Different resorts require different types of reservations for lodging, parking and lift passes.

Have you secured all your needed reservations for the right days? 

All resorts have their own COVID protocols.

Along with winter gear, have you packed the right type of mask and reviewed the resorts' COVID guidelines for social distancing and lift usage? 

Food is available, but inside dining is limited.

Have you made a plan for where and when you will eat? And packed snacks in case it’s best to come back later in the day?
