COVID Safety for the 2021-22 Ski Season

Guests ages 12 and over will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccinations to dine at our indoor, cafeteria-style restaurants. Adults 18 and over will also need to provide a photo ID. Government issued IDs with a photo and name matching the guest’s vaccination card will be accepted, as well as Epic Passes with photos.

Guests can provide proof of vaccination by showing:

  • A physical vaccination card
  • A photo of a vaccination card on their phone
  • An official vaccination mobile app, including all official U.S. state, European Union and foreign country mobile apps, digital passports and digital certificates; and the following third-party vaccination mobile apps: Clear Health Pass, IATA Travel Pass App, Verifly, VaxYes by Gogetdoc, and CommonPass

One-time validation available:

After the first validation of COVID-19 vaccination, guests may opt for a small, non-transferable sticker to be applied to the front of their pass. Guests with this sticker can re-enter indoor, cafeteria-style restaurants at any Vail Resorts property for the remainder of the season without re-validating their proof of vaccination at the door. Guests may also opt not to receive a sticker and instead to re-validate their proof of vaccination each time they enter indoor, cafeteria-style restaurants. Regardless, Vail Resorts will not be recording any guest vaccination status information.

The following vaccinations recognized by the World Health Organization will be accepted:

Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, Oxford-AstraZeneca, Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac. This is currently the only part of our experience that will require proof of vaccination, unless required by local public health.

Keystone's quick-service restaurants that will require proof of vaccination include:

  • Labonte's Cabin
  • Mountain House (including Last Lift)
  • Summit House (including Founders)
  • Timber Ridge

We strive to provide a variety of dining options for all of our guests who wish to dine with us. In order to accommodate the high volume of customers our restaurants serve, we ask you to observe the following dining policies:

  • All tables and seats will be available for present guests only. We ask that guests please do not hold tables.
  • All tables have a time limit of 45 minutes.
  • There is no storage of personal belongings in our restaurants or lodges unless in a designated locker or cubby area.
  • Catering or communal food for large groups is not permitted. Individuals and small groups are permitted to bring in their own food.
  • Holding multiple tables for large group dining and outside parties is not permitted.
