Summer 2020 Information & FAQ’s

At Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, the safety of our employees and guests has long been our highest priority. As we prepare for our summer opening, “new normal” operating procedures and guidelines have been instituted to minimize the spread of Covid-19. Strict adherence to these guidelines and procedures will allow us to provide outdoor recreation for families and friends to create life-long memories and feel safe while doing so.  

Guidelines for All Guests and Employees:

Follow the guidelines issued by the CDC to limit the spread of Covid-19:

  • Stay at home if you feel sick. We will work to re-schedule any planned visit.
  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others not in your household.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Wash your hands frequently, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. 
  • Additionally, the state of Massachusetts has mandated the use of a face covering in all public areas where 6 feet of social distance cannot be maintained. We ask that you carry a mask or face covering with you and wear it when:
    • In any indoor facility on property (Country Inn, Country Store, Welcome Center, Christiansen’s Tavern, bathrooms, and offices). 
    • In ticket or ride queues.
    • In chairlift lines.

Operational Procedures:

  • Jiminy Peak will limit daily attendance. We strongly recommend purchasing tickets on-line, in advance, to ensure availability on your date of choice.
  • Mountain Adventure Park tickets will be sold in 4-hour blocks. All Park passes will be sold for a 6 hour time period.
  • Single ride and 6-pack ticket options will be available only at the ticket window if capacity allows. 
  • Summer ticketing has moved to the Crane Lodge Ticket Window, to provide a barrier between guests and staff when picking up or purchasing tickets.
  • A mask is required for entry to the Adventure Park and we ask that it be worn when social distancing is not possible.
  • All Adventure Park attractions and equipment will be sanitized after each use.
  • Increased cleaning and sanitization of common areas in the Adventure Park.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the Adventure Park. 
  • A hand wash station will be available near Coaster’s, outside of Christiansen’s Tavern.
  • Restroom facilities will be available in Christiansen’s Tavern and the Paul Major Welcome Center.


Is it safe for my family and I to visit your resort?

We are committed to keeping you and your family as safe as possible during your visit to our resort.

  • Our staff has been trained to ensure they understand and feel confident managing the physical distancing and hygiene aspects of their role, handle unsafe conditions and emergency situations.  Our staff is also equipped with the proper personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • We have reduced park capacity to allow for appropriate physical distancing on property.
  • All attractions and equipment will be properly sanitized after each use.
  • We have enhanced and increased our cleaning protocols for all “high-traffic” and “high-touch” areas.
  • Hand-sanitizer will be located throughout the resort.  We urge you to do your part and use the provided sanitizer before and after your ride.

Am I required to wear a mask?

Guests are required to have a face covering with them to enter the park. We ask that it be worn whenever social distancing is not possible, for your own protection and for the protection of other guests and employees at the resort.

If I want to remain flexible and not commit to a specific date, can I just show up?

We will be limiting park capacity this summer. Guests who pre-purchase tickets online will be guaranteed admission. Those who arrive without tickets will be admitted on a first come, first served basis, subject to availability. 

Will I have to share a MAP ride with someone I do not know?

Only those guests arriving together may share a ride. Individual guests will ride solo.

Does everyone in my party need to purchase a ticket to enter the park?

No. Everyone can enjoy the natural beauty of the Berkshires. We even have hiking / walking trails that can be explored for free. However, anyone entering the park should have a face covering with them and be prepared to use it, should the need arise. Also, we do ask those without tickets not to enter the queue lines.
