“In our commitment to creating a safe environment for our community (employees, volunteers, members, passport holders, students and guests), we require that everyone 12 and over be fully vaccinated on site,” the plan says.

Bill Creighton, CEO of Chicopee, says that while the ski resort will look and feel different, the changes will be made in an effort to have a safe and healthy season.

“We will continue to work closely with public health to ensure the well-being of our community by complying with COVID-19 regulations and implementing industry best practices,” he said.

The opening day of the ski jump is currently December 18, while it is scheduled to close on March 20, 2022.

The ski slope also requires everyone in the chalet to wear a face mask except when eating and encourages guests to do the same while skiing or snowboarding.

An important note for those purchasing items such as season passes and memberships, in the event of a season cancellation or delay, the resort will say it will not offer refunds but will postpone the purchase to the following season.

In addition, the resort does not offer credit for a two-week break in the season, but credit for lost time when a break is longer than two weeks.
