Mount Kato is committed to take an active role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 by creating a safe environment for all of our staff and guests. We have adopted the following protocols based upon the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the State of MN and local requirements and/or recommendations.
Since the start of the pandemic, Mount Kato has been working closely with MN Ski Areas Association (MSAA) and National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) to create a COVID-19 Operations Guide which will be available upon request. Below is a summary of what our guests can expect to experience this winter at Mount Kato and other ski areas in our region.
We are all in this together and if we work together...we are expecting a safe & awesome 2020-2021 ski and snowboard season!
Current NSAA & MSAA guidance encourages only parties that arrived at the ski area together to ride a lift together. Protocols are being established to provide adequate separation between unrelated parties including leaving at least one vacant space on the chair (For example, leaving empty spaces on a quad chair) while unrelated parties wear a face covering on the lift.
There will be no indoor/outdoor seating while Executive Order 20-99 is in effect.
Guests will not be allowed to leave any personal items like bags, coolers etc. in the chalet.
All personal items will need to be taken to your vehicle while skiing & riding. Rearranging and moving tables will not be allowed.
Seating capacity will be significantly impacted this season. We will all need to work together on this one.
