An increasing number of individual resorts and entire countries have announced that all employees at ski areas must be fully vaccinated against COVID 19 in order to be able to work this winter.
In Canada and the US a growing number of individual resorts and resort groups, including the largest, Vail Resorts, have now mandated that stuff must be fully vaccinated in order to work there this winter.
In Canada ski areas around Banff have announced similar rules and Whistler is owned by Vail so the rule applies there too.
In Europe, Italy has included that requirement in a list of rules agreed to allow ski area to re-open there this winter after being closed last season. All resort staff here will also be required to wear surgical quality masks.
The new Italian rules also state that draglifts and chairlifts can run at full capacity but there’ll be an 80% capacity on enclosed lifts like cable cars. Social distancing must also be maintained and measures such as online purchasing and protective screens in ticket offices will be the norm.
