Covid-19 Updates

October 15, 2021

YMCA of the Rockies is committed to providing you a fun and safe experience.

Guest Safety Guidelines and Practices

Consistent with the guidelines and requirements of our local counties, YMCA of the Rockies is taking precautions to protect the health of our guests and our staff.

We ask that all guests and staff demonstrate the YMCA values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Faith toward each other as we all navigate these changes.


Guests are asked to follow the protocols below regarding face coverings while at YMCA of the Rockies:

       Snow Mountain Ranch

  • Masks are required for all guests when in the Schlessman Commons Dining Room when not seated at a table.
  • Both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons are strongly encouraged to wear masks in public indoor settings or outdoors when six-feet distance cannot be maintained to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • Please be respectful when visiting other businesses in our local areas, as each business may have their own requirements regarding face coverings.

       Estes Park Center

  • As of Oct. 20, 2021, masks will be required to be worn in all indoor public spaces in Larimer County according to a public health order from the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment. The order requires that all persons aged 3 years and older wear face coverings. Limited exceptions, including for individuals who cannot medically tolerate a face covering.  

Cleaning Protocols

YMCA of the Rockies is also committed to enhanced cleaning and sanitation measures. These cleaning protocols are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and state and local public health officials.

All public areas of YMCA of the Rockies buildings are deeply sanitized on a regular basis using hospital-grade EPA-approved agents and virus eliminating chemicals. High-touch areas are sanitized multiple times per day with CDC-recommended cleaning materials.

Please note that there is currently no maid service available. Linens can be exchanged at the guest laundry facilities. For lodge room guests,  towels and supplies are available at the linen tables in lodge lobbies. Currently there is no self-serve coffee available in lodges. Please visit the dining hall or cafe for your morning coffee needs!
