A-Basin Summer 2020 COVID-19 Guidelines
We welcome you to join us this summer at Arapahoe Basin, where physical distancing is natural. There are just a few, simple things we ask of you to help keep our guests, our staff and our community safe.
Follow on-site signage, stay apart from other groups, practice good hygiene, and have a face covering with you at all times. Tailgating in our parking lots is still strictly prohibited with no exceptions.
If you are using our free amenities, please be thoughtful of others around you when playing disc golf, hiking and mountain biking. Maintain physical distancing, wear a face covering when 6 feet of separation can’t be maintained, and continue to respect both the human and natural environment as you recreate.
See additional info specific to dining and the aerial adventure park, below. Thank you for your cooperation.
Health & Safety Precautions
The following guidelines are in alignment with requirements from Summit County, the State of Colorado, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Please consider your own health and stay home if you're not feeling well or are at high risk.
- A-Basin has adopted CDC guidelines including enhanced sanitation procedures designed to combat the transmission of COVID-19 for restrooms, door handles, counter tops, tables, chairs, benches and other high-touch surfaces.
- Lift lines have been re-designed to keep people 6 feet apart. No one will not be permitted to ride the lift with anyone not in their immediate party for scenic chairlift rides.
- Physical distancing will be enforced, as will the wearing of face coverings in designated areas and when guests can't maintain 6 feet of physical distancing such as check-in processes and aerial adventure park equipment training.
- Alcohol-based sanitizer will be available for guests and employees at convenient locations to ensure proper hygiene.
- All check-in procedures happen outside; visitors will not be permitted to enter the Guest Services office.
- Group activities such as guided yoga are limited to 6 registrants per event (7 total with the guide).
- These guidelines may change at any time as more information and instructions are provided by our public health and governmental partners.
Food & Beverage
Dining at the 6th Alley Bar & Grill and Black Mountain Lodge follows all Summit County health guidelines for restaurants. Ample outdoor seating is available at both establishments and indoor tables at the 6th Alley are 8 feet apart with no bar seating. Please wear a face covering until your food/drinks are served.
Aerial Adventure Park
You must bring a face covering and wear it during check in and check out, as well as during the training session and any time you cannot maintain physical distancing of 6 feet or more from those not in your immediate party.
The aerial adventure park will be operated so that no more than 5 people start the course every 20 minutes. For large related parties, accommodations will be made for those groups to start every 40 minutes. Only members of the same household will be allowed on the platforms at one time to promote appropriate physical distancing as guests move through the park.
Equipment will be sanitized between uses, including steam cleaning aerial adventure park harnesses and sanitizing climbing devices after each use. All participants and staff will be expected to wear face coverings during the check-in, set up and training processes.
All A-Basin employees received mandatory training on all executive orders, county health orders, and A-Basin’s COVID-19 pandemic response plan. Staff are required to adhere to all health and safety procedures including daily self-screening, physical distancing measures, PPE requirements, personal hygiene best practices, and cleaning and disinfection procedures.
Employees are being provided masks, are checked for signs and symptoms of illness every day when they arrive, and employee job roles were re-designed to minimize contact with each other and guests. All employees are encouraged to voice concerns or violations to Arapahoe Basin management, and are required to stay home or go home if feeling unwell.
