Bogus is asking that people wear face masks inside, in line and when it’s not possible to social distance.

“Things are going well for us so far. Our guests have been great about complying with our COVID-19 protocols,” Saad said.

Saad added that new hand sanitizing stations have been placed around the mountain and equipment is disinfected regularly.
