The National Ski Areas Association supports a thoughtful return to outdoor winter recreation. An advisory group of ski industry leaders developed the Ski Well, Be Well operational best practices based on scientific guidelines from experts. These practices can be adapted to each ski area’s unique operation, and can be scaled according to the appropriate local COVID-19 response.

Your health and safety, and that of all our guests, employees and communities, is what we value most, and is the guiding influence for these best practices.
