Proof of Vaccination Required for the 2021.22 Season

November 05 2021

Guests and staff must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to ski or snowboard at Revelstoke Mountain Resort for the 2021/22 season.

The safety, health, and well-being of those who work at and visit Revelstoke Mountain Resort, remain our first and highest priority. The COVID-19 virus continues to be a risk, and we are committed to providing the safest environment possible. For the 2021/22 winter season, Revelstoke Mountain Resort is requiring all guests 12 years of age plus 4 months, or older, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

In addition to keeping everyone safe, we also want to keep lift wait times as short as possible. Given the enclosed nature of the Revelation Gondola, proof of a COVID-19 Immunization Record will be required to access all facilities at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, including the gondola and chairlifts. Our intention is to operate all lifts at full capacity this winter to maximize everyone’s time on the slopes.

In addition to proof of vaccination, face coverings will be required in all indoor locations, including the Revelation Gondola, for guests aged 5 and up.
