Aspen Snowmass COVID-19 Update

March 23, 2021 Update – While Pitkin County is returning to Orange level restrictions effective Wednesday, March 24, all ASC restaurants remain at the Yellow level under the 5-Star Variance.We must all continue to be vigilant and practice the Five Commitments of Containmentfor the rest of the season.

All Aspen Skiing Company restaurants, both on and off the mountains have received the 5-Star Variance due to our meticulous attention to health and safety protocols. We are now able to increase our indoor capacity to 50%, though truth be told, it’s deck season here at Aspen Snowmass. We still recommend preordering meals and taking advantage of expanded outdoor seating on decks, in open air tents and in public spaces for dining. Tables are limited to two household use only and no group larger than 10 people. Use online ordering and Qless technology available on the Aspen Snowmass App to minimize wait times and have the best experience. Click here for the most up to date information.

In addition we have launched free testing for our employees through the remainder of the season to increase our ability to manage employee health and minimize potential spread in the resort.

Pitkin County will maintain the Public Health Order forbidding gatherings of more than 10 people from no more than 2 households. This impacts dining, lodging and carpooling is discouraged. Skiing with friends is fine, but please maintain social distancing throughout the day.

Pitkin County Traveler Responsibility Code
Effective Friday, March 5 Pitkin County will no longer require an affidavit or negative test prior to visiting. Instead, visitors will be asked to sign an agreement to abide by CDC guidelines when in the County, and a negative test before traveling to the area is not required, though it is still advised for all travel per the CDC. We want our community to thrive and ask guests to arrive healthy, enjoy all we have to offer, and practice the Five Commitments of Containment while here.

Operational Health Protocols
We have developed a company-wide playbook to implement new procedures and policies across all our winter operations, lifts, ski school, mountain dining, rental, retail, parking and more. Our restaurants are adapting to give you opportunities to dine safely with your group. Mobile food ordering will still be offered for contactless grab and go options on our on-mountain restaurants. In addition, Ruthie's on Aspen Mountain will be open as a warming hut with restrooms to accommodate guests. Operational changes may occur before or during your visit based on restrictions as mandated by county health agencies. Our priority is your safety and we’ll strive to keep timely updates on changes here.

Touchless Technology
To take full advantage of the touchless experience, please visit your account portal before your arrival and download the Aspen Snowmass App. This will allow you to sign waivers, use the pickup boxes at the base of each mountain for ticket redemption, order meals online and more.

Community/Guest Responsibility
While we will do everything possible to provide a safe experience, each of you has a responsibility to do the same. Both the City of Aspen and Town of Snowmass Village have mandatory face mask zones in place, that encompass most of the business and residential areas, including Gondola Plaza at the base of Aspen Mountain, the Snowmass Mall and Base Village and the transit hub/base area at Aspen Highlands. Masks are required to be worn over your nose and mouth, in lift lines and while riding lifts, while inside and in congested spaces at all mountain and base area facilities; social distancing remains part of life for now. We are at high altitude and our hospitals have limited facilities, so, please, if you are sick, at risk, or unwilling to follow guidelines around mask wearing, hygiene, and distancing, we ask that you save your visit for another time. Please follow the five commitments of containment and visit Pitkin County's website for the latest information and on Covid 19 in our area.
