20-21 WINTER OPERATIONS UPDATE

Letter from our Managing Director

At The Omni Homestead Resort, the health and safety of our guests and associates has always been, and always will be, our top priority. COVID-19 has changed every facet of our world and the way we do business. In an effort to Stay A Part of Safety, we have updated our already thorough cleaning guidelines and implemented additional processes and procedures to ensure your health, safety and comfort. The Omni Safe & Clean initiative follows the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Protocols and guidelines from these authorities are expected to evolve, and as such, so will our below processes and procedures. Similarly, these guidelines meet or exceed the “Stay Safe” initiative set forth by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA).

Currently, all guests ages 5 and older must wear a face mask and adhere to social distancing guidelines. For our snow sports, we will be implementing additional measures such as lift line barriers, designated entrances and exits, single direction traffic flow and thorough sanitizing of rental equipment between uses. Resort associates will manage the lift line to ensure adequate spacing is observed. 

To expedite the check-in process, we strongly encourage advance ticket purchases via our online store or upon arrival at the resort’s front desk. Waivers and rental forms will also be available at the front desk and should be completed prior to arriving at the Mountain Lodge. For guests renting equipment for two or more days, their reserved rentals will be marked with their name and room number and available at Kober’s from 8:30-10:30 am on their second, third or fourth day. 

Reservations will be required for tubing and ice skating and limited to 25 persons per session. Ice skating sessions will be 75 minutes with a 15-minute break between sessions for cleaning and rink maintenance.
