Vail Resorts has joined the growing list of American institutions lifting its COVID mask mandates.
In a statement released on Monday, Vail announced that guests at its New England-based resorts (Stowe, Okemo, Mount Snow, Wildcat, Attitash, Crotched, and Sunapee) will no longer be required to wear face coverings in gondolas or indoor spaces, unless required by local public health or CDC COVID-19 designations. Guest proof of vaccination is still required for cafeteria-style dining establishments.
“We continue to review our safety policies in accordance with the evolving nature of the pandemic,” the statement read. “Based on the declining rates of COVID-19 and changes to public health guidance, this new policy means guests are no longer required to wear face coverings at our Northeast resorts at this time, including in restaurants, lodging properties, retail and rental locations, and base areas.”
Face coverings are still required on buses and shuttles per guidance from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
