COVID-19 Policies 

COVID OPERATING PLAN - 2021/22 SEASON

A reminder for those coming to the club, please remember to complete the Daily Health Check every day prior to arrival - click here to access the form.
 
We ask that you also remember to wear your Club badge at all times when on Club property, including indoors, as it verifies that you are double vaccinated, as required by the vaccination policy.
 
Guests must show proof of double vaccination and photo ID when purchasing a lift ticket.  Guests who are at the Club but not skiing are required to obtain a wristband at the front desk, once proof of double vaccination and photo ID has been provided.
 
Our Craigleith community is only as safe as each of us make it, so we ask you to please consider the health and safety of others when following our COVID guidelines for operating the club.
