The North Carolina ski and snowboard industry values and prioritizes the health and safety of its guests, staff and local communities. We demonstrate this commitment by implementing the following operating best practices for the 2020-21 winter season, or for as long as needed, scaled appropriately in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

North Carolina ski industry leaders from all six resorts established these foundational best practices according to scientific guidelines put forth by infectious disease experts, including the CDC and WHO. North Carolina ski areas will comply with additional federal, state and local regulations as they are implemented.

Snow sports are away for people to play in wide-open spaces, and to take advantage of the mental and physical health benefits of outdoor recreation. For decades, ski area owners and operators have managed skier numbers and safety in daily operations, collaborating with fellow industry experts to offer safe and memorable experiences. The North Carolina Ski Areas association is committed to providing outdoor recreation in ways that promote health and safety, and reduce the risk of infection.
