The State of WI is currently under a mask mandate until January 2021. The mandate states the face coverings must be worn indoors except for private residences; with several exceptions. The full order can be found here: https://evers.wi.gov/Documents/COVID19/EmO01-FaceCoverings.pdf.
AVR’s Protocols, Procedures, and Restrictions
General Outside:
Face coverings will be required at all times. Including: inside the buildings, base area and riding a lift.
Be courteous to others at all times, give people their space. There will be a line, expect it and be patient.
In the lift line, maintain a tip to tail distance from people in front of you.
More outdoor seating will be available this season.
Please check the website for posted hours of operation before coming.
Tailgating and large group gatherings will not be permitted.
There will be no saving of tables.
There will be no storing of items anywhere on premises, beside the lockers. Please try and make your vehicle, your homebase.

Riding Chair Lifts
Face coverings must be worn when loading the chair lift and when riding the lift with people not from your party.
If you come together, please ride the chair lift together - parties/families are encouraged to fill the lift whenever possible
We ask that single riders load the quad chairs 1 on each side of the chair
Individual riders that do not want to ride with others will not be forced to
Realize that this may lead to longer lift lines and a longer wait - anticipate longer waits on weekends and holidays
The natural distance created between skis and snowboard will allow for social distancing in the lift line from forward and behind - we will also create lift mazes that will assist with socially distancing participants side to side, when in line

General Inside

Hand sanitizer stations will be readily available in common areas.

Season Passes
We ask that everyone come prior to opening day and pick up their passes. This will eliminate the longer lines on opening day.

As rentals may be more limited than in previous years, and we wish to decrease the customer’s time spent in the rental shop – we are strongly encouraging customers to get dressed in their vehicles and make their vehicles their homebase.

What We Expect from You

Please wear a mask when indoors and in lift lines
Be physically and mentally prepared to stay outside.
Resort occupancy will be limited this year and access to the lodge – with the exception of restrooms – is not guaranteed.

Be respectful of employees at all times, including while enforcing COVID-19 related regulations.
These policies and procedures are subject to change based on statewide protocol. Thanks for your patience.
What is the difference between an All Access Lift Ticket and a Beginner Lift Ticket
The all access lift ticket gives you access to every run and lift at the resort. The beginner lift ticket limits you to the easy and intermediate runs. With a beginner lift ticket you are unable to ski or snowboard on the black diamonds and the terrain park.


What are your SKI hours?
Midweek: 10:00am to 10:00pm excluding holidays
Weekend: 9:00am to 10:00pm

New to skiing and snowboarding

Do I need to wear a helmet?
No, we do not require helmets but we do RECOMMEND wearing one. We rent them in our rental room for $10 per day.
Do you rent the ski clothing?
No, we do not. We do sell ski clothing in our pro shop.
What is the cost?
The ski lift ticket price varies depending on when and where you are going to ski. We run two sessions per day and you can purchase a "session" lift ticket or you can purchase an all day ticket. The all day ticket gets you on the hill from open to close. We also sell a beginner lift ticket, which just gets you on the green and blue runs west of the EZ Rider.
If ski rental is needed, then the cost to rent skis/snowboards is $30 per person, per day.
