COVID-19

Concerned about the spread of COVID-19? We are doing everything we can to make Ski Ward as safe as possible while remaining open and providing fun, family friendly activities!

Outdoor Dining

Masks are required at all times except when seated at a table. Once your party is seated you are able to remove your masks and enjoy your food and drinks outdoors! If you get up from your seat for any reason we kindly ask you replace your mask.

We sanitize tables and chairs after each party leaves ensuring you have a clean space to enjoy! Bathrooms and high touch surfaces are sanitized multiple times throughout the day. Pens are sanitized after each customer so you don’t need to worry about signing your receipt! 

Due to state restaurant guidelines, only 6 people can sit to a table. Please do not move tables or chairs as they are spaced out so we can adhere to state guidelines. 

No reservations required! When you arrive please either take a seat or proceed to the service window on the back patio and we would be happy to serve you either way!

Summer Tubing

Masks are required while purchasing tickets and walking to and from summer tubing. However, masks are not required while tubing because summer tubing is an activity that is already socially distanced!

Our tubes are 3 ft wide and each tube has a leash of 3 ft or more meaning that by holding your tube you are already spaced 6 feet from another person! In addition to that, we have placed markers at both the top and bottom of TubaSlide for people to stand on to ensure they are at least 6 feet away from other people. We also have a top and bottom attendant who help to maintain space between customers.

The short answer is yes! Each tube is only used by 1 customer per day. After that customer is done tubing, the tube is then put in a “dirty” tube pile. The tubes are then left in the sun for the rest of the day. At the end of the day all of the “dirty” tubes are sanitized with a disinfectant.

No reservations are required! Just walk up our entrance and proceed to the back patio service window and buy your tickets at the time you would like to go tubing!

Season Passes

You have until 1 November 2020 to defer your 2020-2021 season pass until the 2021-2022 season. We are offering this so you don’t have to worry how COVID-19 will affect your family this winter, just email stephanie@skiward.com by 1 November 2020 if you would like to defer your pass to nest season, no questions asked.

If the state of Massachusetts requires  ski areas to close during the 2020-2021 season, you will get a credit toward a season pass for the 2021-2022 season. This credit will be based on how many days Ski Ward was open during the 2020 – 2021 season and the average number of operating days per season.
