21/22 Winter COVID Policy
Last Updated December 28, 2021
Face Covering Policy:
As a reminder to all guests, we have a friendly but mandatory "wear a face covering in lift lines and around the base area" policy. It's up to all of our employees and guests to set a community example, by wearing face coverings, to keep each other safe and comfortable.
At RED we look to everyone, employees and guests, to talk and smile and wave and respect sensitivity and protection. There is no perfect answer to this as everyone has a responsibility.
We, as resort operators will continually remind everyone to take care of each other. It's what we do and it's what makes RED Mountain and Rossland such an amazing place to live, visit and meet new friends.
Gentle face covering reminders and respect for each other will keep the bull-wheels turning through another amazing ski season.
Thank you for doing your part this season,
RED Mountain Resort
Updated November 29, 2021
Over the past two weeks we have received questions from our members and the community about RED Mountain Resort’s vaccination policy for the upcoming season. Like you, we have been waiting for greater clarity from the Government of British Columbia, and the scope of the vaccination passport orders that were announced on August 23, 2021.
Now that these orders have been published, we want to share how they apply to RED Mountain Resort and to explain the additional vaccination requirements we have decided to implement to ensure the health and safety of everyone visiting our resort.
Provincial Vaccine Passport Orders:
Under the provincial vaccine passport orders, our guests are currently required to provide proof of vaccination in the following venues or activities and events:
- Dining at our restaurant, pub or bars (whether indoors or outdoors)
- When attending indoor events of 50 or more persons, such as weddings, conferences, group events, etc.
Proof of vaccination will be required using the BC digital vaccine card, alongside valid government-issued photo ID. For more information about how to obtain your BC digital vaccine card, please visit this link: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard.html. International visitors must show the proof of vaccination they used to enter Canada, alongside their passport for ID verification. Out of province visitors must show their provincially/territorially officially recognized vaccine record and Valid government photo ID.
The vaccine mandate described above applies to all guests age 12 and up. There are no exemptions allowed for medical, religious or other grounds.
RED Mountain Resort Policy:
As many of you know, RED Mountain Resort is one of the oldest ski hills in North America. Designed and built many years ago, the physical arrangement of our indoor spaces frequently overlap with each other or utilize smaller footprints. As a result of these unique features, we have decided that the best way to keep our guests safe is to mandate vaccinations for all guests entering our indoor spaces.
What this means for you is that guests age 12 and up are required to provide proof of vaccination to enter any indoor space at the resort, including:
- Rental Shops (There will be no outdoor rental area available)
- Retail store
- Locker Room
- Guest Services
- All Dining Facilities
Proof of vaccination must be provided using the BC digital vaccine card, alongside valid government-issued photo ID. International travellers may provide the proof of vaccination they used to enter Canada, alongside their passport for ID verification. RED Mountain Resort will not retain the vaccination status information of any of our guests.
Guests who are unable to be vaccinated for a reason protected by the BC Human Rights Code (including medical and religious exemptions) will be provided appropriate accommodation.
