We had a successful summer season with the implementation of Covid precautions and tracking.
In planning for winter, we are seeing additional precautions currently being developed. We plan to follow the guidelines and protocols developed and set forth by our governing bodies. MRT receives their Covid information from many sources. When daily and weekly changes occur these are synthesized into the policies we follow as a team. Our sources of information come from but are not limited to these organizations.
This may seem like a lot and it is, however, the safety or our athletes, our families, our coaching staff and the greater public around us is an optic we will not lose this season. As we get closer to our season launch date we will be providing specific information on our protocols and rules we will need to follow. Expect facemasks to be required (neck gators are not a good covering as they fall below the nose and the nose must be covered), social distancing in lift lines and when grouping on the hill, temperature checks and health screenings.
Mount Hood Meadows is actively working on formalizing their COVID guidelines for the upcoming season. Please review the latest here: https://www.skihood.com/en/covid19-update
We are working to implement the USSS guidelines. (ie Races limited to 100 athletes or less - split venues for boys and girls etc..) This may affect our race schedule and limit event sizes. Any updates or changes will be communicated as soon as they are available.
Resilience is a term that is part of our MRT Values. With great resilience to all this extra stimulus and responsibility to others we can overcome these inconveniences to allow our program a chance to safely thrive this winter. Our athletes deserve a chance to be outside, without their electronics (unless shooting videos for instagram) and will enjoy the opportunity to learn and master the sport of skiing.
Meadows Race Team is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to enhance lives through the sport of alpine skiing. MRT is dedicated to creating a FUN environment that promotes a life-long love of skiing and racing for the athletes from 6 years old to 19 years old.
Our mission is to enhance lives through alpine skiing. MRT fosters a community that inspires all of its members to reach their full potential on and off the mountain. We strive to be an avenue for child development using skiing as a vehicle and inspire youth to become healthier, happier and wiser versions of themselves.
