Colorado ski areas not included in state, county gathering bans

Colorado ski areas not included in state, county gathering bans

As the coronavirus continues to spread across the state, Gov. Jared Polis announced Friday a ban on gatherings of more than 250 people. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock followed by closing city venues until mid-April.

In Eagle, Pitkin and Garfield counties, stricter bans were already in place that limited gatherings of more than 50 people. Notably, these bans only apply to events and do not impact normal ski area operations.

“Event” does not include activities that are primarily individual or occur in small groups or in non-congregate settings, such as places of employment, restaurants, or primarily small-group sports like skiing, as long as social distancing occurs, particularly in areas where congregating in groups is unavoidable, such as lift lines of certain areas of restaurants open to the public.”

But, several ski areas have canceled events that were planned on their respective mountains. Check individual resorts for a full list of their closures.
