Mountain High Resorts is committed to ensuring the Health and Safety of our guests and employees. This includes following guidelines and regulations from Federal, State, and Local agencies with regard to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Due to the changing nature of the public health emergency and changing recommendations from public health agencies, Mountain High's policies, and procedures related to mitigating the risk of disease and transmission will likely change over time, with little or no notice.
