Ski Smart This SeasonThings are a little different this year, so before you pack up your gear and head to your favourite ski area, you’ll want to be prepared.
Based on guidance from experts, we’ve developed some best practices for both skiers and resorts to help you get back on the slopes with minimal fuss. These practices will be adapted to each ski area's unique operation, and scaled according to the appropriate local COVID-19 response to ensure a thoughtful, low risk return to outdoor winter recreation.
What you need to know before you go:
Following public health recommendations, this is not the time to be travelling for a destination ski trip. Skiing and snowboarding are permitted outdoor activities that are operating under strict COVID protocols. There is over 30 ski areas in Alberta, so there’s one close by!
On the slopes it's important to stay warm and dry. Dress in layers and make sure your outer layer is waterproof. Warm socks and gloves are a must, too. Safety is important, so remember your goggles and helmet. And don't forget your sunscreen - it might feel cold outside, but protection from the sun can be just as important as any of the other elements.
