2020-2021 WINTER EXPERIENCE
WHAT TO EXPECT
This season things will look a little different as we all make the health & safety of our guests and employees a top priority. Covid-19 has changed many things about our daily lives and there will be impacts on the mountain this winter as well, but the skiing & riding that exhilarates us each year will stay the same. We are scheduled to open on November 20th and could not be more excited to welcome you back. We’ve been busy formalizing our plan for this year and want to keep you informed. While a few things will change this season, what will never change is our slope side, ski in/ski out experience and our friendliness and commitment to ensure your stay at one of Steamboat’s original resorts is unforgettable.
MOUNTAIN ACCESS, TICKETS, PASSES AND RENTALS
Reservations for mountain access are not required for Steamboat pass holders at this time. In an effort to limit on-mountain capacity specifically during holiday and peak periods, Steamboat is currently not offering stand-alone lift tickets. However, Ptarmigan guests who book prior to November 2nd will be able to purchase a three-day lift ticket (or more) through The Ptarmigan Inn as a preferred partner in the Steamboat VIP program. Hotel guests will also enjoy a 20% discount on your equipment rentals at Christy Sports, located downstairs from the hotel lobby.
GONDOLA, CHAIRLIFTS AND LIFT LINES
To keep guests safe, Steamboat is expanding the mazes to accommodate for physical distancing. They are also running reduced capacity of the gondola and on chairlifts. Guests will load chairlifts with related parties (guests skiing and riding together) as groups; unrelated parties who wish to ride with an open space between themselves and another party will be allowed to do so upon request. The Gondola cabins will be cleaned periodically throughout the day and, at the end of each operating day, with an Electrostatic Disinfectant sprayer.
Steamboat Springs is the crown jewel of winter activities and The Ptarmigan Inn can assist you with your planning. Guests can enjoy cross country skiing at the Haymaker Nordic Center, guided snowshoe tours, dogsledding, hot air balloon rides and more. For more information, email us at Ptom@ThePtarmigan.com
