Because of the ongoing pandemic, there will likely be capacity limits and some resorts may be using a reservation system for tables in lodges.

On the slopes, you probably won't notice too many changes.

Skiing and snowboarding are already pretty safe because most people already wear goggles, masks and gloves.

Outdoor activities also have a lower rate of spread, so most aspects of snow sports will continue as usual.
