At Ski.com, we’re here to shoot you straight. We know that traveling in the time of COVID-19 is far from simple. Our 65+ Mountain Travel Experts understand that competing passes, such as the Ikon Pass and Epic Pass both have their own unique, umbrella policies regarding mountain operations, and sometimes, it’s all a bit hard to digest. This is exactly why we’ve kept a seat at the table, working with our partners to craft updated policies that prioritize guest safety this winter so you can stay safe, healthy and stoked. Check out Ski.com’s COVID-19 page for more info on how we are working to keep you safe from the novel coronavirus.

What we’ve done here is compile an A-Z, location-based COVID-19 directory that explains policies and reservation systems in their entirety so that you can make the best decision on where to ski this winter season based on the current travel conditions and amended resort operations.
