Closure of Amenities and Facilities

Closure of Amenities and Facilities

Association News


See what amenities have begun to open back up here. Please note that facilities will begin opening up as allowable by the state/county and in an economical way. Please check the amenity web pages for updated info.

As of today, we are in Stage 2 of the State’s reopening plan. We unable to open up the gym, pools and campground due to them being classified as “high risk” and not allowable in our current Stage.


The Lodge restaurant and Pub is now open for Takeout. See details and menu here.


Governor Gavin Newsom has issued a state-wide ‘mandatory stay at home’ order. With this news, we must cease grooming and patrolling the XC Ski trails. We understand the importance of this to our community, however the Executive Order (N-33-20) clearly states “…all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuing of operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors.” Unfortunately groomers and ski patrollers do not fit into this exception and the XC operation must come to a complete close.

The order does allow leaving the home for food, prescriptions and health care, but caution to practice social distancing all the time. Please read the complete Executive Order for more information.

We appreciate all of the support in operating this week and we are grateful to have served our community.
