Academy news march 13

As the weekend approaches , I wanted to inform everyone as to the situation at the hill.

I have just completed a full wipe down of all tables , counters and common areas that we lay hands on, using a bleach solution as recommended we will repeat as necessary over the weekend. This is a good thing but common sense and hand washing is very important . The risk at a ski area is very low , use common sense and wash hands frequently , the slopes are a good place to be . It would be best to keep gloves on and have helmet and goggles on when teaching and its also recommended to drink lots of water. No hand shakes , like the penguins say “smile and wave “

Goes without saying, but here goes… if you are sick don’t come in.

Here is the information I received from the Ski Association (ASSQ) regarding COVID and the QC gov communication banning public gatherings over 250 earlier today

  • In general Quebec is low risk.
  • The no gatherings over 250 rule does NOT apply to ski resorts, we can continue with business as usual. We are treated as a shopping mall, with customers coming and going. We do not need to count or limit people in the lodge. The ASSQ will send up proper messaging about this.
  • We will be informed immediately  if this changes.
  • We can continue to host OUTDOOR events. It is suggested we CANCEL indoor events. We will cancel the après-ski concert portion of the 100 yr celebrations on Saturday. Outdoor activities will go ahead as planned.
  • Business as normal for lessons, cafeteria, rentals etc. BUT be smart and practice proper hygiene
  • Updates are likely to come.

Hoping to see everyone on the weekend,
