Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe in Nevada has released plans on how it will operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The resort has said that it will comply with applicable Nevada public health statutes.
There will be a cap on the number of people allowed in the resort at one time and it will be reopening in three phases.
Mike Pierce, Marketing Director at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe, told ABC News:
“Our initial phase is going to be season pass holders only, so no daily tickets will be available, it’ll just be lift service only. Phase two will be pretty much when we start reintroducing food and beverage into the lodge and possibly some lessons and things like that. By the time we’re in phase three, it’s pretty much normal operations.”
Non-season pass holders can expect to return during phase two, which has yet to be determined when exactly that will be. Resort access will be limited to season pass holders and people who purchase tickets online in advance. There will be no walk-up ticket sales.
Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will be spacing out lift lines in adherence to social distancing guidelines. Riders will be asked to load chairlifts only with those they arrived with, according to ABC News. Guests will not be required to ride with people they do not know.
Face masks will be “highly recommended,” according to Pierce.
Restaurant capacity will be reduced to 50%.
Regular disinfectant procedures and constant cleaning of high-touch indoor areas will be conducted, as well as providing multiple hand sanitizer locations throughout the resort, ABC News reports.
Opening day at Mt. Rose is still to be determined but resort staff say season pass holders can expect it to be sometime around early to mid-November.
