On-Mountain

COVID-19 Information

We're committed to delivering a fun and safe experience this winter. Please review this information in advance of your arrival to the resort so you'll know exactly what to expect on the slopes. 

Please note that face coverings are required in all public indoor and outdoor areas at the resort.

Safety Practices & Operational Changes

  • Face coverings are required for all guests and team members in all public indoor and outdoor areas at the resort, unless actively skiing downhill or actively eating.

    Please follow CDC recommendations and pertinent executive orders from the State of Maine. Face coverings should be dry and unsoiled, have two or more layers, completely cover the nose and mouth, and fit snugly against the face. While indoors, this will most likely necessitate using a separate mask from the one worn while skiing.

    • Opening day will be based on when we are able to offer top-to-bottom skiing with sufficient trail and lift capacity to operate safely.
    • We will initially open to passholders only. As we're able to expand terrain offerings, we plan to add access for day tickets as well.
    • As always, early-season information regarding conditions and skier services will be available on the Mountain Report.
    • Face coverings will be required while in all lift lines and while riding lifts.
    • Lift line layouts will be adjusted to allow spacing between lanes.
    • Guests will be asked to self-group and load the chair with their traveling party. Lift attendants will not require guests to ride a chairlift with people they do not know.
    • Singles will be loaded separately from existing parties, on a limited basis to allow spacing on chairs.
    • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) gates at chairlifts will allow contactless direct-to-lift access for all passholders and lift ticket holders.
    • We have added one weekend to the Mini Runner, River Runner, 8 Peaks and Junior Professional programs. 
    • We have adjusted daily program schedules as follows: 
      • GACP - Drop-off and pick-up will be slopeside at Barker, and programming will run 8:30AM to 12:30PM.
      • River Runners, 8 Peaks and Junior Professionals - Drop-off and pick-up will be slopeside at White Cap, and programming will run 9AM (8:45 drop-off) to 1PM.
      • Mini Runners - Drop-off and pick-up will be slopeside at South Ridge, and programming will run 8:45AM (8:30 drop-off) to 12PM.
    • Lunch will not be included in these programs. 
    • We will have dedicated indoor areas around the resort for warm-up and bathroom breaks. Each group will have scheduled times and locations for their indoor breaks.
    • As much as conditions permit, groups will remain outdoors. Please dress accordingly.
    • Children will be required to wear masks at all times, except while eating.
    • Children ages 7 and under will need to ride the chairlift with an adult. Please be aware that this adult may not always be their coach. 
    • Reservations will be required for all lessons
    • Children's class sizes for Mini Munchkins, Mogul Munchkins, and Mogul Meisters will have a 5:1 student to coach ratio to keep groups small. 
    • We have added new private clinic options for families to allow siblings or parents and children to take lessons together.
    • We will have dedicated indoor areas around the resort for warm-up and bathroom breaks. In order to minimize the number of breaks required, we encourage children under the age of 4 to enroll in half-day lessons.
    • As much as conditions permit, groups will remain outdoors. Please dress accordingly.
    • We will stagger lunch times to allow for social distancing in lunch spaces.
    • Children will be required to wear masks at all times, except while eating.
    • Unless rentals are needed, lesson check-in and pick-up will be outdoors. Bags will not be allowed.
    • Children ages 7 and under will need to ride the chairlift with an adult. Please be aware that this adult may not always be their coach. 
    • In following guidelines on gathering limits, no major events are planned for the winter season. 
    • We still plan to hold fireworks and other small-scale events, which will be added to the events calendar throughout the season.
