WINTER OPERATING PLAN

We want to assure everyone that our focus is on an environment that is safe for everyone. In order to comply with the current restrictions and mandates, there will be some changes that require cooperation from all. We hope everyone will be kind and patient with our staff and other guests as we all go through this challenging time together.

Due to the latest COVID-19 mandates, we can offer dine-in service at 50% capacity at our restaurant facilities. Take-out orders will still be available!

At this time, Blue Knob has no plans to require skiers or snowboarders to make a reservation for slope use, however, there are some protocols that have to be adhered to. Our current winter operating plan is as follows:

  • Blue Knob encourages on-line ticket and rental purchases to promote touchless transactions.
  • All lessons must be reserved at least 24 hours in advance by calling 814-239-1006.
  • Anyone participating in lessons is required to have their temperature taken. Group class sizes may be restricted.
  • Snow tubing sessions must be reserved in advance by calling 814-239-5111.
  • We are advising our guests that, due to existing state restrictions and mandates, there will be limited capacity (50%) at all indoor facilities. Guests should expect to spend more time outdoors or at their vehicles to change, eat and/or stay warm.
  • Outdoor “porta-potties” will be available outside the Summit Lodge.
  • Guests will use designated entrances/exits in the Summit Lodge.
  • Due to reduced capacity, no outside food or beverages may be brought to the Summit Lodge.
  • Food operations in the Summit Lodge will be limited to 50% capacity for dine-in or you may use the  “Grab N’ Go” window on the Summit Lodge deck.
  • Alcohol can only can be served for on-premises consumption when in the same transaction as a meal.
  • Installation of plexiglass dividers at point of sales locations will increase social distancing
  • We will be ramping up cleaning & disinfecting efforts in all areas of the resort.
  • All employees will be given a temperature check at the start of every shift.
  • Hand sanitation stations will be available throughout the Summit Lodge.
  • Mask wearing and social distancing is required in all facilities, lift lines and on chairlifts.
  • Unless skiers/riders are from the same household or have traveled together, they must ride the chairlift as a single.
  • Groups will be scheduled at staggered arrival times to increase distancing.
  • Blue Knob will not allow the safety and well-being of our guests and employees to be compromised, nor will we allow our licenses and/or certifications to be jeopardized by willful non-compliance. Our employees and security will work together to ensure guests are following guidelines. Guests who do not comply with COVID-19 restrictions will be asked to leave.

We understand that many of the restrictions are an inconvenience, however, we must ask everyone to follow them. These procedures  are not comprehensive and may be limited or modified at any time due to changing circumstances.
