Will Park City Mountain Resort Be Open For Skiing in 2020?
Yes! Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR) plans to open November 22, 2020. There are some changes to typical on-mountain operations due to COVID-19 this season. While we do our best to provide you with all of the details, we encourage you to check with Park City Mountain if you have any questions.
Changes to Mountain Operations
All guests will be required to wear face coverings in every part of the ski area. This includes loading and unloading chair lifts, riding chair lifts and gondolas, while inside buildings, and during ski and snowboard lessons. No one will be permitted on the mountain without a face covering.
Fortunately, the ski area is huge and makes social distancing pretty easy. Even with all of that wide-open space, Vail Resort is taking extra precautions and is requiring advance reservations for ski days with pass holders getting priority.
The early season is reserved for pass holders. Regular lift tickets will not be sold until December 8. Those without a pass are strongly encouraged to purchase lift tickets in advance to guarantee a spot on the mountain for the days they wish to ski. Same-day ticket sales are available online and through the mountain’s call centers, but are subject to availability.
All on-mountain restaurants will be open this season. The number of guests will be managed and layouts will be modified to allow for physical distancing.
Full-service bars will not be open.
Guests are encouraged to bring plenty of water and snacks due to this season’s limitations.
Physical Distancing on Chairlifts and Gondolas
Only related parties will be permitted to ride together in groups. Two singles may sit on opposite sides on a four-person lift and in gondola cabins; on a six-person lift, two singles or two doubles may sit on opposite sides.
