As the Coronavirus(COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve the health and well-being of our community of employees, guests and neighbors is of the utmost importance to all of us at Dodge Ridge.

Our focus is to mitigate risk and concern with a strong focus on social distancing, cleanliness, and good hygiene. These modifications to our operations reflect the recommendations of federal, state and local health officials.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity to ski and ride on the hundreds of skiable acres on our mountain, to breath the fresh mountain air and rejuvenate in nature.

Below is the list of the preventative actions we have in place:

  • We are monitoring the situation daily by staying in contact with the latest advisories from our federal, state and local health officials and will further adjust operations in support of the well-being of our employees, guests and communities as needed.
  • We are continuing to follow the most updated hygienic precautions from health officials.
  • We are increasing our communication and signage on proper handwashing techniques for employees as well as guests.
  • We have developed a communication and signage plan on how to best maintain social distancing.
  • We are limiting the capacity of our indoor areas to no more than 10 people at a time.
  • We have suspended our Food and Beverage, Snowsports school and rental operations.
  • We have modified our reservation cancellation policy for our guests concerned about travelling.
  • We are strictly enforcing our existing employee well-being policy to stay home and consult with a medical professional if feeling unwell.
  • We recommend that all visitors thoughtfully weigh their choice about travelling and heed the recommendations set forth by the President.
  • We recommend guests bring their own personal hand sanitizer, wipes, tissues and writing devices.
  • We recommend guests check our website and social media for continued updates.

All of us at Dodge Ridge are grateful for your understanding and patience during this time. We wish you all well and send comfort to those that may be impacted by the coronavirus.
