Health & Safety Protocol

Visiting Sugarbush Resort

ALL guests coming to ski at Sugarbush must sign a one-time attestation with the state of Vermont. Your pass will not be activated until you complete this attestation. Ticket purchasers will sign this during the purchase process, but season pass holders must manually fill this out. Please do this as soon as possible. If you forget and need to do it day-of, please allow up to 30 minutes for processing.

Anyone entering the state of Vermont from another state must quarantine, either prior to arrival at their own home or once they reach Vermont, before coming to Sugarbush.

Residents of other states must adhere to the quarantine guidelines:

  • Travelers arriving to Vermont in a personal vehicle must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in their home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.
  • Travelers arriving to Vermont who have not completed a pre-arrival quarantine must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in a Vermont lodging establishment or with friends and family (travelers must stay in their quarantine location for the duration of quarantine other than to travel to and from a test site).
  • Exceptions to this apply only to those individuals who have been vaccinated, as long as 14 days have passed since receiving the second and/or final dose. 

Resort Safety Practices

We want to reassure you that nothing is more important than the health, safety and well-being of our guests and our staff at Sugarbush Resort. We abide by the highest level of standards, including industry best practices, state, and federal guidelines and are committed to the enhancement of these procedures to as we continue to prioritize the safety of our guests, employees, and community. With that in mind, we have implemented the following resort-wide policy:

Social Distancing

To encourage 6’ of social distancing at all times, we ask that skiers and riders plan to boot up in their car (there is no bag storage on the resort), actively space out on the chairlift and mountain, and spend as much time outdoors as possible. While these changes will present us with a unique looking season, the Sugarbush team will be here to help along the way, as along with prominent signage around the resort. The built-in protection of gloves, masks, and goggles that come naturally to us as skiers and riders is also a big plus. Of course, this will only work if we all follow the proper guidelines and stay committed to keeping our greater Sugarbush community safe.

Mask Usage

All guests must wear masks indoors and outdoors at all times unless seated for eating and drinking or working out in the fitness center or pool. This mask usage includes while skiing, in lift lines,  while riding on chairlifts, in the base areas and parking lots, and in the base lodges.

The proper mask is also important. Ski masks with nose or mouth holes do not meet the requirements. Buffs can be used as a mask but must be double layered.

Employee Safety Practices

We also take the health and safety of our staff to be of paramount importance. As we have worked diligently to help keep our resort staff and assets safe, secure and operable - we have implemented various levels of health & safety protocols for these key team members. 

  • We have written a COVID-19 Employee Health & Safety Policy following the CDC and State of Vermont Guidelines and Requirements, and have posted appropriate signage in all of our work areas.
  • We have posted notices on all entrances to all of our facilities stating entry will not be permitted to anyone exhibiting signs of respiratory illness.
  • All of our staff working on resort property have completed the mandatory Vermont Occupational Safety and Health or VOSHA COVID-19 Safety Training.  These same staff conduct a daily health & wellness screening, which includes a daily thermometer check.
  • We have staggered work shifts, lunches and breaks, and we are adhering to mask and 6’ social distancing requirements whenever possible.
  • Our staff are cleaning and disinfecting their own restrooms, common rooms, offices, vehicles and equipment on a daily (sometimes more frequently) basis, which they are documenting.  Our chemicals that we use are on the approved EPA COVID-19 Disinfectant List.
