Mountain are open for the 2020-21 ski season
As we move closer to the heart of the winter months, the closest ski area to Prince Rupert is making its plans for a start to the ski season, with Shames Mountain near Terrace recently outlining its COVID response plan, relaying the extensive measures that they will have in place for a ski season in a pandemic.
The document, which you can review here, provides a look into a number of areas including access to the Mountain, Riding the Lifts, how the Rental Shop, Snow School Retail and Ticket sales will work.
Also covered in the review is how on Mountain Dining will take place and what the Enhanced Safety protocols are.
Some of the elements that have in place will be the need for Face Coverings in all indoor spaces, base area, lift lines and while riding the lifts. The suspension of the Shames Express weekend shuttle this winter, contact tracing requirements, dedication towards Social Distancing and restrictions on access to the lodge in order to control the volume of traffic into the facility.
Towards the actual skiing Shames has a number of Season and Day Pass options for you to explore you can find which one fits your best needs here.
This season, as part of their efforts to increase the participation of Indigenous residents of the Northwest, Shames is offering an Adventure Pass for Indigenous People that provides for some significant opportunities to test out the sport.
If the weather Gods approve, the officials at Shames hope to host opening Day on December 5th
