How is Selkirk Snowcat Skiing preparing to operate this winter?
With guidance from Work Safe BC, Ministry of Health, HeliCat Canada and BC tourism organizations we have established operational guidelines on how to run the various parts of our business which include altering our tour schedule, increasing sanitation, implementing food service and transportation protocols and complying with all new regulations such as the maximum number of guests and staff in the lodge at any one time.
What Safety Precautions Are You Taking To Protect Guests And Staff?
- We have added an extra day between tours for enhanced cleaning in the lodge, office and snowcats.
- We will conduct pre-arrival screening and a second screening questionnaire upon arrival at the farmhouse/office.
- We will take the temperature of each guest and staff prior to transport to the lodge.
- Provide masks or face shields when required or requested.
- Install additional hand sanitizing stations at the farmhouse/office, lodge and in the snowcats.
- Installing a plexiglass shield at the bar.
For the health and safety of our staff:
