COVID-19 Updates

Our latest news, response, and policies

In spite of the novel coronavirus pandemic, Girdwood remains one of the best places to ski in the world. While the circumstances posed by the pandemic are unique and unprecedented, we have carefully created our operating strategy for the upcoming season to best protect people and still do what we do best. In addition to safety measures and detailed planning, booking flexibility will be a key tool in making this possible. For the 2020-21 season, new bookings will be fully refundable until October 1st (excluding some payment methods). After October 1st, any cancellations or interruptions due to COVID-19 will be rolled forward as credit to the following season.

At CPG, we continue to thoughtfully consider our operating and sales strategies to mitigate the risks of COVID to our guests and community and still be able to provide a first-class trip this winter. To that end, we pledge to do everything reasonably possible and will expect the same of our guests and employees. The mountains will be as awe-inspiring as they have always been, and the snow will turn them into some of the best ski runs on earth. There will be some challenges around travel, and some changes to normal perks like nightlife and high fives; but, the core of what makes skiing in Alaska so special will still be there this year or whenever you're ready to come. 

Our partners in hospitality, Alyeska Resort, have put together a best-in-class strategy for keeping the Hotel and Ski Area running safely through the upcoming winter. (You can find details for the Hotel and the Mountain here.)

Our thoughts are with everyone personally affected by the novel coronavirus pandemic. Our office remains open, and we hope you don't hesitate to be in touch with inquiries about Alaska and CPG's program.
