Special Notes

With visits to our venue a new experience during this pandemic, here are a few tips to make your visit to Van Ho a little more pleasant:

  • Please boot up at your car (while driving, leave them down by the heater vent so they’re nice and toasty)! Unless you drive with your ski boots on and your gas pedal is equipped with an NNN binding.
  • Leave your bags and lunch in your vehicle. Thermoses and small coolers will keep items from freezing.
  • Remember No Mask, No Distance, No Service! Face Coverings are required at all times, except while dining and actively skiing.
  • Although we would love for you to come in to explore the new Mountain Pass Lodge, please limited your time inside. Food is now available up on the second floor, and of course, bathrooms are available.
  • Day passes must be purchased ON-LINE

Enjoy the snow and see you out on the trails!
