Know Before You Go: COVID-19 Resource Center
For the 2021-22 ski season, Ski New Hampshire is striving to provide you information about our members' operations amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of our guests, employees and members of our community is our highest priority, and we want you to have the resources you need to make informed travel decisions this season.
Been vaccinated? That's great! However, some of our ski areas and other local businesses are still asking people to wear face coverings and to socially distance at some locations on-site and/or in certain situations. Please see our "Links to Resort COVID-19 Protocols Webpages" section towards the bottom of this page. We thank you for being respectful of the need to continue to use caution and keep everyone safe. Here is the CDC's guidance for people who have been vaccinated.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
- First and foremost - KNOW BEFORE YOU GO! Resort links are below, as well as further information regarding outdoor & indoor operations, masks, and vaccinations.
- Bring a mask (and if you’re with kids, be sure to bring one for each of them too!)
- Check out the resort’s plans and policies for boot bags. You may need to check your bag, store it in a designated area, or leave it in your car.
- Food & beverage locations like cafeterias, restaurants, and bars are more open and accessible this year, but there may still be some restrictions for any given location.
- Carry proof of vaccination in case a ski area requires it.

This season, outdoor operations will look much like they did prior to the pandemic.
- Chairlifts will most likely be loaded to capacity
- Unrelated parties will be able to ride the lift together
- Some enclosed carriers like gondolas and trams may have capacity restrictions, and you may be asked or required to wear a mask
- Masks will most likely be optional outside
- You can expect standard organization of lift lines, with no "ghost" lanes
- Please wear a mask if you are high-risk or if you feel uncomfortable
This season, indoor operations will vary depending on the ski area.
- Ski areas will follow all state and local public health regulations; in some cases, ski areas may have stricter protocols in place
- Many NH ski areas will require or strongly recommend that you wear a mask in some or all indoor locations
- Protocols are subject to change throughout the season
- Please follow all signage and requirements
- Ski areas may ask guests to wear masks indoors
- Masks may be required for children who are too young to be vaccinated
- If you wear a mask, make sure it is two layers of fabric and fits over your nose and mouth
While some ski areas are requiring vaccination for their employees, there are a handful requiring vaccinations for guests in specific areas of the ski area operation. Be sure to look at a ski area's website, social media or email marketing, or call ahead so you are prepared to show proof of vaccination.
