BLAZING ADVENTURES PROTOCOLS

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our small, family-owned business has adapted to new formats, operations, and procedures to keep our staff and guests safe. Let this be your guide to how we anticipate enjoying the outdoors in Summer 2020. Safety and health of our staff and guests is our top priority. We will continue to monitor and abide by county and state regulations, along with recommendations from the CDC and WHO.

EMPLOYEE SAFETY
  • Employees must be symptom-free in order to report to work each day.
  • Each day, employees will undergo symptom and temperature checks. If they are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, they will be sent home immediately and quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours after symptoms subside.
  • Employees must report to a manager if they’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19 during the past 14 days.
  • Employees will maintain daily sanitation records for all work environments including offices, vehicles, rafts, SUPs, bikes, & guest gear.
  • Employees are currently required to wear face coverings while at work. Guides may remove face coverings during rafting, due to safety measures in place. Guides will wear face coverings at all other times.
  • We understand that we’ll have to adapt to changes throughout the summer. As the summer progresses, we will continue to update all safety protocols.

 

GUEST SAFETY
  • Guests will be asked to report to our staff if they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 during the past 14 days or if they are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19.
  • If exposed or experiencing symptoms, guests will not be allowed to participate. This is to protect the health and safety of our staff and other guests. We will be flexible with re-scheduling or cancellation due to guest illness or exposure.
  • Neck gaiters or masks are required during transportation and may be required during activities, depending on distancing. Neck gaiters are available to purchase at Aspen and Snowmass offices.
  • Lunches, snacks, and drinks will be handled by staff only.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available on every trip and in our offices.
  • We encourage each guest to pre-sign waivers using our e-waiver system. If unable to e-sign, extra waivers will be available onsite with multiple pens and clipboards available. Pens and clipboards will be disinfected following each use.

Blazing Adventures cannot stress enough that the health and safety of our guests, staff, and community is of the utmost importance to us. We will continue to update our protocols as information evolves. Please reach out to us for general activity information, cancellation policies, or as a local resource for your party’s needs. Thank you and we look forward to getting you out on your next adventure!
