Face coverings are required to access the mountain and in all parts of operations. To allow for physical distancing, PCMR is managing access to their mountains through a reservation system that prioritizes pass holders and by limiting lift ticket sales. They have re-imagined the on-mountain dining and ski and ride school experience to help keep guests safe.
