Governor Newsom’s latest guidance, we are canceling select events

Resorts across the country are taking precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, WY announced today they will be reducing tram and gondola capacity, and yesterday Aspen revealed they will be amending their lift-loading procedures to offer guests the option of riding alone.
