MSIA – Michigan Ski Area Pandemic Guide 2020-2021

Without a doubt, 2020 has been a year of change.  Dealing with the safety of guests and staff during a pandemic has been a top priority of ski areas across Michigan as they prepare to open.  Indoor capacity limits, face covering rules, new outdoor dining options, new lift queue configurations, and social distancing rules are all changes that ski areas are making as they prepare to open. This season, the Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA) is urging skiers and riders to “Know before you go,” by checking the website of the ski area you are planning to visit to familiarize yourself with their COVID-19 protocol.

“Some ski areas are going to contactless lift ticket sales, others are bringing in food trucks for outdoor dining, changing the rental department around to aid in social distancing and limiting class sizes for ski and snowboard lessons,” says Steve Kershner, MSIA chairman and director of snow sports at Shanty Creek Resort.

One rule that will be consistent across all Michigan ski areas is the requirement to wear CDC-recommended face coverings in all indoor spaces, except when seated to eat or drink, and outdoors when 6 feet of physical distance cannot be maintained – such as the base lodge staging area, shuttles, lift lines, while loading and riding a lift, or entering an indoor facility.

“The important thing to remember is that we are doing this for the wellbeing of our guests and our staff. We want everyone to be able to head out and enjoy the slopes safely,” Kershner adds.
