Are you ready for ski season?!
Well sharpen your skis and wax your boards because we’ve peered into our 2020/2021 crystal ball and, good news, it looks like a snow globe!
THE TRAIL FORWARD
The even better news is that the much-anticipated update of what ski season entails this year has finally been announced by the Steamboat Ski Resort, and there are important details, changes, and deadlines we want to make sure you are aware of.
RESERVATIONS ARE NOT REQUIRED AT STEAMBOAT
Reservations will not be required to ride the chairlifts or gondola at Steamboat Ski Resort, this winter, however, there’s one caveat, you must buy lift tickets before October 31, 2020, to ensure you have a seat on the gondola or chairlifts this winter.
WE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU OUT IN THE COLD…
(VERY IMPORTANT: OCTOBER 31, 2020 LIFT TICKET DEADLINE TO GUARANTEE DATES!)
While we always recommend that our guests book their winter ski vacations as early as possible (to take advantage of the best selection of luxury homes and early bird pricing) this year it’s even more crucial to guarantee access to ski lifts.
As a preferred partner of Steamboat Ski Resort, if you reserve a luxury vacation home and purchase lift tickets with Moving Mountains by October 31, 2020, we will lock in your vacation dates to guarantee your seat on the gondola and chairlifts at Steamboat.
Don’t delay as many preferred dates for our vacation homes have already been booked. Plus, because of capacity restrictions for social distancing and safety, it could be challenging to guarantee mountain access on some of the peak demand ski dates for guests who miss the October 31, 2020 deadline. Walk-up lift tickets will not be for sale this year, as all lift tickets must be purchased in advance.
YOUR WORRY-FREE WINTER
We know it’s difficult to plan these days with so many unknowns, however, both Steamboat Ski Resort and Moving Mountains have modified our vacation assurance policies to accommodate an unexpected change of plans.
When you’re reserving your luxury vacation home and lift tickets with us, our guest services staff will explain all of the details of both the Reservation Assurance and Adventure Assurance policies.
WHAT ELSE TO EXPECT:
PLAN NOW, SO YOU CAN PLAY LATER
Because it’s so much more relaxing to have everything taken care of ahead of time, rather than googling where to eat or what to do when you’re not schussing down the slopes! Our guest services team is already excellent at making suggestions for all ages, tastes, and activity preferences. We’ll work together to come up with the perfect itinerary for your stay.
For lunch, most of the on-mountain restaurants will be open, serving up delicious food to fuel your ski day. Grab ‘n go options will be plentiful, outdoor seating will be encouraged with additional outdoor tents for staying toasty.
Sit down lunch restaurants will require advance reservations. Downtown restaurants also will be socially-distanced (and delicious), with reduced capacity, so reservations, before you arrive, are highly encouraged.
At this time, masks are required for both staff and guests. Guests can remove masks once they are seated at their table, though everyone will need to put their mask back on to move throughout the restaurant.
And, of course, our luxury catered chalets are also an option, eliminating the need for advance reservations or spending too much time in public.
