COVID-19 Updates

Updated as of 8/12/2020.

Dear Snowmass Friends, Locals, Family and Guests,

Snowmass is reopening. It is our collective responsibility to keep our community safe as we reopen. Please review our visitor guidelines here and below so you know what to expect in Snowmass this summer.

COVID-19 has impacted all of our ways of life and our thoughts are with those who have been impacted. Pitkin County Public Health and CDPHE are closely monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak and continue to do so. However, we in Snowmass Village are in a strong position to safely reopen our community. Things may look and feel a little bit different, but we look forward to welcoming you to Snowmass this summer.



Snowmass hotels and lodging properties are open and accepting reservations. All hotels are operating under safety guidelines and distancing practices, but are open at 100% capacity. Visit www.gosnowmass.com/lodging to view and book lodging in Snowmass.

Restaurants are open with safety procedures, including seating in groups of 8 or less, tables 6’ apart both indoors and outdoors, and mandatory masks for staff and guests (when not seated). Many restaurants are offering takeout and delivery. Bars remain closed.

Retail stores are open with safety procedures, including limited capacity and mandatory masks for staff and customers. Many stores are offering call-head curbside service.

Outdoor recreation is abundant and encouraged. Snowmass has 90+ miles of hiking and biking trails in the Village and is at the heart of the newest IMBA Gold-Level Ride Center. Day camps, outfitters/guides and recreation centers are open.

On-mountain activities opened on June 21, with safety procedures in place. This includes the Elk Camp Gondola and Elk Camp Chairlift, and Snowmass Bike Park, as well as most adventures in the Lost Forest including the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster, Treeline Trial Challenge Course and Rugged Ascent Climbing Wall.

The Snowmass events calendar has shifted this summer to adhere to public health orders. The Snowmass Rodeo, Snowmass Free Concert Series, JAS Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience, Drishti Beats Yoga & Music Festival, Ragnar Relay, and other large-scale events will not take place this year. Instead, special activations such as the Artisan Market, Movies Under the Stars, and Social Saturdays will take place throughout the summer. In addition, Snowmass Tourism is creating a series of summer long self-guided experiences – activities guests can do at any time, at their own pace – including an Art Walk, Discovery Trail Interpretive Hikes, and Snowmass Mountain Mission. See www.gosnowmass.com/events for details.

Dining al fresco is next-level in Snowmass, with an abundance of picnic tables and scenic spots around the Village. Grab food from one of the 30+ restaurants in the Village, and bring it to Fanny Hill or any of Snowmass’ scenic picnic spots, to experience nature’s patio with an unbeatable view.

Health & Safety Guidelines

To keep our community safe and open, all residents and visitors must adhere to the Five Commitments of Containment:

  1. I will maintain 6 feet of distance from anyone not in my household.
  2. I will wash my hands often.
  3. I will cover my face in public.
  4. I will stay home when I am sick.
  5. I will seek testing immediately and self-report if I experience symptoms.

To be responsible while in Snowmass, please note:

Social distancing and face masks are mandatory in Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs. Snowmass Village has specific mask zones, where masks are required both inside and outside. 

No more than 10 people may gather together in public or at home. Permitted events may host up to 50 people, and summer camps may host up to 25 kids.

Testing is available to all. If you feel any symptoms of COVID-19 while in Snowmass, please call Aspen Valley Hospital for an appointment: 970.279.4111.

We Look Forward to Welcoming you

When you enter the Snowmass community, please protect it, keep it safe, and treat it as your own. We look forward to seeing you in Snowmass soon.

If you are visiting Snowmass and/or Colorado and believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 and start showing symptoms (fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath), follow the steps below:

  • Stay inside your lodging/residence: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 may be able to isolate at their lodging/residence during their illness. You should restrict activities outside your lodging/residence, except for getting medical care.
  • Avoid public areas: Avoid public areas as much as possible.
  • Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
  • Practice social distancing (staying 6ft apart from other individuals) to decrease the risk of transmission to save lives.
  • Separate yourself from other people. As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
  • Call ahead before visiting a doctor. Call your medical provider or a nurse line first and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

Pitkin County Coronavirus Hotline: 970-429-6186

*At-risk groups are older individuals and those with serious chronic medical conditions, who should take extra precautions.

With the situation evolving rapidly, we encourage the traveling public to follow any guidance offered by the CDC and local and state public health authorities (see above for links to resources).


Take Simple Disease Prevention Measures: 

• Frequently and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, or use your inner elbow or sleeve.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Stay home if you are sick, and keep your children home if they are sick. Talk to your employer about working from home if necessary.
• Practice social distancing (staying 6ft apart from other individuals) to decrease the risk of transmission to save lives.
• Clean surfaces in your home, and personal items such as cell phones, using regular household products.
• Wear a mask when performing essential tasks outside the home. 


Stay Informed and Up to Date: 

  • One of the best places to get the most up-to-date “real-time” information on COVID-19 in Colorado is by calling The Colorado Health Emergency Hotline: 1-877-462-2911 or by visiting CDPHE’s COVID-19 recommendations page.
  • People who have general questions about coronavirus disease 2019, can call CO HELP at 303-389-1687 or 1-877-462-2911, for answers in many languages, or email COHELP@RMPDC.org for answers in English.
  • Individuals who are symptomatic can call CDPHE’s general epidemiologist at 303-692-2700 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. seven days a week.
  • If you have upcoming travel plans, visit the CDC’s Website for the latest travel information.
  • PLEASE rely on the official, trusted sources for information and not secondhand knowledge. Rumors and bad information spread faster than any disease out there, which only causes distress.
