ASC COVID-19 Participation Agreement

Updated September 1, 2021

Together we can Adapt Responsibly

Beginning Monday, September 6, 2021, the Adaptive Sports Center will require all incoming participants, including any other non-participating persons accompanying the participant(s), to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Anyone registered before September 6th can continue to follow the prior testing protocols or vaccine option that were in place at the time of registration.

Participants and any other non-participating persons accompanying the participant(s) who are not medically able to be vaccinated, including those not old enough to be vaccinated (at the time of publication under the age of 12), will continue to have the ASC's testing protocols as a viable pathway to participation. These individuals will need to provide a negative test taken within 5 days prior to participation. Additionally, masks will be required at all times while inside and will be required when within 10 feet of other participants, staff, and the general public while outside. 

The ASC is a highly interactive environment, and this update is for the benefit of many of our participants who have primary or underlying conditions that are COVID risk factors. We are happy to report that our entire staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated and we're ready to have some fun in the mountains.

Our program is located at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, a Vail Resorts owned and operated resort. Our COVID and vaccine policies are in line with the resort's policies which you can review here.

All policies and guidelines are subject to change.

VACCINATED PARTICIPANTS

Fully vaccinated participants will be required to comply with the Gunnison County Public Health Orders at the time of your visit.

UNVACCINATED PARTICIPANTS

Unvaccinated participants will be required to follow additional ASC polices as outlined below. This will not only help to make your visit as normal as possible, this will also help protect those within our community who are not able to get vaccinated, such as those with an underlying medical condition.

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. The ASC will be following Gunnison County social distancing guidelines for outdoor programming with a minimum of 10 feet during programming sessions and 6 feet during non-activities. Those who cannot or will not maintain social distancing requirements will not be allowed to participate.

  4. Respect other's comfort zones. People will desire and need their space. During programming, interaction with other ASC participants and the general public will be minimized to the greatest extent possible.
  5. We know there are several additional ASC policies that apply to unvaccinated individuals. We appreciate your cooperation. However, if the ASC staff determines that a participant cannot comply with reasonable accommodation or refuses to meet his/her obligations, we will need to cancel any and all lessons.

What if there are signs and symptoms during your visit?

  1. If a participant is feeling moderate to severe symptoms after hours, they will be directed to call the local health care professionals and follow those directives. Gunnison County Public Health Hotline: 970-641-7660
