Staying and playing safely during the pandemic.

In order to ensure safety for all guests, ski chalets around the country are adopting strict social distancing rules. This is also true for Giants Ridge.

Guests who do not have a dining reservation in the Main Chalet or Burnt Onion Kitchen & Brews will be asked to get ready and warm up in their vehicles.

Stay at the Lodge for:

  • True ski-in/out access
  • Dining in with a fully-equipped kitchen
  • Plenty of private space for the family
  • ​Après ski amenities

The Lodge offers the ultimate in convenience.

The good news for guests of the Lodge at Giants Ridge is that our facility is a true ski-in, ski-out facility, with the main chairlift just feet from our door, making it fast and easy to pop your skis or board off and pop into your suite to warm up.

Grabbing a bite to eat is easy, too, as every condo is equipped with a kitchen, pots and pans, dishes, and utensils.

Dining & Pool Area: Advance reservations required.

The Lodge at Giants Ridge is not without its own COVID restrictions. Dining reservations will be required at The Sleeping Giant Restaurant & Bar, which will be open Fridays through Sundays.

Reservations also will be required for the pool and hot tub area and game room area.

This is necessary to maintain capacity restrictions and ensure all of our guests have an opportunity to enjoy our amenities without overcrowding.

The Lodge at Giants Ridge is an independently owned and operated small business. We want to remain open and provide a safe environment for both our employees and our guests.

For these reasons it is imperative that guests follow the statewide mask mandate requiring that masks be worn in all public spaces.

At the Lodge, this includes the lobby, all hallways and stairways, the elevator, the pool area (if you are not swimming or enjoying the spa), the exercise room, and when not seated at your table in the restaurant and bar.

If you have forgotten your mask, you may pick up one for free at the front desk. If you choose not to wear a mask for any reason other than a medical reason, we respectfully ask that you choose another property for your stay.

We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you this winter sports season!
