Park City Mountain (Vail) and Deer Valley Ski Protocols

Parkites rejoice! The ski season is upon us. With this being a unique year, we wanted to provide a quick rundown of protocols for our two local resorts. Both Park City Mountain (Vail) and Deer Valley Ski Resort will be following all City, County and State Health and Safety Guidelines.

Park City Mountain Resort (Vail) opened on 11/20/20. All lifts and terrain are open like any normal ski season, weather allowing. There will be no night skiing this winter season.

Vail has implemented a reservation system for skiing this year. Every skier must make a reservation for every day they ski. No days are booked out yet but you should plan on booking early for the holidays and weekends.

Mask must be worn at all times. Vail will be adding temporary restrooms throughout the resort due to the reduced capacity at each restroom facility.


Priority reservations are now open. This season, Pass Holders get priority access to reservations and exclusive Early Season access.

Deer Valley Ski Resort will open December 5th.The plan is to open all terrain as allowed and to be open the entire ski season. Unlike Park City Mountain Resort, no ski reservations are currently required. However, for daily tickets, the skier cap will be significantly reduced this year. This cap will not affect passholders. Also, Deer Valley ski Resort will not be selling same day tickets at the window, all tickets will need to be purchased online and then picked up at the window.

Masks will be required everywhere, except when dining in the restaurants. Additionally, you will not be allowed to change clothes in the lodges. You must arrive at the resort in ski gear.

Only private half day ski lessons will be offered this season.
