COVID-19 Update

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.

  • USSS - US Ski and Snowboard has a Covid Taskforce.  They have been meeting 2x per week since July and are composed of USSS staff, coaches (both national team and from clubs) and medical personnel and staff from many disciplines and levels.  They have developed great resources for the clubs, which we are mandated to follow.  
  • Western Region and PNSA (Pacific Northwest Ski Association) - rules coming from the taskforce are interpreted and applied to our Region and Division.  This may include more stringent or less stringent standards depending on many factors.
  • USASA - For any Big Mountain or other competitions we also have to follow the rules of those governing organizations. 
  • CDC - We take all information and consider it again the CDC guidelines.  USSS/Western Region and PNSA also make sure the CDC guidelines are being interpreted and followed closely.
  • State or Oregon (OHA - Oregon Health Authority) and any further county restrictions are followed.  This final layer makes sure we are following any local trends and that we offer appropriate levels of programming that is responsive to local areas in the county where we program.  
  • State and County Regulations where we travel.  Any event, such as Fall Camp, or any travel project, whether as a team or individually with team representation have to be considered and followed.  This includes communication with local health agencies of our travel with numbers of athletes and locations where competition will take place
  • Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort & USFS - Because our organization's primary place of business occurs within the permit area and with permission from Mt Hood Meadows we also implement and follow any specific protocols and procedures that our host business asks its guest and us as a program to follow.  This includes information and rules set forth by the USFS as MHM operates under a permit from the United State Forest Service.
  • Finally, the ski team delivery is subject to self evaluation and its own rules and reacts to any localized issues that can occur. 

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.
