Skibowl and Covid-19 - Know Before You Go

We’re so excited to open operations for the summer! As we focus on the reopening of Mt. Hood Skibowl Adventure Park we are so looking forward to welcoming our guests and employees with safety and well-being of all at the forefront of all our planning efforts. As we navigate through this unprecedented time as responsibly as we can, we have implemented a number of new safety measures based on guidance from health agencies, including federal, state and local authorities.

For all guests, there are 6 key things to know before arriving at Mt. Hood Skibowl:

  • If you are sick, Please Stay Home!!!
  • Daily capacity is limited. To manage inventory and limit unnecessary contact, we are requiring all initial tickets be purchased online, prior to arrival.
  • Face coverings are REQUIRED! Yes, Really!
  • Spaced parking. We ask that you leave an empty parking space between you and other vehicles not in your party.
  • Physical distancing practices including physically-distanced queues and physical barriers
  • An increased focus on disinfecting and sanitation processes using both chemical and UV-C lights, including the addition of hand sanitizer stations throughout the park in key locations

COVID-19 Warning

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, other guests, and employees. You must follow all posted instructions while visiting Mt. Hood Skibowl.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By visiting Mt. Hood Skibowl you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure of COVID-19

Changes to Tickets & Passes

Due to limited capacities, we are requiring all tickets be sold in advance using our online eCommerce program. You can find that site by clicking on this link:

Buy Online

In order to effectively manage inventory, you will find that we’ve reduced daily ticket options to Daily Passes and much fewer individual ticket options. Our Premium Attractions (Freefall Bungee Jumping, Zip Lines, Aerial Park) require the purchase of a Daily Pass. Individual Daily Tickets are available for Mtn Biking, Indy and Sprint Karts, Alpine Slides, as well as Horseback Riding.

Guest Parking & Skibowl West Entrance

We ask that you leave an empty parking space between you and other vehicles not in your party. Please follow instructional signage as you enter our parking lots.

The entrance to Skibowl West has been rerouted to lessen contact with other patrons and provide one-way directional travel to ticket windows ad kiosks. Additionally, the main entrance steps have been divided into one-way directional travel to reduce crowding. Please pay attention to directional signage as you arrive at Skibowl West.

Limited Contact

Following guidance from federal, state and local government along with the medical authority regarding prevention measures, we have made some adjustments that include limited-contact with Guest Services to ensure a responsible and enjoyable environment for everyone.

  • Advance Online Ticket Sales: Daily ticket capacities are limited and therefore we are requiring all initial ticket sales be completed online, in advance prior to arrival.
  • Face Coverings: All Guests ages 2 and older are required to wear face coverings when visiting Mt. Hood Skibowl. All face coverings should:
    • Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the guest to remain hands-free
    • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
    • Be secured with ties or ear loops
    • Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable
    • Guests must provide their own disposable or reusable face covering.
      • o We do have masks and other face coverings for sale through our retail shop.
  • Physical Barriers: Physical barriers have been added in select places where it is difficult to maintain strict physical distancing guidelines. These areas will likely be around Point of Sale locations to help ensure proper distances or barriers exist.
  • Contactless Transactions: Wherever possible we have implemented processes to avoid personal contact with items such as cash, credit cards, food and retail goods. We have self-serve kiosks for ticket fulfillment and ticket windows that provide additional barriers to interactions and contact. We recommend the use cashless payment options whenever possible during your visit to Mt. Hood Skibowl, including debit cards, credit cards, Skibowl gift cards, etc.

Physical Distancing and Daily Capacity Measures

Managing the number of guests visiting Mt. Hood Skibowl on a given day has been a major consideration as we implement physical distancing guidelines. One of the ways to do that is by limiting the number of guests on a daily basis. Again, tickets are limited, so please plan ahead. Additional measures include:

  • Signage: Directional signage has been installed to assist guests to responsibly move throughout the resort. Additionally, ground and handrail markings will help promote proper physical distancing when queuing is needed.
  • Training: We are also training our employees to engage with guests and promote physical distancing guidelines in common areas and queues.

Cleanliness and Sanitization

We’ve increased cleaning and disinfection throughout the resort, especially in common and high-traffic areas. Mt. Hood Skibowl has made a large investment in the latest technology of UV Lights to disinfect quickly and efficiently. Additionally, hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the resort and guests are highly encouraged to use these while visiting.

About These Measures

As part of these efforts you may see additional changes to our offerings as things are constantly evolving.  Though it may be different from the last time you visited, these new measures are designed to offer a the best experience in a responsible way.

We understand that these times are challenging and we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we navigate as responsibly as we can. Together, we can find new ways to have fun while being diligent to maintain proper physical distancing.
