Winter Employment Information:
Winter is right around the corner and we are gearing up for another season at the mountain. We are currently working on updates to our procedures around the resort, and some things may look a little different than they have in past. 49 Degrees North has every intention to open in November and run our normal operations schedule for the 2020/21 winter season. We are working with state & regional agencies to make sure we will be following all applicable guidelines. Our priority remains the health and well-being of our employees, guests and community, and we are prepared to adjust where needed to provide not only a safe environment, but the best possible experience for our guests and staff.

Here's what we currently know:

- We will likely be adjusting indoor spaces to reduce the number of people able to gather in a space, and this will mean more time outdoors for our guests.

- We are implementing enhanced cleaning procedures

- To keep our resort and school healthy and open, we will ask that our staff commit to taking measures such as wearing a face mask, frequent hand washing and keeping socially distant when possible.

We are continuing to monitor best practices within all aspects of the ski industry in order to keep everyone safe while providing a great mountain experience. Things will continue to evolve over the coming months so please stay tuned.
