Pitkin County requiring negative COVID-19 test for all Aspen visitors. That includes you, Denver skiers.

An affidavit will be prepared asking visitors to acknowledge that they have come to the area with a negative COVID-19 test and understand that local public health ordinances are in preparation for mass distribution in Pitkin County, so lodges and businesses are being prepared for its implementation on December 14th.

The affidavit will include confirmation that a visitor has had a negative test result within 72 hours of travel, or will be quarantined on arrival, either for 14 days, or until they receive a negative test result in Pitkin County at their expense.

Visitors will also be asked to confirm that they have been symptom-free for 10 days prior to the trip, as well as any dependents traveling with them.

A visitor is anyone who comes at night from outside of Pitkin, Eagle or Garfield counties.

Pitkin County is home to Aspen’s four ski areas: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass.
