Cloth face coverings must be worn inside all Blue Mountain buildings, when in the lift line, and when unloading the chairlift. A full face helmet does not count as a face mask. We will have a limited supply of paper masks for purchase, but guests are encouraged to arrive with a mask. Tubes/neck gaiters work great in conjunction with a helmet.

In the event that you would need to access a ticketing counter for a pass or product issue, we will be adhering to the same distancing guidelines you see in your grocery store. You will need to remain 6 feet away from the person potentially in front of you. Distancing guidelines will be followed in all queuing areas. Face masks must be worn inside all buildings and while at ticket windows.
