MRM Patrol – Vail Safety Protocols

Effective November 2021:

Following is a summary of health and safety practices that are expected to be followed by all Vail resort locations for 21/22 season. We are providing checklists and recommendations to help you navigate these requirements. Please review the following items and begin reading documents provided and doing the quizzes – each of these areas will need to be complete by the first week on duty unless otherwise noted.

Health Screen: Each day that we volunteer you are required to formally complete a health screening, same as last year. Please follow this link to the online screening before you come to the hill. This is also accessible directly from the home page by clicking the health icon. Mad River Mountain Volunteer Health Screen Form.

Blood Borne Pathogens: All are required to completed the linked quiz to confirm understanding after review of the Vail training policy documents:

Mule Drivers – Applicable to Hill Leaders and Assistant Hill Leaders only (or as assigned by PD)

Respiratory Protection Program: This will be a repeat of the query that we received last year. A new link will come to each of you via email before opening and needs to be completed at that time. You will receive two emails from RespClearance: one with log-in information and another with a link to complete your medical evaluation online.

Also, we will be doing the N95 fit screening process again this year. Expect to be processed through the quick fitting and receive a new N95 in your first week on shift. NOTE: N95 mask use is considered a requirement when treating patients in the patrol room.

Vaccine Verification: All volunteer patrollers must present their COVID-19 vaccination documentation (card or photo) in person to Ashley Goings, the Vail volunteer coordinator or to GM Larry Kuebler before patrolling. Minimum vaccination is two doses of Pfizer or Moderna, or one dose of J&J. It is currently expected that this verification will occur on your first duty shifts. NOTE: As soon as you present your vaccination doc to the assigned manager, then you must submit your attestation that you have accurately and truthfully represented your vaccination status. You will do that by entering/submitting this form: Volunteer Vaccination Tracking. Finally, please let us know that you have submitted proper vaccine verification by updating your info here (or click on the vaccine image on the home page): Vaccine Records Confirmation for Patrol

General Procedural and Safety Considerations:

  • There are no reservations this year for volunteers, employees, or guests.
  • Face coverings are required indoors (but not outdoors, in lift lines, or on chairs – where guests can be grouped)
  • Proof of vaccination is required of Anyone wishing to dine indoors
  • Patrollers can bring guests into the Patrol Room; however, the person needs to be vaccinated to enter the breakroom where others may be eating. Guests may be asked to leave the area if too crowded, not allowing for proper distancing between people.
  • Patrollers should only eat in the breakroom, with restriction on number of people to allow for safe distancing.
