COVID-19 Update

Vista Ridge will be open for the 2020-21 season and we look forward to welcoming you back! 

However, Skiing, Snowboarding & Tubing will be different this year due to Covid-19 and we want to make sure our guests are aware of these changes. We will be implementing a number of different operational changes guided by current public measures, discussions and meetings with our ski areas association, and are made to ensure the safety of our guests and staff. 


Here is some great info from the Canadian Ski Council about what our industry is doing to adjust. Ski Well, Be Well.
