This article is part of our Tip of the Week series. Look for a new tip every Friday until Opening Day – Saturday, December 5! Please review our COVID-19 Operations Plan and other helpful information at

Please treat your vehicle as your lodge this winter!

In Phase 3 Operations, the lodges will NOT be open for guests to warm up, eat, or hang out at any time. All services will be outdoors only, including the snowsports school, ticket office, rental shop, ski shop, food service, and bar. Please read the Phased Operations Plan for more detailed information.

The Fish Creek Lodge locker level will only be open only for guests to actively gear up or use restrooms while wearing an appropriate face covering. Guests are expected to spend less than five minutes indoors. Lingering will not be tolerated, and guests will be asked to leave. All belongings must be stored inside your locker. If you do not have a locker, treat your vehicle as your locker and gear up appropriately.

Portable restroom units will be located in the parking lot and at the Hooter Chairlift loading terminal. Three outdoor tent stations at the base area will have heaters and limited seating. The Great Room seating area will be closed.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We all want to enjoy the entire winter safely on the slopes and riding the chairlifts!
