Covid 19 Operation Changes and Protocols

Winter 2020-2021 Hours of Operation

December 10th, 2020 thru March 7th, 2021

The safety of our staff, guests, and community is our guiding principle in developing a thoughtful and well-informed operations plan. Our plans are informed by Wyoming’s statewide public health orders as well as Teton County’s public health order. Our open spaces make our Ranch a great place for social distancing outdoors. Our lodge is limited by capacity with these new rules and we will do our best to control congestion and traffic flow, including recommending guests purchase trail passes and book online for skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking. We suggest you dress warmly when planning to approach the lodge should a short wait be required. We’re confident everyone will enjoy their time here with us and we thank you for your understanding and patronage.
