The safety of our guests and employees remains a top priority for us at Homewood Mountain Resort and we have put new policies and procedures in place throughout the mountain and for our events.
We’ve made some big changes to Pride Ride this winter with these safety protocols in mind. However, we know that we can still celebrate the LGBTQ community and loudly display our pride with a fun day in the mountains. We ask participants to ski or ride with people in your household and avoid gathering with people from outside your household. Please enjoy our DJ Tailgate shows from the comfort of your own vehicle. We will have staff at the Dual Slalom drag race to ensure that both participants and spectators are following social distancing guidelines. As always masks are required while you are at Homewood Mountain Resort. Please review our full COVID-19 policies on our website before visiting Homewood.
