By now your family is probably suffering from cabin fever and need to get out and do some fun things. Well, Blue Mountain Resort has reopened its Outdoor Adventures in it’s Summit Adventure Park.
Adventures includes the High Ropes Course, Outdoor Rock Climbing, Zip Lines, Free-Fall Belay and Outdoor Laser Tag. The reopening of outdoor adventures was thanks to Carbon County moving into the “green phase” on Friday, June 12th.
“Although the mountain is in the green phase, the safety of Blue Mountain’s staff and guests is still top priority,” said Ashely Seier, Marketing Manager at Blue Mountain.
She goes on to explain that Blue Mountain is following all CDC recommendations and State guidelines while operating activities. Changes such as gloves being provided to all guests, frequent and rigorous sanitation and limited session sizes have all been implanted in the Adventure Park and around the resort. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets online at shopskibluemt.com to limit contact at the ticket windows and avoid smaller session sizes selling out. A full list of precautions can be found on our COVID-19 response page: https://www.skibluemt.com/safety-precautions/.
The High Ropes Course will again host the special event “Night Time Zip and Climb” every Friday night through October. Guests can experience the course under the stars with laser lights and glow sticks. Due to the limited capacity of the course, these weekly events are expected to sell out. Guests interested in attending should purchase tickets online ahead of time.
In addition to the Summit Adventure Park, Blue Mountain is also open for Camping, Glamping, Down Hill Mountain Biking, Outdoor Fitness Classes, Hiking and Disc Golf. Slopeside Pub & Grill is open with indoor, outdoor and bar seating. Curbside pick up from the restaurant still remains an option for those not yet ready to venture out.
